Kramer did a good job on the 2011 Stagemaster reissues. It's a very solid axe and I haven't played my Baretta much, since I got them.

Are they really that good compared to a "real" Stagey? I have not pulled the trigger yet but I must say I am interested. I wish I could pick one up and play it for a while just to get the feel.

In my opinion, they truly nailed it. It's a shame that there;s no place people can go to try one. They were so hard to get that I actually ordered 2 of the Duncan variety and they were delivered within days of each other. A VERY particular guitarist I know offered me a straight up trade for a mint 1987 Gibson Les Paul Custom Lite. I felt bad that he was trading such an expensive axe for a $900 axe, so I offered him a "trade back guarantee". It's been 3 months and I've repeatedly asked him if he wanted his Paul back.

I bought one w/o trying it out through Zzounds and OMIGAWDDD! this thing is very versatile, I love all the tones out of this thing, plus you can't go wrong with an Original floyd Rose...I play this guitar more then my Gibson Les Paul classic Custom [I only play it if I'm in a Gibson Mood, LOL!!]...I auditioned for a new band last week, and nailed it, thanks to this guitar rippingthru my Blackstar HT40...I can't say enough great things about the SM-1, it's the answer to all of my tastes

Nice to see you over here. I got banned from that other forum for saying nice things about Gibson/Kramers. I can't wait to play a SM1, but I can't find one in stock anywhere in Tennessee.

Just found what I though was a great deal at Guitar Center. They have a black SM1 listed for $400. Problem though....when I called they said it has a repaired broken headstock. So I am gonna pass on it.

Broken headstocks ain't no big deal.
If it is fixed properly, it's just as strong if not stronger than the original wood (as many Gipsun owners can attest to!) You'll never know it unless you look at it.

True, but it's kinda nice to start with one that didn't have a snapped headstock.

There's a guy at KF selling a neck/body with nothing else on it. I bet Jeff could turn that badboy into a monster!

Yes, that would be tempting but getting 4 more guitars in the last month has kept me busy. Kline Space Baretta, Pacer Vintage Tiger, Ibanez RG565. Also picked up a metallic blue 1989 Yamaha RGZ312 I got cheap. Gonna be refretting this one as this birdseye maple finished neck on this thing is worth more (to me) than the price for the whole guitar. Can you tell the tax refund was nice this year ?
