    I like it! EVH has a nice quality for a reasonable price.

    Suppose Gibson will sue Fender over the Explorer headstock shape?

    Very Kramer.

    Gibson owns Kramer.

    Gibson targets EVH.

    :hmm:

    Tempting, but I think I'll wait to see what other colors they do in the future. I'd love to see them come out w/some 80's neon colors ... like hot/neon pink!

    It boggles my mind that Gibson has allowed the Kramer name to rot away, as they could make a killing on it if they wanted.

    I love that new blue color, but can’t understand why they didn’t stick with or at least also offer a maple fretboard.

    My favorite guitar for many years was my 1991 EBMM EVH.. The one on the left, the EVH Axis.jpg one on the right is a EBMM Axis..

    i dont know much at all about these guitars, except that when evh plays them, i dont hear much tone. ( i think thats probably what he wants too )
    when he played that explorer thing, while it was being cut up, now thats another matter entirely...1978..79?

    edit- the red white stripey charvel / kramer things ( the best ones out of the ones he used) had a really cool 3d vibe, slightly scooped mids, fat bottom and quite dynamic..but these ernie ball things..i never ' got' it.

    I like that Kramer style in Olive Drab.
    Not sure how I feel about Basswood though.
