  1. The MusicYo Kramers are nowhere on par with the US and Japan made 80s Kramers. Not sure what you're going about, lots of good things said over there about the MusicYo stuff but they're just decent imports, not pro-level stuff like the original Kramer stuff.
  2. Modern country isn't really country music. When I think of country music I think of Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, Waylon, etc. In many respects today's country is closer to 80's pop metal. Lots of county bands rocking Les Pauls nowadays.
  3. Eddie is scraping his pick on the strings behind the tune-o-matic bridge and in front of the stop bar. He is using a Ibanez Destroyer (copy of a Gibson Explorer). There's no tremolo on that song at all.
  4. He used the 5150 Kramer on the 1984, 5150, and OU812 tours. I believe he recorded 1984 with the Frankenstrat, but 5150 and OU812 were largely the Kramer guitar. Diver Down tour was still the Frankie, and by Carnal Knowledge he was using the Music Man guitar. So, roughly late 82/early 83 until about 1990 he was using Kramers. I'm sure someone can go through the timeline of the magazine ads.
  5. Eddie, absolutely. Also totally dug Lynch with his Baretta and Sambora with his sig Kramer.
  6. I've played some of the Gibson-era Kramers. The higher-end axes are good. The 84 and the Pacer Vintage are on par with the 80's Barettas and Pacers. I've owned a couple of the MusicYo Kramers, and they were a good value, on par with comparable-priced Jacksons and Ibanez. Good guitars for a beginner or mid-level players. The music scene today is completely different than the 80s. Not a lot of guitarists rock Floyds. The guys who do tend to be in the heavier bands and they tend to favor the Schecters and ESP/LTDs, as well as Ibanez. Both Kramer and Charvel/Jackson are more old-school guitars favored by older players. Nothing wrong with that, there's definitely a market there but I think it's impractical to think that that Kramer is ever going to be anything more than a niche brand again.
