Excellent

Peter4716, 14.11.2013
This is a great guitar for the price with a few manageable niggles. The Floyd Rose is more or less set for 9/10 slinkys having only three springs to counteract the string load at the bridge - changing to heavier gauge strings (I put an unused set of 12/52 DR Black Beauties on as they were going spare) overwhelms the three springs in concert pitch and I had to add two extra springs to the claw but it balanced out nicely with five. A five spring claw setup should have been standard really. The matt black fretboard and back neck looked dull and somewhat cheap but a heavy coat of wax soon rectified this. Also I could not see the wisdom in coil splitting only the neck humbucker - coil splitting both the neck and bridge humbuckers would seem more sensible and add more sound options. But overall the Kramer Assault 220 FR is great value for the dosh and plays perfectly. I also bought the Thomann Hard case (Item 122213) as the Kramer will not fit in a standard Les Paul hard case but the Thomann fits like a glove.

(Metal) ax in the woods

Andy_plays_guitar, 08.01.2012
So here's a review of the Kramer:

features:
2 (mostly) good-sounding humbuckers, more stable in voice (I've extensively tested: D) Floyd Rose, working locking mechanics, Allen key holder on the back of the headstock ... What more does a Metal-Les Paul need ?! Nobody can complain, especially for this price. Also very well thought out are the somewhat depressed pots. All in all, 5/5 *;)

sound:
First of all, I should say that I'm on the road with the guitar only in harder music styles. I've used a Roland Cube 20x, a Hughes & Kettner Vortex and Peavey Valveking, and some of them a Digitech Deathmetal Pedal.
After extensive testing, the impressive sound of the bridge pickup stands out. He cuts a good figure in both rock and high-gain metal. Both pickups are provided with a coil split, whereby I could notice only minimal to no sound differences at the rear pickup, whether in the clean channel as well as in the lead channel.
Now to the middle position (both humbuckers unsplit):
Personally, I can not do anything with this attitude. The sound sounds dull, has little brilliance, just boring. This changes immediately when you activate the coil split. The guitar gets a very interesting and hard-to-describe sound, which is very well suited for punk rock or the like.
Now to the bridge humbucker:
The bridge humbucker is very suitable for solos, no matter if rock or metal. This is where the coil split comes in most. Unplated, the sound is a Les Paul. As a singlecoil the sound reminds of Strats.

Overall, this guitar sounds the way it looks: perfect for tougher genres, but also has potential in other directions that you would not expect;).

Processing:
The red inlays are very clean processed, the neck is factory set acceptable (which is not fitting, is made to fit;)), the Floyd Rose, however, needs another feather, if you want to tune the guitar on Drop C. Also, the red edges on the ceiling are processed neatly and nowhere to find paint flaws. The pots are neatly installed, rotate as they should and the 3-way switch also works perfectly. The guitar was not scratched even when I received it or something similar, even in the electronics compartment everything is soldered clean - no signs of error. Only and alone was the jack socket loose when the guitar arrived. When tightening you must pay attention that the socket is not fixed but free. So you have to unscrew them completely to tighten. But at this price I can live with it;).

Conclusion:
This guitar is not only worth the money, it is easily worth twice as much! Anyone who wants a cheap metal guitar with usable Floyd Rose and does not really need a Flying-V, should definitely take a close look at this guitar;). I'm more than happy with her at home, in the rehearsal room, live or in the studio: she cuts a good figure everywhere. :)
