Spoiler: it’s a Kramer Pacer. Ok, but, like when and where was it made and stuff?
First of all I’m a casual guitar player who hasn’t played in years. This guitar has just been collecting dust in a closet. I bought it in, I believe, 2011 from a guy who was then my neighbor. It had been sitting in his closet for who knows how many years. I’m not sure he even knew how it got there. It didn’t have strings on it and he, a non-guitar player, basically thought it was junk. He thought the case was nice though, so he sold that to me for $40, and threw in the guitar for free. I put strings on it, put a 9 volt battery in it for the active pickups, and it seemed to work fine. That’s basically where the story ended until now.
I guess my biggest question is whether or not this is American-made. And I’m curious if the EMG active pickups would have come stock, or if they were installed later. And if this thing is worth anything. I at least know it’s worth more than $40.

I guess it’s a Pacer!
My dad would approve of the Dead bear; I do not. Seems strange for a metal(?) guitar.
“E 1979” Is this a serial number? Was this guitar made in Neptune, NJ or is that just the Kramer HQ?
Whoa! I had never noticed that the tuners said “Made in W. Germany”. Wild.
Any help would be appreciated.
