Don't know much about Kramers but I own a TB1000 Standard, and it's awesome! Best guitar I've ever owned. These days, Beans are super hard to come by, the best place to learn about them is visit TravisBeanGuitars.com for the info.. they have a forum, eBay auctions, etc.

On another post, I mentioned Electrical Guitar Company as an alternative option to the Bean. They're new, they're in production now, and the guy has replicated the Bean tone pretty accurately! I also own one of these (a Standard) and it sounds great.

Normally aluminum neck guitars have a unique tone, which I'm sure you're aware of.. but I think the secret is the pickup position related to the neck. Both Electricals and Beans, the pickups are bolted right on the metal, causing that aggressive reaction with magnets and generating killer mean tone. I don't think the rest do that... I might be wrong. Other aluminum names to look for are Vaccaro and Veleno.

Too bad they've been out of production for some years now...

I kinda wish Grand Central would just take down that site already...I feel like they're spiting me or something.

The X-Ray looks cool, but I hear it was kinda heavy, and I hate heavy guitars...
