You have it correct...that's a 1984 Kramer Pacer Deluxe.
I learned how to play guitar back in the 80s on a Kramer Pacer. It's been hidden away for years until the other evening, when I happened upon the site. There are now big fans of Kramer guitars?!? ...and my friends used to pick on my Kramer back in the day.
Anyhow, I believe it is a 1984-late 1985 Kramer Pacer Deluxe - the serial number is right for the period, the neckplate seems right and it has skinny hockeystick headstock. Of course, I may be very wrong.
If anyone has a free couple of minutes and wouldn't mind sharing a little of their expertise, I'd be very grateful for any insights. I'm attaching a few pics as well.
Thanks popvamp! It's pretty straightforward using vintagekramer.com. BTW, nice "little" collection...I like the deluxe in blue.
That should be a heavy as hell body on there too.....Maple.

Let's hope you have friends with better taste now! That is a great looking guitar that far too many folks on here would love to have, including me.
The good and bad thing about Kramers in this day and age is that they aren't the "popular" brand anymore. That makes them easy to pick up pretty cheaply and in some cases they are practically given away cause they don't know what they have.
Thanks to this forum and us middle aged guys that remember those Hair band days fondly, our kids are being raised not to touch daddy's Kramers cause those are special! There will be a whole generation that see the guitars in the same way we do.
...WOW beautiful axe!
AFAIC those are Kramer's best guitars, the early bananas \m/

Welcome to the forum
Thanks for the warm welcomes everyone, and I appreciate the compliments on the DLX! This board is like a Kramer candy store to me. Some amazingly exotic Kramers I never knew existed, plus some really beautiful standards as well! I like the DLX in your avatar Vengeance!
Some of my old Kramer dissenter friends from yesteryear have since come around to appreciate this axe as a classical instrument worthy of keeping and cherishing. Plus, how many things can you buy these days that is made in the USA? The only knock I still will sometimes hear against it comes from people who do not have large hands. That neck is a wide-body and is not easy for smaller hands to navigate comfortably.
Yes ameturk, this hefty guitar builds up your shoulder and back muscles!
