A rockin' guitar with a radical V design, thorn inlays, satin black finish, and classic Kramer "pointy" headstock.
The Kramer NiteV electric guitar boasts a modified V-style mahogany body in a satin black finish. The NiteV guitar's bolt-on maple neck's thin taper makes playing effortless. A 24-fret rosewood fingerboard sports thorn-shaped fretboard inlays.
Electronics include dual Alnico V humbucking pickups with a master volume, master tone with push/pull coil-splitting, and a 3-way selector. The Kramer NiteV guitar's volume includes a what Kramer calls the "treble bleed" mod, which keeps your tone bright when backing down the volume control.
In the mid-1970s, when Kramer Guitars began, they were exclusively producing aluminum-necked guitars. In 1982, Kramer cemented an exclusive distribution deal with Floyd Rose. Kramer guitars were also loaded with additional features like Schaller tuners and Seymour Duncan pickups. With the endorsement of Eddie Van Halen, Kramer became the world's best selling guitar in the mid-'80s.
The Gibson Guitar Company bought the revered Kramer brand and has reissued many of the historic Kramer models and introduced modern design innovations as well. Kramer players include a who's who of rock guitarists with the likes of Eddie Van Halen, Ritchie Sambora, Mick Mars, & Vivian Campbell among them!

Comments about Kramer NiteV Electric Guitar:
Outstanding. The feel of the instrument is incredible. Gibson did good with these new kramers and once the brand picks up some momentum i can see them coming back into the scene easily. The main reason i really took to this guitar was just looking over all the similar guitars with the same features for the price this one stands out not only with looks but the quality and the feel/tone it provides. I was looking towards all brands ESP Schecter Epiphone Fender and ended up with this axe. It beats the rest. I will confidentally say that. I personally hate how every model of guitar has EMG's and an ebony fretboard/mahogany body combo. Come on people lets get real here people want something different.
An extremely comfortable and fast playing guitar. The neck profile feels incredibly smooth and fast. Its very easy to get around and feels increasingly natural. The modified V style body not only feels comfortable playing standing up or sitting down but it also looks great. The satin finish is smooth (though requires a little more cleaning care). The guitars stock pickups sound great and are a staple on alot of the epiphone models. The coil tap adds a little bit more in the tonal dynamic of the instrument and the overall weight of the guitar is balanced and solidly built. The fretboard is very dark (says rosewood but almost looked like ebony) and the inlays add a little flare to the guitar.
The guitar was set up almost perfectly right out of the box. Very little fret buzz and the action was near perfect. Tuned it up and the stock strings sounded good. Quality from the first strum. i had figured that it would be compareable with some of the other epiphone models i played and the quality is similar but the playability is a lot better. The only real problem i had was some very minor buzz (barely noticeable) and whoever had set up the guitar had left a string sitting on one of the saddles out of the groove (which with a one finger push popped right in)
for what you get the dollar price on this axe is not bad at all. It easily plays better than instruments twice its price and has the added tone to boot. Eventually most players will want to swap the P-ups out but for the time being the stock pickups deliver. No complaints with the instrument whatsoever. If your looking for something that plays well and wont break the bank see if you can get your hands on one. In terms of the playability alone this instrument is worth every penny.
