    Kramer

    A hardtail guitar loaded with all the components a serious player needs.

    The Kramer Striker 211 electric guitar features a double-cutaway mahogany body with a beautiful flamed maple top. A bolt-on maple neck has a thin-tapered profile that makes playing effortless. A 24-fret maple fingerboard sports thorn-shaped fretboard inlays. The Kramer guitar's chrome hardware includes a string-through hardtail bridge, and Jackson sealed die-cast tuners. A plethora of great tones are generated by an Alnico V humbucking pickup in the bridge position and two single-coil pickups in the Kramer Striker 211's middle and neck positions. Controls include a master volume, master tone, and a 5-way selector. The volume features what Kramer calls a "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 has 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!

    A DUD!!

    By El Guapo

    from New Mexico

    Comments about Kramer Striker 211 Electric Guitar:

    This guitar arrived with a major hump and a warped neck. The neck is beyond a truss rod adjustment. This guitar shouldn't have been shipped with a defective neck. I'm exchanging it for another one. Let's see what the next one looks like. I'm happy for the rest of you that got a good guitar.

      Comments about Kramer Striker 211 Electric Guitar:

      These guitars will easily compare to a Jackson or LTD twice the price. I feel no need to replace the pickups and I was able to achieve the low action I like without an issue. The guitar feels solid, sounds nice, feels great, and looks really nice

        You won't find a better guitar for the price. This thing has a good weight to it. It feels like a expensive guitar. The only downside is you can see a line where the headstock was separate from the neck. This doesn't change anything sound wise but its not easy on the eyes. Other than that I would say you won't find anything better for the price.

        Best Bang for the Buck... Period!

        By Len McFadden III

        from Sandy Eggo

        Comments about Kramer Striker 211 Electric Guitar:

        This is my first Kramer. I love it. Gibson is doing something right with this division. Kudos!
        All features are top notch for an overseas manufactured guitar. Looks great. Sounds great. Plays great. I don't know why more companys don't offer a hardtail in the H-S-S configuration. Not everyone uses or is comfortable using a tremolo. I'm old school and just rely on the old fingers. So you can't dive bomb for that one Van Halen song you do a night.. big deal. Use a processor or pedal for that one..lol. The treble bleed system has its up and downs. If you are use to bumping your volume pot down just a bit to find that sweet spot you will have to change. This one you must go much lower but it does give you more range to play with volume wise which is nice. Volume pedal is no longer on the pedal board. 24 frets takes a bit of getting use to when you are use to 21 or 22. What am I suppose to do with those extra notes?lol...
        I checked my guitar over with a fine tooth comb and there was not a flaw. Clearcoat is deep and shiny. Everything is solid and fits tight. This is one of the few overseas made guitars that I see no need to change out or modify anything. The 10's from the factory were a bit stiff so I changed out to 9.5's. I also releaved the truss a bit and had to lower the action a hair, but the intonation was spot on.. and is still well within range for rock and roll.
        Price point to quality. This guitar is the best out there for the gigging musician on a budget who has not a need for tremolo system and wants an overall great axe to cover all styles.

        BEST GUITAR FOR THE MONEY

        By kerry flowers

        from memphis tenn

        Comments about Kramer Striker 211 Electric Guitar:

        This is a nice guitar for the money. I have played a lot of guitars over the years like Gibson, Epiphone, Fender, Ibanez, BC Rich, Jackson. I have friends that play Fender, or Gibson nothing wrong with that but I have always wanted a Kramer guitar, ever since I saw Eddie Van Halen play one years ago, I give the guitar a 10. Fast neck, sounds good, love the color. I have the purple one.
        It has that big fat sound, when on the bridge pickup, then when you switch it to the mid pickup it has that good blues sound, then on the neck pickup it sounds just like a Fender strat.
        I like the overall feel of the guitar, I been playing les paul for years, but I wanted something different, it has a fast neck so you can get to the those last frets easy, the pickups sounds good I like the maple neck, and the body it not a heavy guitar like a les paul.
        Overall the guitar is worth money, sure you can get a more high cost guitar, but for the price you can't go wrong.
