In the 1970's, a legion of hard rock virtuosos inspired a generation to pick up a guitar and write their own page in rock'n'roll history. When this happened, the world also saw a revolution in up and coming guitar companies who took it upon themselves to challenge the leading manufacturers. One of the first successful brands to do so went by the name of Kramer; and thanks to their groundbreaking ideas and innovative designs, Kramer was soon being endorsed by some of the greatest rock guitarists on the planet. Over the past 30 years and counting, Kramer has been blowing the minds of heavy metal masters with cutting edge guitars, specifically designed to be firm, vigorous and full of bite. From Tom Morello to Joe Satriani, Kramer guitars are now a world-leading manufacturer themselves, and given their incredible range of high quality models for both beginners and experienced professionals, it's really no wonder why.
For a true Kramer classic, any shredder would get a charge out of the Kramer Pacer. Based on the famed 1983 USA Pacer, this guitar played a huge role in making Kramer a household name. From the body to the electronics, everything about this guitar stays faithful to the original, which was famed for its playability and versatility. Another astounding model in the Kramer catalog is the Kramer NiteV electric guitar. Boasting a modified V-style mahogany body in a stain black finish, this axe includes dual Alnico V humbucking picks with a master volume, a master tone, and a 3-way selector. The Kramer NiteV also contains what they call the "treble bleed" mod, which allows you to keep your tone bright even after backing down on volume.
Metal guitarists are meticulous about tone and playability. In fact, Kramer came into existence for that very reason. When Eddie Van Halen needed something a little extra to make his skills soar, it was Kramer guitars who gave him the push. From custom features to specialty pickups and hardware, Kramer has truly earned their place in music as a top manufacture in hard rock and heavy metal guitars.
