A radical axe with a "treble bleed" mod and a Floyd Rose tremolo.
The Kramer Vanguard electric guitar features a modified offset V-shaped alder body with a unique partial cutaway that gives you access to the 24-fret rosewood fingerboard. The bolt-on maple neck has a thin-taper profile that makes shredding effortless. A recessed double-locking Floyd Rose tremolo system keeps a low profile that won't get in your way and will keep you in tune no matter how aggressively you play. The Kramer Vanguard's electronics include dual humbucking pickups with a master volume, master tone with push/pull coil splitting, and a 3-way selector. Volume features what Kramer calls the "treble bleed" mod, which lets you keep your tone bright when backing down the volume control. Dress up features of this Kramer Vanguard guitar include deep beveled body edges, thorn-shaped fretboard inlays and black hardware.
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 guitars and introduced modern design innovations as well. Kramer players include a who's who of rock guitarists, including Eddie Van Halen, Ritchie Sambora, Mick Mars, Vivian Campbell, and many, many more!
