Kramer Pacer Vintage, Pearl White
This bad boy is a shred classic and it's not surprising that it changed rock forever. Now, you can take on the iconic Kramer Pacer Vintage to see why it's such a legend. And with the quality features that come with it - it won't take you long. A maple body with an offset double-cutaway gives you access to the higher frets while the maple fretboard with medium jumbo frets takes care of your playability. And it's not a shredding guitar without a Floyd Rose. So Kramer have paired this one with an R2 locking nut to make sure your intonation stays tight. Divebomb your way to shred city.
If that's not enough? Don't fear. There are also a set of Seymour Duncan humbuckers to pickup your searing hot tones. This combination of JB and JN pickups at the bridge and neck gives you a tight low end and a steamy high end that's kept shimmering at the hands of a treble-bleed mod. It's hard to think of something that this guitar doesn't have. All these exceptional features make for one fun and diverse axe that celebrates the iconic rock of the 80s.
The guitar that started it all
It was gifted to us in 1982. And thank the rock Gods it was. After bursting onto the shred scene, it wasn't long before the Kramer Pacer was impacting the guitar world, and it was this shift that changed the way we see rock forever. It inspired a generation in the 80s. And now this Kramer Pacer Vintage is a tribute that's here to inspire a new one... You. If you're up to the challenge then the insane features packed into this guitar will help you on your way. They treated us once and now they've done it again. Kramer just keep on giving.
A tremolo to make your crowd tremble
It's essential for any serious rock guitarist. How else could you incorporate such daring dive bombs into your playing? Thankfully, Kramer know what's required for an exhilarating performance. With the Floyd Rose 1000 bridge and an R2 locking nut, you have the freedom of creativity right at your fingertips because this locking tremolo system lets you perform the most audacious of vibrato effects. And your strings will go back to perfect tuning. So you'll know that you still sound great even after your insane whammy bar antics.
So much more than just pickups...
Super hot. It's the only way to describe these pickups. The duo of Seymour Duncan J humbuckers in the neck and bridge bring you a goldmine of tonal options. They chime with clarity when you're using clean settings, and roar with saturation when you crank the gain. And this versatility continues even further. The bridge pickup offers a super tight, crunchy voicing, with a strong midrange and treble response while the neck pickup is warm and smooth, helping those lead lines to flow into each other. You'll fall in love with the punch and articulation of these exceptional humbuckers.
But the magic doesn't end there. Kramer have not only included a tone and volume control with push/pull series/parallel tap for each pickup, but they've also added even more. A treble bleed cap mod. This means you can maintain crystal clear and sparkling highs even when you lower your volume. All these options add up to giving you ultimate control over your pickups. It's the power to make your own sound.
Do you believe in maple magic?
It's simply the best. The one and only. There's nothing else quite like a maple neck. When it's in your hands you just know it's the best wood for the job. It's sweet, sleek and smooth. Giving you everything you need for smooth fret transitions, comfortable grip, and a beautiful, bright resonance, it really does make a difference to your performance. You'll be able to express yourself cleanly and with complete accuracy while your licks glimmer with character. What more could you want from a neck?
For it to be topped with a fretboard that's just as good of course. Don't worry, Kramer have your back there. There's also a pristine maple fretboard to go with the neck. Bright and beautiful, it delivers the ideal playing experience. Your fingers will be in paradise when they feel just how smooth, fast, and comfortable this tool truly is. You'll be able to improvise at will. And because the body, neck and fretboard are all made from maple, your sustain will be like nothing you've heard before. It's a maple machine.
