Taking its cue from one of the most iconic guitar shapes in the history of rock, and updating it in classic Kramer style, the NiteV Plus Charlie Parra piles on the evil to embody the dark side of the midnight hour.
Designed in conjunction with Peru guitar hero Charlie Parra, this gnarly instrument comes loaded with dual active EMG pickups, a satin Maple neck, Gotoh tuners and a striking Candy Apple Red finish.
Body & Neck
The NiteV Plus has a solid Mahogany body with the classic Kramer profile. The Satin Maple neck has a 12” radius, an ultra-smooth Ebony fingerboard with 22 jumbo frets, and the classic Kramer 25.5” scale. On Charlie’s request, the Ebony fingerboard includes Day of the Dead Owl inlays as well as a pro quality bone nut.
Hardware & Electronics
Kramer’s NiteV Plus Charlie Parra is powered by the legendary combo of EMG “57” and “66” active humbuckers with Alnico V magnets. The EMG 57 bridge pickup is designed with steel pole pieces for that elusive late 50s humbucker tone. And since EMG pickups are active, solos have extra headroom and punch. The EMG 66 neck pickup also features Alnico V magnets but with ceramic pole pieces for better clarity in the upper registers. Both the “57” and “66” have steel caps—an EMG exclusive.
The NiteV Plus-Charlie Parra features a recessed Tune-o-matic bridge for tight and reliable intonation and cutting tone. It also features GotohTM tuners for smooth, responsive tuning. Controls include a classic 3-way toggle and single Volume and Tone pots that control both pickups.
