The Kramer Pacer is the quintessential Kramer, shred guitar. It's super versatile and simply built for high-gain tones and speed thanks to the slim neck profile.
The Pacer has two volume controls for each pickup which means you can go from clean output using the neck pickup to higher output lead tones on your bridge pickup with ease. Having the floyd rose on-board also means you can divebomb until your hearts content! Having a floyd means you'll love the locking nut which keeps your guitar in tune no matter how much you bend and divebomb
The neck and fretboard are both made of Maple which will give your tone a bit more spank and cut through the mix whilst the big frets and slim neck mean that you can play those fast phrases with ease. And the big frets make bending a breeze!
Here's what Kramer say about the Pacer Classic
During the shred boom of the mid- 1980s, Kramer was the #1 selling electric guitar brand in the world, and its fast, powerful designs set the pace for countless other makers to follow. Endorsements from no less than Vivian Campbell, Edward Van Halen, Jeff Golub, Brad Gillis, Neil Schon, and Richie Sambora proved that the company was hitting the mark for top-flight professionals. And at the center of it all, the Kramer Pacer was the cornerstone model.
Now, the Kramer Pacer Classic embodies the original model from 1983 in a new, contemporary shred machine for the hardest rocking, fastest riffing players out there in the 21st century.
The current Pacer Classic features a Mahogany body and a Maple neck with Maple fretboard; a volume control for each pickup; master tone control; three-way mini toggle pickup selector switch; 25.5" scale length; and black hardware. It's available in Black, White or Red, and as Steel Panther's Satchel told Gibson.com recently, "I’ve got a white Kramer Pacer, and that just goes with every outfit. That’ll go with my purple spandex, my zebra spandex, everything. And I’ve got a lot of spandex, so it’s good to have a versatile guitar that’ll go with your spandex."
