Kramer Assault 220FR Electric Guitar

Sporting a pair of high-output Alnico V humbuckers and a Floyd Rose, the Kramer Assault 220FR is a great choice for those looking for an affordable shredder.

High-octane shred axes traditionally tend toward the offset-double-cutaway body designs, or updates on the classic V and Explorer shapes, but plenty of players would love to put the timeless singlecut rock weapon through the high-speed, high-gain paces. Enter Kramer's Assault 220FR, designed with the classic maple-mahogany tonewood combination and single-cutaway styling made famous by Gibson's Les Paul way back in 1952, but updated with a sharper body horn, glued-in mahogany neck, and shred-certified 25-1/2" scale length. They are thinner and lighter than most single cutaways.

These guitars are loaded with firepower with a pair of high-output Alnico V humbucking pickups, and finished off with contemporary high-performance hardware. And, on the Assault 220FR, there's a Licensed Floyd Rose vibrato with locking tuning system for all your deep-divebombing action. For speed, lead, crunch and chunk as well as all your sweeter, mellower moments the impressively versatile Assault 220 and 220FR are the only weapons that plenty of rockers will need.

Was very impressed with the quality of this guitar out-of-the-box! The only setup I had to do was lower the action on the tremolo bridge. I have not changed the strings yet I am playing the ones that came with it and they are in good shape. I would recommend putting a good set of strings on any guitar when bought new as there is no telling how long they have been on there and the quality of the strings seem to be very low of course which is standard industry practice. The guitar plays so well and is so comfortable and solid no fretwork was necessary whatsoever the action is as low as you could possibly get without getting any kind of interference when you play clean and all notes are very recognizably clean and the report is good! I have not seen any guitar or played one like this ever before. The neck has a classical feel to it for it is wide but yet very comfortable for a small hand. I'm thinking of buying another one to have them both because they are so amazingly good I can use the second as a backup and eventually change out the pickups for different sounds from each guitar. The dive bombing action is great and does stay in tune which amazed me considering it is a Kramer stamped Floyd rose brand tremelo not the 1000 Floyd rose standard. I can honestly say this is my favorite guitar I have ever experience so far up to par with the Gibson Les Paul in the feel and quality in my honest opinion. I did not expect to get this at this price point I suggest grab me one or two of read more these before they're not available anymore! Guitarist Singer/Songwriter 53 years
