Kramer Nite V FR Electric Guitar

Explore the dark side with a Kramer Nite V. Includes a Floyd Rose tremolo bridge for dramatic dive-bombs and Alnico V pickups for rich, overdrive-ready tone.

Taking its cue from one of the most iconic guitar shapes in the history of rock, and updating it in classic Kramer style, the Night V piles on the evil to embody the dark side of the midnight hour. Working from the cornerstone of a body that is distinctly chopped and contoured, this "updated-V-shaped" creation packs all the tools for gut thumping thrash and metal, with a rock-solid simplicity and a superb playability that put it at the head of the night-prowling pack. A Satin Black finish and "thorn" fingerboard inlays let all comers know that the Nite V is up to no good, and send a stark warning to those afraid of the dark!

What counts most, though, is the solid yet sweet tone that this distinctive guitar belts out, thanks to two genuine Alnico V humbucking pickups and all the bold, ringing resonance that only a full-scale solidbody electric guitar can produce. Naturally the Nite V's fast, comfortable neck yields to your swiftest shred with a licensed Floyd Rose vibrato system for maximum attitude. Venture out at Nite, tune in to the dark side, and get your thrash on!

Like all quality instruments, the Nite V begins with classic ingredients that are capable of producing sweet, resonant tones right from the ground up. The guitar's solid mahogany body provides all the rich resonance and depth that this legendary tonewood is known for, while a bolt-on maple neck and rosewood fingerboard combine for a sharp attack with enhanced warmth and texture. Add them together with the Nite read more V's longer 25-1/2" scale length too, and you're talking maximum ring and resonance from a guitar that's ready for action right out of the box.

On the Nite V FR, a licensed Floyd Rose vibrato tailpiece yields to all the whammy action you can muster, from subtle wobbles to dramatic divebombs, all while keeping the guitar's tuning perfectly locked and loaded like only a "double-locking" system can do. Plugged in, the Nite V's genuine Alnico V humbucking pickups give you everything from wailing lead tones to bone-crushing crunch to throaty blues voices, with authentic single-coil tones available via the tapped neck pickup on a push/pull Tone control. Simple, solid, scorching -- the Nite V and Nite V FR are ready to do all the dirty deeds you might want to perform in the dark.

Ok so here's my review, I've never owned a V before so when I first started playing it something didn't sound right, so I got the strings changed out and it sounds better, however something still wasn't working. It stays in tune great, it feels Uber fast,, the only MAJOR complaint I have with this guitar is the location of the jack and I want to put strap locks on it. The neck bolt has to be changed out in order to put a set of strap locks on it. Other than that I figured out what was wrong. It was me, as I said I've never had a V before so I was uncomfortable playing it. So overall I'd give this a 7 on a 10 scale. Great guitar, looks and plays AMAZING, but they GOTTA change the location of the jack and be able to put locks on without changing the neck bolt. I'm happy with it! I would recommend this if you're a V player!
