Bringing the high-octane performance of the 1980s to the fastest-riffing players of the 21st century, Kramer introduces the Pacer Vintage, a guitar equipped to the hilt for tone and performance, with the looks that set an era alight. Flash back to the shred boom of the mid 1980s, and Kramer was the #1 selling electric guitar brand in the world, its fast, powerful designs setting the pace for countless other manufacturers to follow.

Kramer artists of the day included Vivian Campbell, Edward Van Halen, Jeff Golub, Brad Gillis, Neil Schon, Richie Sambora and others-and the Kramer Pacer was the flagship of the range. Patterned after the elegant offset-double-cutaway body and "beak" headstock of the original, and locked and loaded with a pair of premium Seymour Duncan pickups and a Floyd Rose tremolo bridge, the Pacer Vintage is available in your choice of three high-gloss finishes: Honey Burst with chrome hardware, Orange-Yellow Burst with a tiger graphic on the front and black hardware or Pearl White with matching headstock and black hardware. From its solid maple body to its bolt-on hard maple neck with maple fingerboard, the Pacer Vintage loads in a premium tone wood that is known for optimum resonance, clarity and sustain.

It is all crafted into one supremely playable package, too, with a thin-taper elliptical neck profile and 22 medium-jumbo frets on a 'board with a 12" radius for the optimum marriage of comfort and easy bending. Another crucial Kramer read more touch is the 25 1/2" scale length that many shredders prefer, which offers tight, thumping lows and shimmering harmonics. A high-output Seymour Duncan JB humbucking pickup in the bridge position and a more vintage-voiced JN in the neck provide the Pacer Vintage with the optimum firepower and versatility. Both are made with genuine Alnico V magnets and wound with 42-AWG copper wire with a DC resistance reading of over 16K ohms. The result gives you everything from scorching lead tones to massive crunch, but always with plenty of clarity and excellent note definition. The JN in the neck reads a cooler 7.74K ohms for smooth, warm tones with impressive articulation. They are controlled by separate volume pots with a push/pull series/parallel tap and a .002mf cap bleed mod on each for endless tonal possibilities. For unbridled whammy action, just grab on tight to that Floyd Rose tremolo unit-partnered with a locking nut up top for outstanding tuning stability and give it all you've got, for anything from evocative dive bombs to gently warbling tremors. A set of premiums die-cast tuners with efficient 14:1 gear ratio complete the hardware package. Check out the Pacer Vintage today at your authorized Kramer dealer, and dive into the golden era of high-performance shred.

"It’s finally here!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
It’s finally here! Seems like it took forever to get here, been on back order a long time. Arrived in perfect condition and box very well inner box supports the whole guitar not just the neck. Was slightly out of tune, no problem there set up looks pretty much right on! And a sweet very smooth neck, think I’m gonna like this a lot. Before I do any major tweaking, I’m gonna have to let the guitar settle in to its new climate, I’m in Hawaii and the humidity is much higher here. Very happy with the purchase! And have purchased multiple guitars, and bases from zZounds, and probably will continue to do so.
