The Kramer Pariah electric guitar features an aggressively styled double-cutaway alder body with beveled edges. A bolt-on maple neck has a thin-tapered profile that makes playing effortless. A 22-fret rosewood fingerboard sports thorn-shaped fretboard inlays. Chrome hardware includes a string-through-body hardtail bridge and die-cast tuners. Electronics on the Kramer Pariah guitar include dual Alnico V humbucking pickups with a master volume, master tone with push/pull coil-splitting for additional single-coil sounds, and a 3-way selector. The Volume features what Kramer calls the "treble bleed" mod, which lets you keep your guitar tone bright when backing down the volume control.
In the mid-1970s, when Kramer Guitars began, they were exclusively producing aluminum necked guitars. In 1982, Kramer cemented an exclusive distribution deal with Floyd Rose. Kramer guitars were also loaded with additional features like Schaller tuners and Seymour Duncan pickups. With the endorsement of Eddie Van Halen, Kramer became the world's best selling guitar in the mid-80s. The Gibson Guitar Company has bought the revered Kramer brand and has reissued many of the historic Kramer models and introduced modern design innovations as well. Kramer players include a who's who of rock guitarists with the likes of Eddie Van Halen, Ritchie Sambora, Mick Mars, & Vivian Campbell among them!
