NGD-More Kramer Kontent!

AKA: Pace yourself because bad jokes are the best jokes.

READ ME FIRST: in the beginning, I had a 1989 Kramer Striker, she was BEAUTIFUL. Sounded amazing, felt great in my hands, had curves in all the right places. It was too good to be true. Then one day, it happened. I had a locking cable and stepped on it while moving and it ripped out a large chunk of wood around the input jack, too large for a plate to be used even. So I figured "What do you do when a girl gets worn out? GO FOR THE YOUNGER SISTER!" and as soon as I had enough paychecks saved up, this was on its way.



Box! Because teasing is pleasing.











(I missed Floyds after playing nothing but a Les Paul, and Explorer, and a Tele for month or two)


(looks good from behind too, eh?)

Review: OHMY****INGGODTHISISAMAZING. I needed a Floyd to do my hair metal (and just generally Floyd-wankery). Maple body (fancy top!), Seymour Duncan JB/JN pickups, 2 volumes (wired backwards, top is for bridge, bottom is for neck, which I love because I use the bridge a lot more), master tone, coil tap for series AND parallel, and the classic Kramer treble bleed mod. The neck is amazing, I've been loving maple necks. The body isn't as funny shaped as the pictures may lead you to believe, the mini-toggle 3 way is my preference over the large Les Paul-style, orignal Floyd so it stays in tune GREAT and arrived set up near perfectly how I want it (low action, perfect intonation, but it had 10s in standard, I prefer 9s in Eb, but I can live until it needs restringing). What else can I say? Beautiful guitar. If anyone wants more info or pics, go ahead and ask!

I'm rather jealous of you right now, I've been wanting one of those for a while now.

Looking forward to a full review!

I'm honestly not sure what else to say about its amazingness.

Happy NGD!!

Nicest NGD I have seen in quite a while on UG. Sweet 2 piece body, a beauty from the front and back.

IMO the volume pots are wired the correct way, it's always better to have the bridge vol on top. I can't stand guitars wired the other way around.

Thanks, dude! I love it so much. I am in love with it.

Also, I checked the demo/teaser (it says it's unmixed and stuff) in your sig. It's bitchin'.

I've seen several Steel Panther posts here...and...in reading that, I was definitely getting the Panther vibe from your wording, which is suitable(are you the studio bassist they hire to do Lexxi's parts? ) and amusing! Gorgeous guitar man, bitchin' indeed. HNGD!

EDIT:How's the JN sound, by the way? I saw it on the spec sheets and I was like "What's a JN?".
