"This guitar is our favorite rocking guitar. It is an American-made Kramer Pacer. It was special ordered in 1986 from Sam Ash in New York. This guitar has been hot-rodded with special Seymour Duncan pickups--neck is Quarter Pound with tap and staggered poles, middle is Quarter Pound flat poles and the bridge is a super great sounding SH-4 JB humbucker with coil switch. All pickup combos are possible and feature a custom capacitor for improved tone shaping qualities. The bridge is a true Floyd Rose with all its capabilities. The guitar was special ordered with beautiful red metal-flake finish. The maple neck is a duplicate of the Eddie Van Halen specification banana headstock--12"" radius and super jumbo frets. This guitar is a testament to a true American guitar company that out-rocked the big companies during the the 1980s. - Connie and Marco Mendoza"
