Kramer Summer 2020 Guitars - Summer Gear Slam 2020

The storied shred brand debuts new signature axes for Vivian Campbell, Dave "Snake" Sabo, and Charlie Parra.


Vivian Campbell Nightswan

The Kramer Nightswan was first released in the late 1980s and quickly became a Kramer classic. The new Nightswan features a double cutaway Mahogany body in an Ebony finish with blue polka dots. The bolt-on 3-piece Hard Maple neck has a “C” profile with an Ebony fingerboard, a 24.75" scale, medium jumbo frets, a 16" radius, a Floyd Rose® RS Lock Nut, and pearloid inlays in a unique wave pattern. The traditional Kramer headstock has the original ‘Nightswan’ logo.

Snake Sabo Baretta

Kramer presents the premier signature model from Skid Row's Snake Sabo. Inspired by his favorite road guitar, the Snake Sabo Baretta features a replica graphic commissioned by Sabo and created by legendary Kramer artist Dennis Kline. The Snake Sabo Baretta features a new Kramer 85-TTM Double Black Open Coil HumbuckerTM that was designed by GibsonTM USA Luthier Jim DeCola, a K-Speed SlimTaperTM neck with jumbo frets, a Floyd Rose® 1000 bridge system, an EVH® D- Tuna® Drop D Tuning System, and comes with a gig bag. Sabo said in a recent interview with Guitar World, "The attention to detail and adherence to the legacy is profound. I’ve never had a signature guitar, so to say I’m humbled would be an understatement. When I put the Snake guitar away 25 years ago, I never thought it would be resurrected, much less through a Kramer partnership! I’m so proud and grateful to be a part of this and the history this represents. I hope it brings the same amount of joy to guitarists out there as it does to me.” Kramer stands behind every guitar they make with a Limited Lifetime Warranty and Gibson BrandsTM Customer Service.
