1980s Classic Retooled for the 21st Century
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.

Seymour Duncan® JB™ Humbuckers with Coil-Splitting

The Nightswan is powered by two Seymour Duncan® “JB”™ Humbuckers in the middle and bridge position, one of the few guitars anywhere to feature that configuration. First introduced in 1974, the “JB”™ is still built by hand at the factory in Santa Barbara, California and features Alnico 5 magnets for an incredibly sensitive pickup that gives players power and articulation at high volume. The “JB”™ humbuckers are controlled by a single master volume knob with a three-way mini toggle switch.

Floyd Rose® Hardware

The Nightswan features a Floyd Rose® 1000 Series Tremolo along with an R2 Lock Nut and Kramer Deluxe machine heads for rock-solid tuning and intonation. For easy adjustments, two hex wrenches are fastened to the back of the headstock. A hard case is available through Authorized Kramer Dealers.
