Body and Finish
Any great tone machine starts with the wood, and Kramer's Striker 211 and Striker 211 Custom are no exception. The guitars' bodies are made from the most classic tonewood combination for electric guitars: the back is carved from solid mahogany, and is capped with a highly figured flame maple top for a supremely elegant look. Together, these woods also present the best-of-both-worlds tonal splendor of mahogany's depth and richness and maple's bite and definition. A solid maple neck with maple fingerboard adds to the cutting power, all achieved with the optimum clarity and ringing harmonics that can only be achieved on 25-1/2" scale guitars like these. And of course, this sleek, fast wood is cut to Kramer's legendary slim, wide profile for optimum speed, while all 24 of its medium-jumbo frets are an easy reach thanks to the Striker 211's deep double-cutaway design.
