Since 1976, Kramer guitars have been the #1 choice of the most demanding musicians in hard rock and metal. First founded in Neptune, New Jersey, Kramer is recognized around the world for modernizing electric guitar and bass design, creating instruments that were louder, faster, affordable, and more reliable—not to mention more colorful—than anything on the market!
Almost overnight, Kramer made the classic designs of rock and roll seem behind the times. Kramer guitars were the first to feature designer pickups by DiMarzio® and Seymour Duncan® in vivid colors and unique headstock designs, and built with seldom-used tonewoods like Walnut and Koa. Kramer was also the first to feature the now-classic Floyd Rose® tremolo system that allowed the world’s fastest and most demanding players to push the boundaries of the electric guitar further than anyone since Mr. Les Paul himself.
Today as part Gibson Brands, Kramer is once again poised to inspire a new generation of players who are building on the first generation of Kramer legends like Eddie Van Halen, Vivian Campbell, Mick Mars, and Richie Sambora. We’re Kramer—The Legend Lives On.
