Kramer Pacer Classic FR Special, Purple Passion Metallic GAK Overview
This high-performance double-cut echoes the striking looks, slick playability and searing tone of the original 1982 model.
Pure Shred Machine
The Kramer Pacer Classic FR Special is a modern tribute to the iconic instrument that shook the guitar world back in 1982. Proponents of the Pacer include legendary guitarists such as Joe Satriani, Mick Mars, George Lynch and Satchel of Steel Panther. Like the original, the Kramer Pacer Classic FR Special is a pure shred machine with a high-octane tone, fluid playability and an eye-catching aesthetic. This is a guitar built for speed and power.
At the core of the Kramer Pacer Classic’s ferocious tone is its lightweight Alder body and Maple neck, which delivers a balanced, resonant and defined natural voice. The body is coated in a sleek gloss finish and features ergonomic contours for optimal playing comfort. The neck is carved to a rapid K-Speed SlimTaper C profile, which is primed for technically-demanding styles. The 22 medium-jumbo frets enhance sustain whilst allowing you to dig into your string bends and vibrato for a truly expressive playing experience.
Kramer have equipped the Pacer Classic FR Special with a pair of juicy Alnico 5 Classic humbuckers, which feature double white exposed coils for a rock ‘n’ roll aesthetic and a brighter, more focussed tone. Whether you’re playing pristine clean or with tonnes of distortion, you can count on these pickups to sound warm, clear and punchy. The pickups are selected via a 3-way mini-toggle switch and you can create a blend between the bridge and neck thanks to the individual volume controls.
Genuine Floyd Rose
The Kramer Pacer Classic is outfitted with rock-solid chrome hardware, which looks the part and ensures reliable performance on stage or in the studio. The double-locking Floyd Rose tremolo system keeps you solidly in tune whilst you pull off extreme Van Halen-style dive bombs and squeals.
Pick Your Poison
If you’re a player that wants to execute raucous riffs and lightning-fast leads in style, the Kramer Pacer Classic is worth your attention.
