Discover the Kramer SM-1, a masterfully crafted electric guitar inspired by the revered '80s SM-1 and Stagemaster Mach II. This top-tier instrument preserves the original model's neck-through design, ebony fingerboard, and Floyd Rose 1000 series tremolo, but boasts several upgrades that make it perfect for modern musicians. Check it out today if you've been searching for a sleek guitar with a versatile sound and an incredible feel!

The Kramer SM-1 is a tonal chameleon that can adapt to any musical style or setting, courtesy of its powerful electronics. The JB bridge pickup delivers that classic hot-rodded humbucker sound - it's mean, bold, and punchy. Meanwhile, the Seymour Duncan Cool Rails pickups in the neck and middle positions produce a rich array of clear, full-bodied tones. But that's not all this axe has to offer - the master volume pot has a treble bleed mod, and the mini toggle switch engages split-coil tones for maximum versatility.

Key Features:
-Maximum Steel finish gives the SM-1 a stark, menacing aesthetic
-Floyd Rose 1000 Series tremolo allows for deep divebombs and massive bends
-Kramer K-Speed SlimTaper "C"-shaped neck and ebony fingerboard play with a lightning-fast feel
-24 jumbo frets for a full two-octave range per string

The Kramer SM-1 combines classic design elements with cutting-edge electronics, making it the ultimate choice for rock and metal guitarists seeking a high-performance tone machine. Elevate your playing today with this absolute powerhouse of a guitar!
