The Kramer SM1 is a modern take on Kramer's classic double cutaway 'Superstrat' design. Featuring a flexible pickup configuration, neck-through construction and a rock solid Floyd Rose trem system, the SM1 is one of the most versatile guitars Kramer have ever produced.
Featuring a mahogany body and neck, the SM1 has a tone unlike many of its peers - rich in sustain and low-end power, it offers a warmth and resonance rarely found in other 'S' type guitars.
The SM1 features neck-though construction instead of the more traditional bolt-on design. This gives the guitar not only huge amounts of sustain, but also great access to the top end of the neck via a smooth, sculpted heel. The neck itself, also mahogany, features a Slim Taper profile and has a smooth finish giving an extremely comfy feel. The neck is capped with an Ebony fretboard featuring a flat 14" radius - perfect for fast runs and choke-free string bending. The fretboard is fitted with 24 medium jumbo frets and inlaid with Kramer Mini Headstock position markers and a Kramer logo at the 12th fret.
Powering the SM1 are a trio of Seymour Duncan pickups - a pair of Cool Rails in the neck and middle positions and a mighty Seymour Duncan JB in the Bridge position. Together, these pickups give the SM1 access to just about any guitar tone you need - from choppy neck/ mid rhythm tones to full on, aggressive shredding, the SM1 does it all.
The pickups are controlled via a master volume and master tone control, a 5 way selector switch and a mini switch that splits the bridge humbucker down to a single coil.
Hardware comprises a double locking trem system. In the case of the SM1, this comes courtesy of a Floyd Rose 1000 series tremolo and locking nut. A set of Kramer Black Chrome machine heads add to the classic look whilst anchoring the strings to the headstock.
All the hardware features a black Chrome finish.
Perfect for all styles of rock and metal playing, the Kramer SM1 takes Kramer's 80s roots and brings them bang up to date with the SM1.
