    Product Description

    The Kramer SM1 Electric Guitar has a sleek Mahogany neck through body for unsurpassed sustain and resonance. The comfortable 25.5 inch scale and 24 fret playground topped with an Ebony fingerboard will help cut through the mix when needed. The SM1’s recessed Floyd Rose provides solid reliability for the most aggressive dives and pulls.

    The pickups are controlled by 1 volume, 1 tone and a 5-way position selector, but that's not all. The Kramer SM1 guitar features a unique push/pull switch on the volume control that will engage the bridge pickup in any of the 5-way's positions. Combine this and the mini-toggle coil tap switch and a world of tones are at your fingertips with the SM1!

    What is your opinion of this product?
    Mahogany neck thru body EMG pickups and a real Floyd, what could go wrong? Well for starters it needed $100 worth of fret work and due to the neck radius vs the floyd radius the action can only be so low. The finish is decent but the could have filled the body joint a bit better so it isn't so noticeable. No instructions or owners manual of any kind came with my guitar. Not sure if that's standard or if AMS forgot to include it. With all the switching this guitar does that would be nice to have. That's the bad. The good, the guitar sounds awesome. Lots of tonal capabilities. The neck is a bit chunky but nice. Overall had I played it in the music store I would have passed at the current asking price. Now after having the fret work done I'm stuck with it. Should include some sort of case for the money.

    What is your opinion of this product?
    I give this guitar a solid 4/5 on looks, fit/finish, and overall feel. After resetting the Floyd Rose to my string gauge and blocking it (dive only) I am most satisfied with the playability. The EMG set has a variety of sounds, through the mini-switch and the push-pull pot, I find that the best sound is from the bridge EMG 81TW, in humbucker mode.

    What is your opinion of this product?
    I am very happy with the guitar. I had been looking for a quality "super-strat" style guitar to play hard rock and fusion. I took a chance with this guitar and was pleasantly surprised. This is one of the best guitars I have ever played! Considering how good it is, it's worth the money! I am also glad that Kramer is back making great guitars!

    Welcome back Kramer - I love this Guitar
    What is your opinion of this product?
    Had a Kramer Voyager years ago in the 80's, and regretfully sold it in the 90's. One of the best guitars I ever owned. So, found out "by accident" that Kramer (Gibson) was making guitars again, so I HAD to try one. This guitar (SM-1 EMG's) is one of the best guitars I have owned. Build quality is excellent on the SM-1. Similar to my older Kramer Voyager, this guitar just is always in tune. Only occasionally need to make minute adjustments with the Floyd Fine tuners. I do use the Floyd regularly too. I am always amazed when I fire up the tuner just to check it before a show, and it's in tune. I have owned MANY guitars over the years, and the SM-1 I can tell you is a RARE find. The EMG Pickup's are very versatile. It has become my main guitar now. Gibson would be wise to concentrate more on Higher End Kramers for the future. The SM-1 is at the top of the line up in terms of price/features, so I cannot speak for the quality of the rest of the lineup, but this guitar is Awesome!
