Back in 2020, as part of its Original Collection, Kramer – then-newly revitalized by Gibson – unveiled the Pacer Vintage, a $759 take on the original Kramer Pacer that was, notably, available in a loud Orange Tiger finish.
Now, the company has added another Pacer model to its Original Collection, the more affordable Pacer Classic.
Built with an alder body, the no-frills, shred-friendly Pacer Classic features a 25.5″ scale maple neck with a Kramer K-Speed SlimTaper C profile and 22 medium jumbo frets.
Sounds on the guitar come by way of a pair of double white Alnico 5 Classic humbuckers, controlled by two volume knobs, a master tone knob, and a three-way mini-toggle switch.
Elsewhere, the guitar is outfitted with chrome hardware, die cast tuning machines and a licensed Floyd Rose tremolo bridge and R2 locking nut.
The pricier Pacer Vintage, in comparison, features Seymour Duncan JB and JN humbuckers, rather than the Alnico 5s found here, and a proper Floyd Rose 1000 Series trem unit.
The Kramer Pacer Classic guitar is available now – in relatively subdued (by Kramer standards) Purple Passion Metallic, Scarlet Red Metallic and Radio Blue Metallic finishes – for $379. Left-handed versions of the model are also available.
