Red face Gary Kramer Stuff...36 Fret 7 string

Anyone else see this stuff yet? I just caught it in Guitar World today and checked the site out, and was intrigued.

Re: Gary Kramer Stuff...36 Fret 7 string

I saw the 2 guitars in that issue. Kind of a silly way to announce you're back. That V is only slightly less goofy than the Carvin one.

Whatever happened to symmetrical flying V guitars?

I thought it was a flying U...kind of similar to the Roswell Rhoads.

I kind of like them!

With 36 fret, multiple neck, 8 string guitars and so on I think we will be approaching Spinal Tap-esque over kill very soon. Maybe a guitar with no body, just a 57 fret neck and 36 strings

I hear he adjusts the truss rod with 3 strings tuned to pitch and 3 completely removed.

It really doesnt matter if the guitar is high quality if its grotesque...I hear great things about the old kramers though.

Re: Gary Kramer Stuff...36 Fret 7 string

They might play nice and be built well ,but that U shaped monstrosity is just plain ugly. Same for the Roswell ripoff. The Custom and the Crusader look good though.

Rock on!

Nothing new, but cool stuff. The philosophy behind the the guitar is pretty interesting. There's nothing wrong with thinking outside the box. Too bad he didn't make a black superstrat.

for the 7-strings/36 frets, you don't need a pickguard, you can pick directly on the fretboard !

The turbulence is interesting, reminds me of something Tueffel guitars would make. I'd like to try one sometime.

Those are hideous! I want a 200 fret 43 string guitar with no body, just a maple log with frets and pickups in it.
