The Kramer Pariah electric guitar features an aggressively styled double-cutaway alder body with beveled edges. A bolt-on maple neck has a thin-tapered profile that makes playing effortless. A 22-fret rosewood fingerboard sports thorn-shaped fretboard inlays. Chrome hardware includes a string-through-body hardtail bridge and die-cast tuners. Electronics on the Kramer Pariah guitar include dual Alnico V humbucking pickups with a master volume, master tone with push/pull coil-splitting for additional single-coil sounds, and a 3-way selector. The Volume features what Kramer calls the "treble bleed" mod, which lets you keep your guitar tone bright when backing down the volume control.
In the mid-1970s, when Kramer Guitars began, they were exclusively producing aluminum necked guitars. In 1982, Kramer cemented an exclusive distribution deal with Floyd Rose. Kramer guitars were also loaded with additional features like Schaller tuners and Seymour Duncan pickups. With the endorsement of Eddie Van Halen, Kramer became the world's best selling guitar in the mid-80s. The Gibson Guitar Company has bought the revered Kramer brand and has reissued many of the historic Kramer models and introduced modern design innovations as well. Kramer players include a who's who of rock guitarists with the likes of Eddie Van Halen, Ritchie Sambora, Mick Mars, & Vivian Campbell among them!

Comments about Kramer Pariah Electric Guitar:
My first impression online was that it looked like a cheap flashy guitar, then I decided to take closer look because of the price. I found myself falling in love with the overall aesthetic, and decided to give it a shot. Upon receiving it I inspected it closely and found many small nuances in the finish around almost every hole in the back (neck bolt holes & String holes). nothing major, just nit picky stuff. The neck & headstock are three pieces of wood instead of the normal two. The normal neck and head piece glued together that you'd find on any guitar of this style, and a third little chunk of wood that makes up the bottom left "point" of the headstock. Little stuff like that makes me nervous of the overall quality. Other than that, it plays really well, and the pickups really don't sound bad for the price. Hardware is mediocre at best, and I will likely replace everything if I decide to keep it. Definitely an decent guitar if you have a low budget or are a new player, but nothing to get excited about if you have experience with higher end guitars.
