OK, it's the 11th November 2011, that is 11/11/11, and as such today has been designated Nigel Tufnel Day. To celebrate this day of Maximum Elevenness, we here at Guitarz - for this day only - will be posting an unprecedented ELEVEN blog posts! So, keep tuned throughout the day for eleven weird and wonderful guitars!
Kramer Nightswan is considered the Holy Grail. Quite why, it's hard for a non-Kramer collector to tell, but I'm told that these guitars are amazing players. On first impressions it's just another Superstrat, but you'll notice that the two humbuckers have a treble bias being positioned in the middle and at the bridge. The lower cutaway is also extended so that access to the top frets on the 24-fret neck is unhindered. Also in its favour is that it is a genuine Made in the USA guitar, and hasn't just been thrown together in the Far East.
It is what it is. A no-nonsense guitar built to widdle.
This particular example is located in France and is currently listed on eBay with a Buy It Now price of €1690.
