1989 Vintage Kramer Pro Axe Guitar in gloss black.
Extremely hard to find Kramer Pro Axe. These were pretty much the last hurrah for Kramer back in the 80’s and they were super cool guitars. Not a ton of these were produced because Kramer went out of business fairly soon after this guitar came out.
This example is very clean, nothing more than a few signs of light surface play-wear here and there (keep in mind its a black guitar which shows every finger and eyeball print:)
Neck is great, frets show VERY little wear and no issues at all. The body of the guitar as you can see by the pics is exceptional for its age. No big dents or dings or anything like that.
Electronics are original and sound great.
Comes as pictured with a vintage Charvel Tweed case, trem bar and a few odds and ends such as the original sales tag.
If you have been looking for one of these I would grab it ASAP. I am a long time Kramer guy and collector and I have not come across one of these in many years. I doubt I will find another any time soon.
Pro Axe Info:
One of the last production Kramers to come out of the factory was the ProAxe series in 1989. These guitars were designed partly by Ed Heller who was a repair specialist and Kramer luthier since the early 1980s. The ProAxe guitars were developed to carry the new Floyd Rose Pro trem and took on a 7/8 scale mahogany body with a scalloped lower horn, recessed trem cavity, a reverse pointy head with “ProAxe” after the logo, black hardware, Seymour Duncan pickups and a 24 fret ebony fingerboard with pearl markers.
Last was the Standard which sported a Trembucker in the brigde and a reverse tilted single coil Hot Rails in the neck position. Controls were 1 vol, 1 tone, coil tap and 3 way switch.
