Alnico V pickups give you bold, aggressive tone

Kramer equipped the SC 211 with a trio of Alnico V pickups to give you aggressive tone that hits your amplifier with plenty of strength. Pickups with Alnico V magnets are known to have an aggressive, punchy sound that's perfect for high-octane rock and metal. So no matter what amplifier or modeler you plug into, the Kramer SC 211 is primed to rock. The humbucker/single/single configuration gives you killer lead tones and classic, glassy single-coil tones.

Floyd Rose tremolo gives you expressiveness and tuning stability

Shredding and wild whammy bar antics go hand in hand, so Kramer gave the SC 211 a smooth licensed Floyd Rose tremolo bridge so you can squeal and divebomb all night long. And because it's got a locking nut, you'll maintain your tuning stability even when you're rocking your SC 211 as hard as you can.

Kramer: rocking hard since the '80s

Kramer guitars were at the forefront of the '80s metal scene, with endorsements from pros like Eddie Van Halen, Neil Schon, Richie Sambora and others. Kramer guitars like this SC 211 have been the guitar of choice for some of the hardest rocking guitarists in the world.

I originally wanted a guitar with a Floyd Rose after beginning to play classic and modern Glam Metal. I fell in love with the striker for the looks, but its got a great sound and personality as well. a little on the brighter side but tuned e-flat it sounds amazing. Bridge is a little finicky and ive had a ton of trouble with the screws keeping the wammy bar in place. if your wondering if u want it get it. The neck is amazing and its the best guitar ive ever owned. That being said I do have plans of upgrading the bridge to an actual Floyd not a licensed Floyd removing the single coils because they are useless for Glam Metal( but good for Hendrix) and upgrading the humbucker. I might buy another! It is cheaper on other sites but Sweetwater's set up and inspection is very useful for player unfamiliar with Floyd Rose guitars. Its got Looks that Kill

this guitar is really nice for the plays really well and Sweetwater did a nice setup on it..low action. it is the second guitar I've gotten from them. Always good to deal with.

Kramer Striker 211 Custom

Bought this guitar because I love and miss the 80's, the large Kramer script across the headstock takes me back in time. I was not expecting much from this guitar for under $400 besides the nostalgia vibe but after I set it up to my liking and plugged in < I love it... Great sustain, great play-ability, neck is thick enough to add tone and sustain but thin enough to shred. Pickups sound great and full with lots of definition and harmonics, body shape is the best I've played on in years... It needs a german floyd rose which mine is fixin to get, they are not going to put that in there for the 379 price tag.. Price for what you get is just crazy.... Rock, metal, blues, country this will do it all.. Check it out you will love it!!!!

I was blown away, right away by this instrument. Serious sustain. I'm no shredder, however, the maple neck & fret board allow for quick passages. A great price for a fantastic guitar.

Good guitar for the price:

I bought this guitar because I wanted the sound, feel and playability of a "superstrat", and after cross shopping a lot of other options from Charvel, Ibanez, Washburn, ESP, etc..., I settled on this because it had the features I was looking for at a price that was comfortable to me. First the negatives: there were some nasty-sharp fret ends on the treble side of the neck, but a little work with a very fine file, AND a few days in my music room have sorted that out nicely. That's it, that's the only negative I have.When I plugged in and tuned it, I was amazed to find out that it was tuned to E-standard and totally playable right out of the box. THANKS SWEETWATER. However, I tune a half-step flat, so I got my first lesson in Floyd Rose adjustment right then. To my amazement, everything I'd heard about FR tremolo systems being difficult to adjust or set up is at the very least, overblown. You'll need a cross-tip (Phillips head) screwdriver and the Allen wrenches that come with the guitar to adjust it. That's it. So, tuned to Eb and everything tightened down, I dug into playing this thing.The nut is wide, the fretboard is WIDE and FLAT. It has a thin, but not Ibanez Wizard-thin neck with flattened D-shaped profile that makes it feel like you're fretting on a basketball court. You've got a lot of room for technical stuff. Everything seems solidly built, but I've only had it a week, so time will tell. The bridge pickup SCREAMS, but has an organic quality that kind of hints at the fact that they're Alnico V magnets, not ceramics. The neck and middle are okay for cleaner, lower gain stuff, and they're actually pretty articulate at lower volumes, likely due to the treble bleed circuit that maintains the higher frequencies when rolling off the volume. With a clean amp, this is a pretty thin sounding guitar, compared to my LP, Strat, and Tele, for example.This thing is meant to be played into a high-gain amp, and for those sounds; 80s Hair Metal and such, it'd be hard to beat this guitar at this price. It's not a very versatile guitar, but it does its one trick exceptionally well.If it hadn't been for those nasty fret ends, it would have gotten at least another star.
