The Kramer Assault 220 electric guitar features a single-cutaway mahogany body with a set mahogany neck that has a thin-tapered profile that makes playing effortless. A 24-fret rosewood fingerboard sports thorn-shaped position inlays. A licensed Floyd Rose vibrato is onboard for plenty of performance-enhancing fun. Electronics 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 on the Kramer Assault 220 guitar features what Kramer calls the "treble bleed" mod that lets you keep your 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!
