 Kramer Jersey Star History


During 1986, Dennis Berardi, president from the Kramer guitar, contacted with guitar player Richie Sambora of Bon Jovi and requested him if he was ready to enable Kramer to create him a signature Kramer Jersey Star guitar. Sambora quickly agreed, therefore, the RS signature instrument showed up in instrument history. The initial model was made during the early 1987, having a hybrid body of former Kramer's Pacer and their brand new design. On the upper cutaway there's a star-shaped decal, and you'll find a pair of stars on several other Kramer Jersey Star products.




Kramer Jersey Star Specs


3 dual-coil pick-ups: 2 J.B. Seymour Duncan pickups separately in middle and bridge, J.N. pick-up (Sambora said that it was formerly a Dimarzio pickup) in neck. The frame of the pickups is gold colored. 1 volume, one 5-way switch, 2 coil taps.
A separated pointed-head neck, ebony fretboard, star-shaped pearl inlays. 1-11/13' nut width, gold colored hardware and floyd rose, "American" tag followed the "Kramer" trademark, a pearl truss rod cover on the headstock with "RS" upon it. Some Kramer Jersey Star versions possess a star on the tip of the headsock, some have not at all.

Kramer Jersey Star Colors

Kramer Jersey Star colors included in the 1987 guidebook: Black, white, violet, candy blue, candy red, flourescent pink and champagne flip flop white, flip flop red and flip flop blue.


The original Kramer Jersey Star price: $1249


Till 1989, far more possibilities are accessible, such as black floyd and hardware, maple or rosewood fingerboard, and lefty styles.
In late 1989, Kramer Jersey Star started to decline. In this certain time, it turned to work with Fender for some diverse designs several years. In two thousand and two, it quitted from Fender. Gossips stated that it worked in conjunction with Gibson.

Kramer Jersey Star assembled in Japan


Certain Kramer Jersey Star Guitars built in Japan are usually relatively low-cost. There is certainly no Gothoh's marked on the tuners of Japan-made Kramer Jersey Star Guitars. Some don't have any Gotoh logo, some shipped in versions get no string fixer, and some overseas models possess no star on headstock.

2004 - Kramer Jersey Star Reissue by Musicyo-Kramer

In the year 2002, Gibson merged Kramer and enable Kramer Jersey Star go back again. The designs had been gathered together again in order to build a lot of examples as a way to find out which type could be acknowledged by Kramer supporters. Richie's original Sambora had been ultimately picked, with white guitar body, maple fingerboard, crafted by Rod Schoepher. John Monteperto ever got a Richie used original Kramer Jersey Star guitar. After taking his suggestions, they made up one's mind to create an accurate reproduction model. The last result is that the Kramer Jersey Star copy was ideal that a lot of people (including vk) stated this replica was even greater than the original Kramer Jersey Star, including lazer cutting mosaic work, star inlays upon the Kramer Jersey Star guitar body and headstock. This particular model was released in 2004, and had been the sales record keeper soon after Gibson combined Kramer.
This is a clever design. These Kramer Jersey Star guitars are Musicyo's first time developed superior electric guitars which sound much more real, much stronger than the original Kramer Jersey Star guitars.

Sambora’s Comment on Kramer Jersey Star


Dennis Berardi was carrying out incredibly nicely together with Kramer Jersey Star at that point thanks to Eddie Van Halen. We've got to be close friends, and he asked me if I wanted to perform a model, and I said 'Sure'. So I attempted to set something mutually that will produce the dexterity I wanted. It had stars on the fretboard, a Floyd Rose, and DiMarzio pick-ups. I performed them every night, too. A man known as Rod Schoepher, who had also made me a few custom Kramer Jersey Star instruments, would adjust them to my preference once they showed up from the factory, since Kramer's custom store wasn't really up and operating; the entire thought of custom stores wasn't occurring yet.

Contemplating the quote, Kramer created many special Kramer Jersey Star guitars for Richie but did not release to the public. Some related pictures were revealed below, please take pleasure in.

The comments on 87 variations and also the later on 02 model reproductions are different. To satisfy the preferences of all people, we replicated both of the 2 models after learning a lot of data about them. Golden pickups frames, 1 volume, one 5-way switch, 2 coil taps, ebody fretboard, star-shaped pearl inlays, etc, these Kramer Jersey Star specifics are totally consistent with the initial Kramer Jersey Star instrument. We are able to install all the very same components as the genuine Kramer Jersey Star guitar utilised, for example Seymour Duncan pickups, but we strongly recommend you the Wilkinson brand pick-ups regarding its top quality and reasonably priced price. It could save you much cash and the top quality of it is steady and reliable enough!!





Considering that our goods are produced with a modest volume, the cost, when compared with those custom crafted instruments, is more inexpensive, but simultaneously, the supply is limited, therefore should you really want this Kramer Jersey Star, please catch the chance to contact us right away.
