Overview by GAK

This is the second signature model by Charlie Parra, great for metal guitarists who want an iconic look and a killer sound. It features a Mahogany body with the striking Vanguard shape, a 3-piece maple neck with a comfortable Slim C profile topped with a durable 24-fret ebony fretboard. It also has a Graph Tech nut, a LockTone Tune-O-Matic bridge and stop bar tailpiece, which combined provides great tuning stability

For pickups, it has an EMG 66 at the neck, delivering a warm, smooth mid-range and expansive lows, and an EMG 57 at the bridge, providing a PAF quality as well as definition and presence. The 3-way toggle switch makes it easy to find your sound…

To complete the Kramer Charlie Parra Vanguard are dot inlays with a unique Day of the Dead owl inlay at the 12th fret, Charlie Parra’s signature on the truss road cover, a recessed output jack on the upper horn, chrome hardware, a satin aluminium pickguard and a bold Candy Apple Red finish.
