Gary Kramer's New Illusionist Guitar Offers Unique Visual Twist to Custom Line

High-Performance Instruments for Guitarists Who Desire to Be "A Step Ahead"

EL SEGUNDO, CA--(Marketwire - March 4, 2009) - Adding an eye-grabbing standout to its line of US-made custom instruments, Gary Kramer Guitar has introduced the new Illusionist solid body guitar at the 2009 Winter NAMM show. The high-profile launch includes a three-page feature in February issue of Premier Guitar magazine showcasing the Illusionist alongside its Crusader USA series cousins, the Conquest and the Cathedral.

The Illusionist and the other Crusader USA line models incorporate the Gary Kramer legacy while offering guitarists a truly 21st century instrument -- perfectly sculpted for shredding and extreme guitar styles. The timeless appeal invokes the sumptuousness and prestige of Gary Kramer's fine-polished Aluminum-era instruments, while offering boutique aesthetic touches and unparalleled sonic quality.

All Crusader USA models feature Gary Kramer's classic body shape. The Illusionist creates its own unique impact with a meticulously carved "illusion" pickguard gracing its flawless top. Like the other Crusader USA series instruments, the Illusionist includes:

--  All-mahogany body delivering smooth compressed sustain with warm highs
--  Gary Kramer Guitar's patented two-piece recessed Iron Cross neck plate
--  Smooth-oiled 25.5" scale neck made of select hard maple
--  Indian rosewood fretboard with 22 jumbo frets, 43mm wide nut and
    carefully rolled edges offering superb vintage "played in" feel
--  Seymour Duncan JB bridge pickup
--  Gotoh double locking tremolo bridge and tuners

Crusader USA models can be custom built with various neck wood options, hardware configurations, paint jobs, optional binding and some of the finest custom graphics imaginable. Available in strictly limited quantities, Gary Kramer Guitar builds these fine-crafted instruments to personally ordered specifications.

Founded in 2005, Gary Kramer Guitar is the newest venture from industry icon Gary Kramer. Known for his pioneering role with Travis Bean and Kramer guitars in the 1970s and '80s, Kramer's name is synonymous with innovative, high-performance instruments. Now teamed up with designer/luthier Leo Scala, Kramer devotes his knowledge, experience, and passion to creating a new generation of killer guitars for adventurous and discriminating players.
