NEWS: Gary Kramer Turbulence models. Awesome.

So I’m sitting here cruising the internets and having a good ol’ daydream about guitars, guitars and more guitars (jeez, what’s new, huh?) and finding myself ever so drawn to these twisted-looking Gary Kramer Turbulence models (yes, THAT Gary Kramer – he has a new company now).

The R-36 is cool enough, with its 36 frets, 7 strings and striking yellow finish (or the black version in the pick above), but check out this killer DNA model pictured below – Dimarzio Evolution pickup, plus a Vai-style DNA swirl finish by the legendary Herc Fede, who painted my custom Ibanez (which I still haven’t got around to finishing).

Of course, if the R-36 is too much for ya, remove a string, add a pickup and reduce the fret count to ‘only’ 29 and you have the R-29, which also looks pretty cool in its own wacky way. These are pretty out-there guitars so you’d probably need a thick skin to protect you from traditionalists, but I think there’s something kinda cool about standing up on stage saying “Yeah, I’m playing metal on a giant luminous banana, big whoop, wanna fight about it?”

So has anyone played any of these new Gary Kramer guitars?

  1. howdy,

    i own 3 gk guitars: black F-1, red turbulence t and red simulator t. all of them are amazing in there own way. best thing about those guitars is that they are extremely ergonomic. once you try one of these goodies all the “strat” shaped guitars seem so…ridiculous! =)

  2. I have the Simulator T, and happen to thik it’s one of the finest guitars made. In 30 years, you will see it in books, along side of the Tele, Strat, and Paul, as a brilliant example of great design!
