Richie Sambora Of Bon Jovi Built Kramer Rod Schoepfer Custom Guitar
Listen: My words. You WILL Not find a Better Playing Never Ever Ever Ever Ever.... EVER Goes out of Tune. This was made in 1990 for Richie, Back when Bon Jovi was on TOP OF THE WORLD. ALL His Guitar's are the Best. That simple. This Axe is PART OF HISTORY. All 3 pickups are 20-22k Strong. Fancy Neck to Body design. Zero, you hear me Zero Movement. It goes together like the NASA Space Shuttle parts. Perfect.. Precise! I believe the body is a 1 piece, Alder... Neck measures 20.04mm @ 1st Fret...22.17mm @ 12th Fret. Trem Bar is As Thick as I Ever Seen! 1990 Pot Dates...No Bull this Axe is a MACHINE! You play in a band and jump All over like a Nut Cake. Play them Hair Day's Great Hits. This is YOUR SOUL MATE.. My Words..:)
How often you get THE SAME Guitar built for a Famous VERY Good Pro Player, that was to be used on stage, on tour...for thousands of people in your life time? The Guitar is a 10 out of 10 in everything. Tone, Quality, Tone, ease of Play.. and YES I Love PINK!
It is set up with Richie's S/S/H configuration with EMG pick ups and active mid range boost, 5 way switch, Kahler 2700 Tremelo, Schaller Tuners
Rod Schoepfer Custom Built Kramer
Rod was a luthier in NJ who built guitars for many NJ/NY musicians such as Richie Sambora of Jon Bon Jovi, Skid Row, Blue Oyster Cult and even Les Paul. He built and worked on all of Richie Sambora�s guitars from before he was in Bon Jovi ,and while In Bon Jovi through to the the early 90�s. This one was built to present some new ideas to Richie but Richie never accepted it as he and Rod had a falling out shortly thereafter
So this is LAST Guitar Built for Richie but he never got. Collector Owned, Never Played.... RARE Opportunity... 80's made... Go Google these 2 names. ALL Kinds of Info on Ron being the main man, responsible for building TONE Rockets, on all that music we grew up on!
It�s a cool/unique guitar with Richie�s specs at the time - a Kramer/ Schoepfer neck, neck lock (something that Richie and Rod developed to keep Richie�s necks from going out), EMG active pickups and a Kahler trem.
Since it was the 80�s, and Rod did a lot of off and pastel colors, it�s a pinkish/peach color (more pinkish) with black hardware/pickups and mini shallers with pearl buttons (a Richie standard on all his guitars along with the neck lock and other stuff.) Because Rod built Richie custom guitars and was also the one who built Richie�s Kramers in the 80�s, Rod had access to Kramer�s inventory, necks, etc. so that�s why this one has a Kramer claw neck with Rod�s �Schoepfer� logo applied.
I'm not done with pictures etc. Real Quick, this was Collector Owned, so really unplayed 99% Mint. It will BLOW YOU Away, and NEVER EVER Go out of Tune.. Like Never!. Has 10-46 strings on it, and never played a easier perfect playing guitar ever... IN MY Life...
Rod also made or customized guitars for Skid Row and Vivian Campbell ( guitarist for Thin Lizzy, Def Leppard, White Snake and Dio)
Think on this.. The Better Than The Best.. Pro's had the "BEST"
