Kammerer Scorpius Thinline Electric Guitar, Cherry

Brand:

Instrument Categories: , ,

The Kammerer Scorpius was Jon Kammerer’s original guitar design. Here built with a carved Cherry body and Maple neck with Ebony fingerboard, these are well made instruments.

Jon Kammerer has been building for over twenty years although he is not a household name. Aside from his innovative custom guitar work, his shop is also built to manufacture components, such as necks, for other builders.

This Kammerer Scorpius is in very nice shape, and plays well. It uses a chambered, carved top and back Cherry body paired with a Maple neck and Ebony fingerboard bearing Abalone position markers. For hardware, Schaller tuners are inlaid (!) to the headstock, and at the other end there’s a hard-tail, strat type bridge. A pair of rear-mounted Seymour Duncan pickups pass through a three way pickup switch, and master volume and tone.

The original Gator molded hard shell case is included.

Here is Jon Kammerer on the Kammerer Scorpius:

“Believe it or not, the Scorpius is very close in profile to a Fender Strat (TM). I include a nice Gator case with the Scorpius, but if you want to upgrade down the road, any of the custom Strat (TM) cases should fit your Scorpius. That’s where the similarities stop.

The Scorpius comes standard with a book matched neck, 25 inch scale length, and all premium components and hardware. You have multiple options available, most for no extra cost on every aspect of this guitar.
Over the years, I’ve made hundreds of these guitars, and they usually go one of two ways, a cherry chambered body, pictured to the left, or a solid maple body, pictured to the right. The chambered cherry has awesome resonance and good sustain, great for blues and rock, the hard maple sustains for days, making it great for jazz and hard rock.”
