Kramer DMZ 6000

The former owner of this bass is a longtime customer of our store and astute collector. This bass is in very, very good condition for its age.

This 1979 Kramer DMZ 6000 bass is an unabashed rocker. It sounds great played with fingers, but comes alive when played with a pick—bright and aggressive with piano-like clarity and authority. It features a T-style aluminum-neck with walnut inserts (to give it a more organic feel than an all-aluminum neck) and split headstock. The neck is topped with an ebanol fingerboard (manmade compound) with pearl crown inlays.

The body is equally striking, with a solid birdseye maple center and solid, burled walnut wings with German-carved top and belly-contoured back. A maple/walnut/maple trim stripe around the rim gives it even more class.

Passive DiMarzio P/J pickups run through 2 x Volume, 2 x Tone controls and a 3-way selector , plus each pickup has a Series/Parallel switch. The bridge is a Badass top-mount with adjustable saddles. Unfortunately, there’s not a serial number on the bass, but all pots and parts indicate a 1979 birthday.

At 10.4 lbs, it’s actually a bit lighter than most of the aluminum-neck Kramers we’ve seen. Hardshell case (not original) is included, in excellent condition.
