The Turbulence’s R-36 massive neck provides the extended sonic range which stretches from the low B all the way to the 4th octave of the high E. For increased stability of their ultra flat profile, we decided to build these necks with a 5 piece lamination process of well seasoned quarter-sawn maple and walnut. The Turbulence R-36 is unique instrument which provides their painted necks with a “Composition Display Widow” headstock section. Turbulence’s fingerboard features triple parabolic position markers and two different fret sizes. To achieve better fret spacing in the hyper range, Turbulence R-36 has medium jumbo frets installed from 1-24 and skinny tall from 24 to 36. In order for these instruments to deliver maximum performance in their upper register, the lower body scoop is enlarged and the heel section of the neck is ergonomically sculpted. Both Turbulence R-36 and R-29 guitars endorse the revolutionary Delta Wing ergonomic shape featuring the removable left-leg rest unit. Gary Kramer design team paid special attention to each and every detail of this highly sophisticated instrument.

TURBULENCE series are designed for the extra ordinary players who dare to get challenged. These amazing instruments are living proof that after 35 years, Gary Kramer’s approach to guitar building is still “A Step Ahead.”
