Used by Lee: 1990

  • 1990 -- EADGBE (Mildred Pierce)


  • SY performed "Mildred Pierce" twice in August 1990, for footage to be used in the music video. Since the song was in standard tuning, Lee just borrowed a guitar from the opening band, STP. One night he played this Kramer Striker, the other night he played a Duo Sonic. The Duo Sonic could potentially be his (though I've never seen him use it anywhere else), but this Kramer was almost certainly borrowed.
  • I'm not positive it's a Striker, if any Kramer experts want to chime in, please do...
  • White wood body?
  • Single coil in neck, mid pu hollowed, humbucker in bridge
  • Rosewood fretboard
  • 1 knob
  • Played by Lee in "Macbeth" and "Mildred Pierce" videos
