If you were a shredder in the early 1980s, the Kramer Baretta was your dream guitar (thanks to a young guitarist with a penchant for Frankensteining homemade guitars). The Baretta Vintage encapsulates everything that was bodacious about that double-cutaway classic and catapults it into the 21st century. This made-for-high-performance axe features all-maple construction, so it exhibits a bright sound with long sustain and enough bite to penetrate a busy mix of drums, bass, guitars, and even a synth or two. Its ruler-flat 14″-radius fingerboard ensures lightning-fast playability. Plug into your favorite high-gain stack, and you’ll be greeted by classic hot-rodded humbucker tones, courtesy of a slanted Seymour Duncan JB bridge pickup. No guitar would be shred-worthy without a double-locking tremolo, and the Baretta Vintage includes the gold standard — a Floyd Rose. The Baretta Vintage features rock-solid die-cast tuners and an eye-grabbing matching banana-style headstock.
Boasting a classic 1980s design, the Baretta Vintage is a stripped-down, high-performance shred machine. Its maple body exhibits a mega-bright sound with super-long sustain and truckloads of mix-penetrating bite. Its hard-rock maple neck features a lightning-fast 14″-radius fingerboard with a 25.5″ scale and 22 medium-jumbo frets. The Baretta Vintage sports a matching banana-style headstock.
Kramer’s Baretta Vintage was built for hard rock. And it rocks hard, thanks to its slanted zebra-colored Seymour Duncan JB humbucker. This pickup is one of the most popular in the world, serving up the classic sound of a hot-rodded humbucker. You know, that sound — the one we’ve all loved for the last 30 years. This scorcher boasts plenty of output without sacrificing tone, and it adds harmonics, sustain, and the perfect amount of distortion to your playing. The Baretta Vintage includes a single knurled volume knob. Plus, the volume pot is push/pull, giving you more sonic variety.
