The Kramer Baretta Special Electric Guitar is the perfect addition to your hard-rock arsenal at an extremely affordable price. Order yours from Sam Ash Direct today with free shipping and the guaranteed lowest price.

Kramer is the number one name in high-performance guitars for high-performance rockers, and the new Baretta Special has a pedigree like few instruments out there. Styled in the image of the original Kramer Barettas of the early 1980s--one of which was the choice of the legendary Edward Van Halen--the Baretta Special has the distinctive offset double-cutaway body and droopy “hockey” headstock that set the rock world on fire nearly 30 years ago, while providing the power and playability required to do justice to its namesake. With a powerful humbucker pickup, vintage-style vibrato tailpiece, and a stunning Vintage White or Black finish, this entry level shred machine is the perfect introduction to the Kramer world without breaking your wallet.

Looking beneath the first-class hardware and electronics, the Kramer Baretta Special has the right tonewoods to back it all up. Its body is crafted from solid mahogany, a legendary wood for use in electric guitars, known for its outstanding richness and depth. The bolt-on neck is carved from hard Maple with a glued-on Rosewood fingerboard, and is built to the 25 1/2” scale length that many shredders prefer, which offers tight, thumping lows and shimmering harmonics. A fast, slim neck profile, 22 medium-jumbo frets, and a 12" fingerboard radius combine to make the Baretta Special superbly playable.

For no-nonsense rock action, the Kramer Baretta Special carries a single high-output humbucking pickup in the bridge position, routed through a single volume control. This Baretta Special pickup is wound with 42-AWG wire and made with a genuine Alnico V magnet just like the most desirable vintage humbuckers, but it has extra turns of wire for scorching leads and crunching rhythm tones, along with endless singing sustain. A vintage-style vibrato tailpiece provides all the divebombing action you can whip up, while premium die cast tuners with an efficient 14:1 gear ratio help to keep the whole package true to pitch. Case not included.

Comments about Kramer Baretta Special Electric Guitar:

This thing was a big surprise for the money. Heck, if I had paid twice as much for it, I wouldn't be angry. The build quality on this guitar is good, and the neck has a nice thin profile, its easy to play. Mine was setup almost spot-on, just the intonation was off on the 5th and 6th strings by a hair (easily fixed with a bridge like this -- couple screwdriver turns).Lastly, the pick-up was a big surprise. It'll do pinch harmonics pretty much anywhere on the fretboard, and sounds surprisingly "hot". I won't be swapping it out personally. All in all, this guitar is a steal for [$]. If you're looking for a cool 80s style metal guitar, its hard to go wrong here.
