Barretta special


Good little beater guitar.great guitar for a beginner





I bought one of these like 3 years ago and was surprised how nice it was. Like a fool, Sold it. Wish I hadn't ,So ordered another one and hoped it was as nice as the last. Lucky for me, This one is just as nice if not having a better sounding pickup. Frets dressed nice and smooth. Neck feels just right.Not a paint blemish found anywhere( And I checked it in the sunlight outside). If your a newbie wanting a comfortable playing solid guitar that will last, Or an experienced player looking to relive some Hair Metal glory,This could be your baby. I have owned a ton of different guitars in my 10 years of playing, Expensive to Reasonably cheap and this axe is one of my favorites. So glad I got another Vintage White one and may just buy the Black color next. Well worth the $$$$ and then some!!!

Awesome guitar for the money.

Probably the most underrated guitar on the market!


This thing is a blast from the past! In a day where single humbucker super starts are an endangered species, this thing rises to the top. Unbelievable quality in a guitar under $200? Insane! This thing easily rivals guitars more than twice the cost. With a couple mods, it rivals 600 + dollar guitars. Anyone who slams the Gibson owned Kramers, has likely never picked one up! Go get one, you'll be glad you did!

Awesome Guitar for Beginners or Professional. A Guitar that you can just pick up when you feel inspired. When you don't want to break out the Big Guns and set everything up. I highly Recommend This Guitar and Sam Ash for getting it to me in Record time. Awesome Customer Service and Great Communication. All Around 5 Star Rating on this Little Bad Boy.

Can't be beaten for the money


I was buying this as a project guitar for the body and neck, I figured I would be ripping everything out of it. Nope! I was shocked, the guitar has amazing authentic Alnico V tone. High output pickups, great sustain which surprised me because the trem block is that zinc Korean small block stuff. But I decided to leave the guitar as is because it does what I want it to. I should add I own 100+ guitars some worth thousands and while this isn't a $1,400 Baretta with locking Floyd it is a great buy for the money. This easily could sell for $300. I did have to take sharp fret ends off one side of the fret board and did level 2 frets but what do you expect for $180. I should add I bought two of these, one black and one white elsewhere and the white one had no issues at all, no sharp fret ends and no fret issues. My suggestion would be if you buy one and it isn't what it should be send it back and ask for another until you get one that plays right. I'm a guitar luthier so fixing 95% of issues really isn't much ado about much. If you want great out of the box spend more than $500, anything less and there more than likely will be issues with frets or what have you which is why I was so happy with the white one I purchased and the black one needed a little tweaking. Overall you can't go wrong with these. Buy with confidence, Sam Ash has a great team of people to make returns easy and like stated you will more than likely be very happy here with these.
