The Baretta Special is a great way for new players to discover one of the most influential guitars in rock history at a price anyone can afford! Featuring a powerful Alnico-V "zebra-coil" humbucker with a single volume control and a tone-rich mahogany body, it also has a maple neck and a Kramer Traditional Tremolo bridge.

Baretta Legend
The Kramer Baretta has influenced generations of metal players around the world and belongs in the hall of fame of classic guitars. Now, the Baretta Special gives new players a chance to discover a true Baretta at a great price.

The Baretta Special features a tone-rich mahogany body available in Candy Blue, Purple, and Ruby Red satin finishes. The Slim Profile bolt-on maple neck has a maple fingerboard with black dot inlays with double dots at the 12th fret, a 12" radius, 25.5" scale, and 22 medium jumbo frets. The traditional Kramer headstock (in matching finish) has a truss rod with a 'bullet' cover with Baretta Special in white and the historic Kramer logo.

The 80s are alive and rocking!!!!!


Absolutely love this guitar. The sheer simplicity of one volume knob, beautiful purple finish and matching headstock, fantastic neck and frets. Besides a string change, no work had to be done to get rocking. My only gripe is that the Purple Beretta Special was the only "Special" shown with black hardware in all the pics and it came in with silver hardware (just like all the other colors)



Loving it !


Mine is Ruby Red . Fast action nice and loud . You can't beat the price !



Great guitar!


Workmanship is fantastic, I've had guitars that were ten times the price that had worse fret dress and fit/finish. I want to but another one!

Great guitar!


This is an amazing guitar for the money. I bought this as a practice guitar that I didn't mind leaving in my living room, but I actually find myself reaching for it because I enjoy it. I couldn't believe how well the frets and fretboard edges are dressed. And Sam Ash's service was great.



Fantastic Guitar!! A gem From the 1980's!!


Great Price!! Great Service!! Super Fast Delivery!!

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!!!
