One of the most, if not THE most sought after Kramer, the Baretta is probably one of the most underated guitars that influenced rock history. The Baretta was introduced sometime in 1983 when Kramer wanted an Edde Van Halen signature model. Edward had made many homemade guitars before endorsing a Kramer, and his influence when making those guitars governed the look of what would be the Baretta. It should also be noted that, down the line in the history of all electric guitars, Edward Van Halen's influence is vastly misunderstood and unknown to the industry. Without the Baretta, Floyd Rose, Banana or "Hockey Stick" headstock, slanted pickup (which later led to F-spacing in pickups), and many of the other innovations that Kramer and Edward came up with, the industry as WE KNOW IT would not exist today. -

  • Observations: This guitar shows signs of normal use. Pick scratches can be seen on the body top, slight buckle rash on the back, also a couple of slight dents on the back also. There is a small area about the size of a dime on the body top just left of the bass strings where there is a slight paint bubble, which isn't showing up in the photos. Excellent condition for a vintage guitar. The serial number points to 1984 or 1985, but the headstock shape and angle seems to point to 1985.
