It has been nearly 40 years since its debut, and the Kramer Baretta continues to turn heads with its retro-cool aesthetic and hard-rocking tone. Most notably wielded by the late-great Eddie Van Halen, the Baretta's single-pickup design and Floyd Rose locking tremolo made it a must-have for shredders needing a stripped-down solution for gigs. The modern Baretta delivers more of the same screaming tone and effortless playability, delivered through a single Seymour Duncan JBTM humbucker and a genuine Floyd Rose. From its maple body to the maple neck and the fingerboard, the Baretta's tonewoods are thoroughly top notch, sturdy and sleek in the hands while adding sonic brightness and tight, beefy lows. Throw on the whammy bar, and you can bend and dive all night in perfect pitch, courtesy of the Floyd Rose's double-locking system. In need of some serious sonic heat? Add the Kramer Baretta to your collection for stellar tone in any setting!
Why do some of the used instruments have a “used” stamp on the back of the headstock?
This step is a long-standing agreement we have had with some of our manufacturing partners taken to protect their interests and to prevent the filing of improper warranty claims. For many consumers, the “used” stamp is recognized as a sign of quality, giving confidence that an instrument originating from MIRC has been properly set-up and refurbished by a professional tech.
