Kramer Baretta "Hot Rod", Blue Sparkle With Flames Overview

The Kramer Baretta is an agile shred machine - and a certified '80s icon. If lightning fast leads, chunky rhythms and elegant riffs are a key part of your style, the Kramer Baretta is guaranteed to make you grin. Everything about this guitar has been chosen to make it a streamlined, high-performance instrument with a commanding tone that can cut through a dense mix with ease. Plug the Baretta into a crunchy amp and prepare to have your head blown off.

Classic Combo

Kramer have constructed this Baretta using a classic Alder body and Maple neck combination. The Alder body provides a balanced, versatile core sound with a slight upper-mid emphasis that works well with high-gain tones. Alder also has the advantage of having lighter weight than other tonewoods, allowing you to pull off eccentric Glam Rock stage moves with ease. The rock-solid Maple neck and fretboard cater for the snappiness and promote note definition. The neck is what makes the Baretta so effortless to play, featuring a rapid Kramer Thin profile, 22 Jumbo frets, a super flat 12.6" radius and a smooth Satin finish. Like Eddie Van Halen’s “custom shark” Ibanez Destroyer, the Kramer Baretta sports a striking banana headstock.

Hot Rodded Tone

Electrifying the Baretta’s natural voice is the punchy Seymour Duncan JB Humbucker, which oozes tonnes of sustain and is slightly slanted for a brighter tone. The JB is a renowned pickup that boasts a hot-rodded output, making it the perfect pickup for hitting the front-end of an amp or drive pedal. Tonally, the SD JB features potent harmonics, detailed highs and a vocal-like quality when used for lead tones.

Instant Rock

The single Volume knob is positioned for quick access, is knurled for easier grip and can be used to tame the gain on-the-fly. The knob also has a secret weapon - a push/pull switch that allows you to switch from Series to Parallel wiring. This presents an additional tone that can be instantly reached for when you want to mix things up.

Solid Hardware

Like any quality shred-ready guitar, this Kramer Baretta is equipped with a double-locking tremolo. This isn’t any run-of-the-mill tremolo bridge, this is a premium Floyd Rose 1000 series tremolo with an R2 1000 series locking nut and LRT-L40 Trem Stop. With this bridge at your disposal, you can pull off expressive vibrato, extreme pitch bends and wild dive-bombs and go right back to stable tuning. Rounding out the Baretta’s impressive hardware are the mini die-cast tuners.

In addition to a top-notch electric guitar, you also receive a sturdy gig bag that can be used to safely store and transport your Baretta to a rehearsal, gig or performance session.

Pick Your Poison

A highlight of this Kramer Baretta is its eye-catching Blue Sparkle With Flames finish - also known as the “Hot Rod”. These graphics were designed by Kramer Custom Graphic Artist Chris Stemmer and give this guitar a standout aesthetic.

The Baretta also comes with other exciting finishes and unique graphics, including Warning Tape on White Red (“Danger Zone”), Rainbow Leopard (“Feral Cat”), Snakeskin Green Blue Fade (“Viper”) and Candy Blue (“White Lotus”). The 84 model is available as an alternative and features an otherworldly Bo Pittman-designed 3D Black White Swirl finish (“The Illusionist”).

If you’re in the market for a high performance shredder with an attention-grabbing look and a juicy tone, we highly recommend picking up and playing this Kramer Baretta.
