This 1987 Kramer Baretta is in excellent condition. Cosmetically it shows some light play wear throughout including some faint pick scratches and few very tiny, pin head sized dings on the body. Overall, this guitar is very clean and appears to have been well cared for by its previous owner. The neck profile on this guitar is that of a slim, fast profile with very nice feeling shoulders. The neck is super comfortable and fun to play! The frets are in excellent condition and hardly show any signs of play wear. There are no indentations and they have a lifetime of use left. This Kramer has just been professionally set up and it plays outstanding up and down the fingerboard with low action and great intonation. The original Seymour Duncan JB pickup absolutely screams in this guitar and will deliver classic, quintessential, heavy rock tones. Through a “high gain” amplifier this thing is right at home and through a Marshall amplifier it is quite capable of some really righteous classic rock and rhythm and blues tones. This is really just a super fun guitar to play. These instruments were manufactured by the ESP guitar company during this period and then assembled and set up at Kramer. If you are after a Baretta, this one is a fantastic example to consider.
