The Baretta Special is a brilliantly affordable, single pickup shred machine!
It's got the super-fast maple neck, smooth Rosewood fingerboard and a single humbucking pickup to keep things simple. The single bridge humbucker is a super hot Alnico V humbucker which will give you a fat, snarling guitar tone when plugged into a high gain amp.
All you need is one volume control and a single pickup! It's got one setting and that is 'shred'. The trem system also gives you the ability to warble your notes until your hearts content!
Here's what Kramer says about the Baretta Special:
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, a tone-rich Mahogany body, Maple neck, and a Kramer Traditional Tremolo. Available in Candy Blue and Ruby Red.
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 and Ruby Red satin finishes. The Slim Profile bolt-on Maple neck has a Rosewood 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.
Powerful Alnico-V Zebra Humbucker
Like the original Baretta, the Baretta Special is powered by an Alnico V open-coil “zebra” humbucker with a single volume control with a traditional Top-Hat knob with white numbers. The Alnico-V humbucker offers powerful volume and crunch as well as superb articulation for solos.
