The 84 electric guitar by Kramer is an evolution of the Baretta model stripped down with a few different tweaks. This guitar is specifically based on the guitar that Eddie Van Halen endorsed back in the 1980's. Offering up a more round 12" radius fretboard allowing you to play chords easier than the slightly flatter 14" radius seen on something like the Baretta models. That is not to say that this guitar can not get heavy and fast when you need it to though. Kramer have been delivering great quality guitars for the old school style rockers for many years and this guitar is a welcome guitar to the lineup.
Loaded with a Seymour Duncan JB pickup in the bridge this guitar offers a great range of tones especially when you add in the coil tap available from the single volume control. And no Kramer would be complete without the mandatory original Floyd Rose system allowing you to shred the stage with this guitar with ease! This guitar is made for those looking to rock the world with an old school inspired guitar with modern playability in mind.
Here's what Kramer say about the 84 Electric Guitar
Long recognized as a leading manufacturer of high-performance rock weaponry, Kramer has put guitars in the hands of the world's top shredders for three decades. With a nod back to the golden age of high-octane rock guitar, Kramer introduces the 84, an homage to one of the most formative shred-monster axes of all time. Styled in the image of the original Kramer Baretta of 1984 with offset double-cutaway body and droopy "banana" headstock-the guitar played and endorsed for a time by Edward Van Halen-the '84 captures all the power, playability, and attitude of the original, with classic colors and graphics to make it more attention-grabbing than ever. Loaded with a single high-output Seymour Duncan JB humbucker pickup in the bridge position with push/pull series parallel coil tapping and a Floyd Rose "double-locking" vibrato unit, the '84 is finished in your choice of white, banana yellow, Diver Down,solid red, black with red bullseye, or white with black bullseye.
