Post New guitar on the way
Off ebay...

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... :EOAB:UK:6

The description says it's a Kramer Striker... I'm pretty sure it's actually a Kramer Baretta 404 ( http://www.kramerguitars.com.br/baretta404.htm )

If anyone could help me out identifying it, that would be great. :)

Still... It needs a bit of work... But it comes with a hard case (which I need anyway)... For £100 I can't have done too badly...

(if you're wondering... it was my brother that won the auction... not me :wink: )

Tom, I think that it is a Striker. Kramer Baretta's came with only one double coil. That's it......no single, no second double coil.

Looks a lot like Tom's new purchase.

I guess I'm on crack. I had a Barretta in the late 80's, and it only had one humbucker. :? :? :?

This is only 2 years old though :roll:

This is the closest I've been able to find... http://www.kramerguitars.com.br/baretta404.htm

Distinguising features being the reverse headstock and the floyd...

The one Ryan posted is very simaler... but fixed bridge.

The strikers all seem to have bolt on neck's too... so that pretty much rules out that possibility :roll: Could be wrong of course...

I'll let you all know when I get it :)

That guitars neck appears to go seamlessly into the body, probably from end to end with the ears of it attached.

This must mean that the guitar has an extremely low action from what ive experianced with necks like that.

I'd paint that kramer blue and say..."I'M REB BEACH!"

Well... It's arived at my brother's house and it should be with me in a week or two :D

My bro has been kind enough to fix it up for me; so the locking nut is fixed, and it has a new electronics cover :)

I've got some pics my bro took of it... notice the skull and crossbones tuners :lol:
