I have a 1987 Baretta I with a custom Spider Guitart, how about that? It's my main guitar, and, suprisingly enough, is great for any genre of music, from metal to blues...

It's modded, it has a coilsplit/kill/full switch for the bucker and a neck SC with a respective switch.

EDIT:

By the way, believe it or not, I bought it for not much more than 270$. I got it off a guy who wasnt completely aware of what he was selling. He did not know how much the guitar was worth, he did not know how old it was, he did not know the brand. And, he did not know, that it's the only one here, in Poland.

Come on where are all the Kramer fans at? Too many Ibanez fanboys on these threads

Someone asked for more Kramer pictures so here you go....

Here's my baby, '86 Kramer Focus 1000 with a Seymour Duncan Custom Shop '78 pickup


...and I've always loved EVH's Frankie with a Kramer beak neck the most.

Oh man putting stickers on it is stuff you should get shot for
Check Craigslist or EBay there are always some good deals flying about. I got mine off CL, got lucky. The guy didn't really know what he had and sold it cheap

Ohhh, I've never seen this thread before...

Here are some old pics of my 1983 Kramer Pacer Special. I love this thing. Great tone and amazing build quality. It could use a nice setup, but it still plays pretty well. Nowadays I have a Seymour Duncan SH10 in it. I'm in the midst of getting some updated pics with a full "rap sheet" to go with them.

Update!! I just put an SD-EVH pickup (the one you had to call the seymour duncan custom shop to get) in the bridge of my guitar. I traded it to my teacher for the old sh-11. Man, this pickup rips. Its just so.... mean sounding. If you could get your hands on one (I'm very lucky I did) GET IT. IT SOUNDS AWESOME

I've got a 1980's Kramer Paul Dean signature in flip-flop blue - love it! Must get some pics of it though...

Would love to get a 1984 Baretta with the maple neck, but they're hard to find, especially in Ireland!

Yea the Custom Shop '78 model was balls man. Everyone here raves about the Bareknuckles and so on, I don't think they even come close. The '78 is in a league of its own, my favorite pickup by far.

Thats not a bad price. I bought mine for $240. The guy initially wanted only $200 for it and supposed to have one guy come look at it ahead of me so I told him I'll give him $250 for it and pick it up next day. He didn't have change so I saved $10 The Focus line is really underrated, no way in hell could I get an ESP made, made in Japan guitar with an OFR for that little and almost mint. I recently purchased an '83 Pacer Special and awaiting its arrival in the mail hopefully tomorrow or Tuesday...and in one piece!

Wow those are some really nice Kramers , I got a Focus 6000 ,floyd rose , mahogany neck ,seymore duncans and I love it , Its my main guitar I use , like it better then my Washburn DD70 that i just got . Bought it brand new back oh wow way back in 1988-89 something like that and have played it hard ever since . dont have any pics of it but its like a transparent blue . Great sound in Drop D . Looking to get a EVH Dtuna , to make it even more versitile . Anyone got one of those and do they really work. I mean do they keep it in tune switching back and forth like that ?
