I have decided on this, so what year did the go bankrupt? I know I need a pre-bankrupcy one, and I also want to kno what kind I should get. I will be getting a 80's one with,hopefully, emg 81/85 combo.

They went bankrupt in 1991. Get a baretta, definetly.

The best guitar I've ever had. I-pickup, though.

And please - dont rape it with an EMG. It has a Seymour Duncan JB stock/.

Hi,
I have been pickin' up some Arabic radio signal things. Every time I turn up my Amp, this crazy Imam starts messing up my chords.

I like to have more than one, cuz that does not look promising. And wat kind of sound would a JB give? Obiviously i want harimetal/classic rock.

And what do you think I play? Coilsplit the sucker and it's all you need for any tones - from classic rock to metal.

Really, the baretta was first intended as an EVH sig guitar.

so one pickup could give me awesome hairmetal tones and decent distortion for hardcore stuff? Also, a coil split is?

A coilsplit is using just one of the humbuckers coils, so it pretty much works like a single coil.

I was amazed to find I could get a strat tone out of my baretta. really, this is an example of a guitar in which one pickup is all you need.

God no. An EMG is pure tone-rape.

A guitart is the buzzword Kramer used for the graphics their custon shop put on guitars.

You'll be lucky to find a guitart one, they tend to be rare nowadays.

I have a post-bankrupt Kramer Pacer modeled after Tom Morellos "Arm the Homeless" guitar with EMG 85/81's. I got it for $115 and it's no gibson, but you really get a bang for your buck. It is a lot like an Ibanez sound and "playability" wise. and If you get a kramer with a floating bridge, get a locking nut! One of the only problems I have had is that it would come out of tune every 5 songs. Other than that, I really recommend this guitar!
#29
well, what othe one should I get for a good metal tone, and leave the JB for the lighter stuff. Or should I replace the JB as well?

i'm pretty sure Daron from SOAD used seymour duncans actually, back when he used ibanez guitars anyway!

really your best bet is to go out and try some guitars with different pickups installed and see what you prefer

sadly its not an american one, but it OWNS.
and i mean OWNS.
if you want to know how it sounds, check the song ive got on my pro on this site


the neck is unfinished maple, so it feels really sort of light and fast.
its also not too thin.
the trem is a dive only one which means it can use the d-tuna
it also looks immense, quilted blue!
