Vintage 84 Kramer Guitar

It’s hard for me to say this (because I’m 43), but remember the (now) “vintage” 84 Kramer Baretta guitar? The Kramer Baretta was the famed hockey stick neck one pickup, one volume pot Floyd Rose masterpiece played by Eddie Van Halen.

Remember the guitar magazine ads with EVH holding the Baretta like this?

There were actually a whole series of Kramer ads like that, there’s another one with him holding a Kramer Pacer like this:

So you’re probably wondering already why I’m lamenting about Kramer guitars of years gone by? Recently my wife picked me up a Kramer Focus 3000 from 1983-4 at a yard sale for a rediculous price with OHSC and stock pickups and floyd rose (and working coil tap). I’ll blog about that in another post.

What surprised me in a few google searches was the fact that Gibson now owns the Kramer name and has been reissuing various guitars, like the Kramer 84 Baretta, and the Kramer Pacer (among others). I can’t believe they did the reissue with the hockey stick necks (also AWESOME!). Note in the EVH pics above that one with Ed has the hockey stick neck, but the Pacer has the pointy headstock.

Check out this fabulous Kramer 84 Baretta reissue:

Either this thing must be so very new that not everyone has it (yet), because you can’t even get it at Musician’s Friend or Guitar Center. You can find it however at American Musical right now in stock. In fact they even have this new 8 payment plan (that I just used to get mine) so you can get this axe for just $84/mo if you do that deal (and have it to play in just a few days).

*UPDATE*: you can also now get the 84 Kramer Baretta at ZZounds for the same prices with 8 payments as well!!

They also have the Vintage Kramer Pacer dual humbucker model for sale too (in Tiger stripe!):

They also have the Kramer Pacer there too, which comes in a both a cool burst or “Tiger Stripe” version (AWESOME!). I like this Baretta because it has the maple fingerboard, and I prefer that to the rosewood. What version would you get?

You can also still find quite a few Kramer Baretta guitars on ebay now as well:

Used BC Rich Warlock Guitar

Looking for a used BC Rich Warlock Guitar? You couldn’t find a better bargain if you tried!

If you were reading my post the other day, you know that I sold my Agile 3100 and PRS Santana guitars because I bought a 1991 ESP Horizon (which I LOVE!). The ESP is the first guitar I’ve ever owned that had EMG pickups. Now that I own a PODxt Live, the EMG picks are what I want becuase they make the POD sound sooooo much better (IMHO). So, I’ve searching eBay for different types of used guitars that have EMG active pickups (specifically EMG 81/85’s) in them.

But that’s neither hear nor there, what I wanted to tell you was that I realized how much of a bargain the BC Rich Warlock guitar is. It’s astounding. The BC Rich Warlock is kind of known as a 80’s hard rock heavy metal guitar, but they are great to play – and can be used for any style. The thing that got me was how affordable the used ones are. A new BC Rich Warlock NJ with EMG pickups and Floyd Rose can run you $800. But used, you can get one under $300, and sometimes for $200 or less! Can you believe this? I mean, come on, the BC Rich Warlock’s with EMG 81 and EMG 85 pickups for under $200? The pickups ALONE are worth $200, and that’s not even counting the Floyd Rose and rest of the guitar! I saw a few auctions that had a nice condition used Warlock AND the cool “coffin case” under $300. ‘Nuf said – go fine some deals!
