Kramer “Danger Zone” Baretta

Kramer “Feral Cat” Baretta

The “Feral Cat” Beretta may look like Satchell from Steel Panther has been at it with his eye shadow, but is actually a Chris Stemmer design that harkens back to the original Kramer Leopard. It has the same hardware and pickup selection as above, with a zebra-coil humbucker.

RRP – USD 999

Kramer “Hot Rod” Baretta

A classic design, the Kramer “Hot Rod” Baretta is all flames and looks right at home in this collection of ’80s inspired single-humbucker shredders. The same specifications as before and, possibly, the best design of the batch?

RRP – USD 999

Kramer “Viper” Baretta

This snake inspired design by Chris Stemmer is quite subtle for a shredder with ’80s aspirations. But if you are at one with your inner serpent, it could be perfect for you. Again, same specifications as the rest, and oh so snakey!

RRP – USD 999

Kramer “White Lotus” Baretta

Last, but not least, is the subtle Kramer “White Lotus” Baretta, which is relatively understated for this lineup. Eric Caspers took his inspiration from an ’80s movie called Underdogs to create this design, which features a lotus flower, and represents “purity, enlightenment, regeneration, and rebirth.”

RRP – USD 999

    More accurately the title should read “Kramer fails miserably in trying to channel the ‘So Bad It’s Good’ school of graphic arts design with it’s new Custom Graphics Collection”.

  2. Ugo says:

    I just wonder who’s buying these guitars these days… the 80s were just magical years, but they are far gone…

    If there’s no “BAD MEDICINE” written on the back I ain’t buyin’!
