This is an extremely rare and difficult to find 1985 Kramer Baretta Guitar-Art graphic guitar. The art work is the Fantasy Series, Galactic Rainbow. According to VintageKramer.com. "These were introduced in the banana head stock era, so some of these graphics are very rare because you don't see them often on banana head stock Kramers." The artist, Shannon Hall, is internationally recognized and is now the official artist for the John Lennon estate.Learn More
This guitar is in excellent, near MINT condition. The previous owner said this guitar was in storage for 22 years from 1995 to 2017. The guitar is obviously a case queen, just look at the fine tuners on the Floyd and you'll see there's no wear or oxidation on the black finish. It has been professionally setup with 9 gauge guitar strings and plays like a dream.
Condition: The guitar has only very light swirl marks, 1 check (clear coat finish crack) on the back. The checking line runs from the back neck plate to the trem cover plate. You have to hold the guitar in just the right light at just the right angle for it to be visible. You can barely see it. Photos barely capture it. You can feel the head stock scarf joint line, which is common on these guitars. The joint is strong and has lasted 32 years. It has a factory neck shim. This is also very common. There is no rust on the Floyd Rose tremolo or rust on any of the hardware. The frets are like new and in perfect condition. It's a collector's grade instrument. I can not see any noticeable dents, dings, or scratches.
It feels heavy, so we are confident that it is a maple body Baretta. The guitar has a #4 written under the pickup. I do not know what this is in reference to. The Schaller reverse zebra humbucker pickup is dated 1/85. The guitar is an early D serial, #D-2949.
This is an amazing sounding and playing guitar. The original era Kramer hard shell case is included. The case alone is rare, with key locks, and worth a lot of money. I have not seen another Kramer case like this one. We do not have the keys.
Buy it fast before another collector gets their hands on it.
Note: The volume knob is not original.
I love it when different genres merge together and form something unique and cool. This beautiful guitar was inspired by the great Alfred Hitchcock movie, "The Birds". So, film-music and wonderful craftmenship have joined together to create this beautiful instrument. It is a 2009 PRS Limited Edition Bodega Bay model with a Birdseye maple top that looks like the birds flying over Bodega Bay. Poor Tippi Hendren was driven to the brink of a nervous breakdown during the making of "The Birds". She suffered dearly, so the least you can do is buy this guitar. It was owned by a collector. We sold this originally, and the original owner picked it out of three other Bodega Bay models we had just received. This one had the very best top. It is in 100% mint condition. It was never played! You'll never find another in as perfect condition.

Awesomeness. This guitar reeks of awesomeness. I'm not even sure if that's a real word, but you'll understand exactly what I mean after you hold this guitar in your hands. Here we have a 2007 Anderson Hollow Drop. This fine guitar has a gorgeous flamed Koa top on a mahogany body. The neck is rosewood with a rosewood fingerboard. How cool is that? Like all Tom Anderson electric guitars, this Hollow Drop Top is built with the utmost attention to detail, and boutique, hand-made guitar quality, done by master craftsmen. Features that Tom Anderson has long been known for; perfection in every aspect- from the exceptional fretwork and playability, to the tonally versatile electronics setup, and the beautiful wood selection: this Hollow Drop Top has all of it. It has a light shaded edge on the top with binding on the body, and gold hardware. It is in immaculate, near-perfect condition. It has obviously been cared for. It plays fantasticly, and sounds like a million bucks. This is a superlative guitar in every way possible. Comes with original spec sheet, case candy, and hard case.Learn More
One of the first McCarty models signed by Ted McCarty #19 out of 100.
Limited signed PRS McCarty in McCarty Sunburst. The neck is straight as an arrow and the frets are excellent condition. The top looks AMAZING! There are no nicks or dings. Just some slight pickmarks. The same is for the back. Just a light amount of buckle marks. No chips or dings on the headstock or neck. The pickups have been replaced with a Grissom Treble and a Hiland Bass pickup. The original McCarty pickups are included. The original case has been upgraded to an Artist case.Learn More
This is an unusual and rare PRS guitar! This Custom 22 was custom constructed in 1996, so it just slightly predates the Private Stock program. It was ordered in 1995, so it took a year to even get to us. It was ordered with some special features that weren't available as standard options, which you can check out below.
Special ordered Vintage Yellow finish with a Natural Back (the customer wanted Amber because he preferred the Natural back but at that time Amber was only available on an Artist or Dragon model)
Special Ordered Maple Neck
Special Ordered "10" Grade Neck
Highly Figured Abalone Bird Inlays
Wide Thin Neck Profile
Comes with original hardshell case, warranty card, manual and trem bar. The hang tag is missing. It is in mint condition and looks like it was never played. It's a PRS collector's dream guitar!Learn More
