Kramer Baretta 1985 Reissue - some questions
Posted 07 September 2010 - 01:15 PM
As i understand, 1985 Reissue is handcrafted in U.S.A.? Why it's price is so small (about 900-1200$)? For example, Jackson Dinky's price is about 1800$.
And how many guitars were maid?
I am not sure on the exact amount made. The 85's went for $1299 new w/ a hardhsell case. It was a fair price on a great guitar. I think you're paying $500 extra on a Jackson with similar features, because they like to think their USA stuff is extra special..IMHO.

even the charvel by jackson 1986 model 6 smokes todays models in play feel and tone.
look at the fender telecaster way over priced for any model or feature. tin bridge parts chrome plated. need i say more.
the re issue rettas are decent guitars if you get to a shop who understands you and your playing likes and dislikes and can set it up for you perfect. i have stripped down a few retta reissues and what i found underneath was layered maple in like 1/8 to 1/4 sheets glued together. once you get the plastic poly coating off the truth comes out.
i use them for 5150 and 1984 conversions.
jump on the reissue at 400 to 600 bucks even the 1984 a good pot pick up and a proper set up for your playing style and if you hang onto it 20 years from now it will have value.
