IMO it's worth it if you don't mind that it's nothing like a "real" Kramer bare the logo - the neck shape and also the tone is quite different (but ok). That price sounds fair to me if the pups are upgraded. Should be a good player and better investment than any Focus from a player's POV, again IMO.

IMO yes, the two Yo's I had were just fine. I only disliked the finish, but you can remove it from the neck if you don't like it.

There is a lefty red one on eBay auction now for $175. I was going to point that out to you. I think they are definitely worth that price. I did not love the neck profile on the one my friend had, as mentioned it is not like a “real” Kramer Baretta, but you may like it. The neck was pretty thin from what I remember.

I just actually looked back at the one on eBay, was going to send you the link, but didn’t realize that they changed out the Trem for a crappy righty knock off floyd, changed out cheap tuners, pickups are Epiphone and the paint was all dinged up.
Sounds like the one you found is a much better deal. I would grab it. Worst case you don’t like it, I think you can sell it and get most if not all of your money back.

Found a mint red one,with everything factory new,with dimarzio pups and ive got a black 80's flyod to put on it,i always wanted a neck thru,and i like 16' radius or basiclly ibanez wizard neck with the wanna be banana headstock,gonna strip down the back of the neck and leave the top eddie styled at the headstock.

Thinkin about stripin the kramer logo and just repaint in gloss black,and i really lime the dials low on the body,always hit my strummi hand on l my vintage kramers.

Anyeays for the price of 275 shipped to my house and upgraded pups,think its a good deal,just gotta feel the necl to know whether ill dig it or not.

Its the music yo beretta with 2 hums 2 dials 1 3 way and no drop d routed deal,which i didnt like anways,i only play in d# and e.

If i dont like it ,leftys are hard to find but easy to sell.

I think the radius was 12" on those, also the neck has a Gibson "slim taper" C-shape unlike Ibanez U-shape. It's comfortable and fast, should work for you.
