NGD A strange Baretta is on the way.

Post by SWANTECH » Fri Aug 17, 2018 11:44 am

Just bought this one from GC. An odd looking, but clean Baretta.
It kind of looks like an 85 body and plate, but with a mid 86 pyramid logo, R5 neck.
The pictures make it hard to see the details. I will have to wait a week to inspect it close up.
It could have been an 85 with a bad scarf joint neck swapped out at Kramer back in the day.
I can always return it. If it is too mutty. LOL.

Saw that and thought the same thing - 84/85 with warranty neck. Cool nonetheless!

What’s the first 2 digits?
But let's face it, someone buys a Kramer b/c it has a Floyd.

I can't read them. I have to wait a week. That sucks.

There are worse things to wait for, I guess :thumbs .
Practice cures most tone issues.
