I see that Musikraft makes a Pacer body, but does anyone make a Baretta body, with the slanted humbucker and the Floyd routing?

If no, what cheaper import Kramer body would be best to use that is closest to a mid-80's Baretta?

Thank you.

just keep an eye on the klassifieds and I'm sure you'll find a baretta or focus 1000 body on there, thats where I found mine
It may not be long, but it sure is skinny!

KNE used to, not sure if they still do. shrug

You can select pup configuration as well.
But let's face it, someone buys a Kramer b/c it has a Floyd.

Locke makes Baretta bodies that look pretty good.

Is a Focus 1000 body identical? KNE no longer appears to have a Baretta body, and the Locke body doesn't appear to be routed for the Floyd?

'86 and on, Focus and Baretta are pretty close. Pre '86 not so close. Locke body is routed for Floyd, you can see it's drilled for Floyd posts

Looks like KNE has the SD (San Dimas) body available. And you can get the slanted pickup rout as well
