Need some help with this Baretta Id

Trying to verify what it is. Gibson didn’t pull up anything on the serial. Is it American? What year is it? I do know it has had a blue Dimarzio evolution put in it and it has a cts 500k pot with no capacitor on it. Neck has abalone dot inlays. Real Floyd Rose.

someone swapped out the original pickup and the abalone dot inlays are the giveaway , That is the made in Nashville , TN USA / Gibson Baretta reissue.(2006) I have one. More info On vintagekramer . com Then look up Baretta, has all the info there on it. Personally I think it's right there with my original 85' Baretta's. It was Gibson's best effort to recreate the original.

But let's face it, someone buys a Kramer b/c it has a Floyd.

Awesome. Was very excited. Did notice it came with a second pickup in case which is a Dimarzio Fred. Tried putting it in and it had way too much too end.
