Help Identifying this Asian model

Post by Revolutions » Sat Mar 30, 2024 10:41 am

Hi everyone, thanks for letting me join here :)

Kinda stumped on this guitar & wondered if anyone here might be able to shed some light on where/when was this guitar made?

It’s advertised as a Baretta with a TRS-101. I’ve never seen a classic headstock & block logo combo, and there’s no other markings or serial number. Well beyond my Kramer knowledge. The trem might be aftermarket, so didn’t read too much into that although I think Korean models had Floyd Rose models towards the end?

Maybe something like these.

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

Thanks, that’s really useful! First time I’ve seen the same headstock & logo with black tuners. None of those match the guitar above though, and none of the necks have rosewood board with non-matching beak headstock. Also all the Baretta’s in that catalogue have zebra Humbuckers.

There’s every chance being l/h that they just used whatever neck was available to put on the body. Or that someone changed the neck, I suppose.

Do these mij guitars not have serial numbers?

Cast plates, Axxxxx, Bxxxxx or just xxxxx (x = number)

If I was a southpaw and that guitar was the right price, I would buy it.
