Update.
I was wrong. I am making it more ugly. LOL.
Just an FYI. HOLY S, there is a lot of finish on these old Candy Red Kramer's. It is hard to sand through the thick polyester clear coat. Then there is a layer of red, gold, and black.
I got the junk paint off the front and back off the head stock. The previous person sanded off all the original paint.
Now I need a new decal.
I will need recommendations on that. Where to buy? What is the original logo like on a late 1984 Baretta? Should say Kramer Baretta I think?

For now I am going to do a Heavy Relic finish to it. Leave some of the original red. Let some of the gold, black, and natural wood show through. I bought it too play it any way. It is already looking pretty cool. A lot better than it did.
Maybe one day, I will decide to refinish the guitar completely. I will post pic's in a day or so.

The decal for the 2016 Giveaway guitar came from Vinny.

He has the one you want.

Cool, Thanks.

Maybe he would be interested in refinishing this guitar?
I have no way of doing it right now. I cant spray inside my house, and I have no garage at the moment.

Last I spoke to him he was trying harder to avoid paint work than venereal disease....

You can ask.....but be warned that he DOES NOT work cheap. :dollar :dollar :dollar :dollar

If Vin has no time to do it, another go-to address is Meanstreet guitars, Mitch is a real artist and does holoflash and any crazy stuff you may imagine.

I still have a little of that vintage white too...

There are a couple good ebay vendors for those decals too; I've used tons of em. "Killer decal" or something like that is one user name I'm thinking of.

Thanks.
I have been looking on ebay for the correct logo. So far it seems no one has it in stock.

As for paint. I am undecided at the moment. I will see how the relic red looks. It is looking kind of cool. Still not done with it. I have soo many other projects going on at the same time.
