The myth behind this guitar is Kramer Baretta, which was custom crafted indeed in the Neptune the NJ Kramer plant. And another truth is that the body isn't a Baretta but a Kramer Pacer Special. Actually, the control cavity of this electric guitar is very different from the 1980's Kramers.

In addition, the pickup is Edward created. Rumors pointed out that Seymour Duncan would create an Eddie style pickup, and after which it'll be a tailor made in custom. The headstock of this instrument is also completely original. Kramer in no way manufactured a headstock like Ed's 5150, which is an additional personalized content.
We spent a great deal of time to examine the data and tests of the original guitar, and made great efforts to replicate it. The body, neck and fingerboard employed the exact same wood as the original guitar, but the default pickups that compose the cost are Wilkinson pickups, which is far more cost-effective, quality trustworthy and may conserve much cash.
