Guitare.com previously featured Kramer Baretta ‘Feral Cat’ & The 84 ‘The Illusionist’ custom graphics series on The Big Review, giving the 1980s-inspired guitars an overall rating of 8/10 for their “outrageous” sound. Reviewer Darran Charles called the guitars “two of the best sounding, most immediate rock guitars we’ve played”, praising the growl, power, definition and clarity offered in the tone of both guitars.
In other recent guitar news, Squier has released a selection of new Vintage Edition models as part of its extensive 40th anniversary celebration.
