Kramer has unveiled the Hot Dogger ’84 – a single-pickup electric guitar with a limited-edition finish that pays tribute to the fast food favorite.

As you will no doubt be aware, National Hot Dog Day takes place on the third Wednesday of July each year. In 2022, amid the widespread celebrations of all things hot dog, Kramer took to social media to share pics of a limited edition ’84-style build, the Baretta Hot Diggity custom, featuring a mustard finish and hot dog artwork from guitar artist Ronz World.
