Baritone Reissue with Hot-wound Lipstick Pickups
This sharp-dressed Baritone reissue from the 2019 Danelectro collection delivers the bass down low — real low. We're talking B to B. That's a perfect fourth below standard E to E tuning. And whether you're a downtuned country picker, a drop-tuned hard rocker, or an accompanist/recording artist on the prowl for alternate open-chord voicings, the Danelectro Baritone is built to take your music in exciting new directions. The hybrid 29.75"-scale-length maple neck makes a comfortable transition for bass players and guitarists both. Electronics-wise, two high-output lipstick pickups driven by a simple 3-way selector permit quick access to those coveted Dano Bari tones, along with a sweet, throaty breakup that won't leave you drowning in amp noise. All the while, classic Danelectro stylings — the Art Deco single-cut body style and iconic Dolphin headstock — make this bari a sweet addition to any collector's showcase.
Country to rock and beyond
Early Danelectro Baritones made waves in the Nashville scene with their percussive "tic-tac" bass lines and throaty open voicings. This baritone electric guitar utilizes an updated construction that enhances its performance. A chambered spruce body is capped with a hardboard top and hardboard back. By using spruce, Danelectro ensures that this instrument will sustain with the best of them. Today's Baritone reissue is a highly versatile instrument that's perfect for modern rock and singer accompaniment.
High-output lipstick pickups
Danelectro's fabled lipstick pickups have captured the imaginations of countless guitarists throughout the ages. This Baritone's high-output lipstick single-coils hark back to the vintage tones of rock's earliest days. The result is a bari sound that truly stands alone — a defined attack, a formidable bottom end, and a healthy dose of midrange punch and top-end zing. Additional windings give this bari added output to drive an amp hard. And with its 3-way pickup selector and simple master volume/tone, you will have no trouble finding a sound for your music.
