Can you believe that as a guitarist of about 20 years, I never actually owned a baritone 6-string? Especially considering that I tuned down my 6s as low as A, a baritone would have been a no-brainer. But nope, it just never happened. So fuck, I feel like I'm late to the party.
The reason I recently became interested in baritone 6s again was the fun that I had playing my Kiesel C66. After years of playing 7s and 8s, it was just fun to riff around on it. I didn't really write music on it, but it quickly turned into my go-to guitar to just bust out a few riffs.
The fact that the C66 is standard scale kept me from tuning it lower than C, but I kind of wanted the best of both worlds. The fun of playing a 6 with the down-tuning capabilities of an extended range instrument. So besides ordering a Kiesel baritone, I also got this:
The @JerichoGuitars Edge Premium 6 Baritone
I'm actually just about to publish a review of it on ergnerds.com, but let me tell you that I am thoroughly impressed with this guitar. The organic and stealthy, yet classy looks drew my attention to it in the first place, but this instrument delivers through and through.
The Edge Premium gives the term "import guitar" a run for its money. It is produced in the same factory as the Strandberg Boden series, which has an outstanding reputation for its high quality and attention to detail. And the same applies to this Jericho baritone 6.
What's also really unique about it is that it is entirely made of wenge and walnut. And with that being said, it's a bit heavier than I usually like, but it sounds and plays great. I also like the SD Nazgul a lot more in this guitar than the 7-string version I tried for my pickup shootout.
Well, I am going to record some clips later today and the review should be pretty much good to go. I will most definitely let you all know when it goes live, so you can check this thing out! Until then, just enjoy the photos. I made an effort and left the house to take them for a change.
