This guitar is like no other. I was down at Guitar Center, and I happened across the Dead On Baritone. I thought it looked a bit like a Jazzmaster (but cooler), but I thought the color was cool (limey) so I picked it up and tried it out. The tremelo/whammy is fun, and suprisngly better than any other Floyd Rose I've tried. Keep it on clean and it sings like no other bird, perfect for Funk or more mellow Blues. But if you kick on the distortion, that's another story. It screams and wails and plays the best Iron Maiden and AC/DC. It's the perfect guitar for anyone, and the price is just magnificent. One of Danelectro's best guitars, in my opinion.
just got this brontosaurous home, and it kicks. the tone, the style, the weight, the action, ON. the tone switch and pickup knobs realy deliver a wide varity of sounds..from super single coil twang to fat double lipstick thickness. i have no negative things to say about this guitar, but it did give me a few surprises. i ordered it on line after playing and loving its short necked twin thinkin the extra frets will be amazing. they are, but you should know the first five frets are literally as wide as most bass guitars and this creature is a littly neck heavy, but not bad. so all in all, killer buy. different, but i like it.
This was my first baritone so I wanted to get my feet wet without dropping large cash. I played the standard dead-on at the GC store, marveled at it's quality and lightness, ordered the baritone from their web site. My biggest concern was neck heaviness; especially given how light the body is. Sitting down it is ever so slightly neck heavy, but put on a strap and it's nicely balanced. The shape of the body makes it pretty hard to play sitting down in any case. You can't adjust intonation, but my tuner says it's all ok as is. The whammy bar is good only for light embellishments. I have a pretty electrically noisy studio, so a noise gate was really a good idea to quiet things down. The pickup switch puts forth a loud mechanical clack that resonates through to the pups. Gotta change that.
The Dead on 67 Baritone has laid down a new level of Cool Kitsch. Yes, I know its cheap and uses low grade parts but it came with a decent set up and frets were finished nicely. Pickups are quiet and decent sweep on the pots. If big fat chords and huge single string picking are your thing you will love this axe. Played over the Derailer's & Dwight Yoakam it is outstanding. With a small shot of compressor and delay it really sounds good. Gripes are the two piece pick guard/control cavity cover. Should be one piece or same material with better fit. It won't be my main guitar but I would play it anywhere you needed to get a big fat unique sound.
ok.. i didnt have time 2 try out the guitar itself, but... it felt very smooth, the color & texture is very cool, and very modern... next time i go 2 GC i wanna try out this guitar, it has like a Fender Jaguar design
