Solidbody Baritone Electric Guitar with Plywood Body, Hardboard Top and Back, Maple Neck, Pau Ferro Fingerboard, and 2 Single-coil Pickups – Silver Burst

The Return of a Country Classic

Plywood bodies, lipstick tube pickups, and chicken-head concentric knobs: Danelectro isn’t a brand that’s known for playing it safe. Even still, the Longhorn Baritone’s blend of rustic country charm and retro-futurism is just as wild today as it was when the guitar was first released in the ’50s! This bass-meets-guitar design sports a hybrid 29.72-inch scale length — which sits between a standard baritone and a short-scale bass — to cover the deep-sounding B–B range. The Longhorn Baritone’s tonal depth comes out loud and clear through a pair of Danelectro’s legendary high impedance Lipstick pickups, gracing the extended range growl with a touch of chime and jangle. Finally, this Dano’s open and airy tone comes courtesy of its semi-hollow plywood frame, topped with composite hardboard — faithful to the original department-store charm of the original Danelectros!

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.

6-saddle adjustable bridge

While intonation is always a compromise on fretted instruments, the old-school straight wooden bridge found on vintage Danelectros was a significantly larger compromise than modern guitar bridge designs. Thankfully, Danelectro has outfitted the Longhorn Baritone with a modern metal 6-saddle design that allows for precise intonation for each individual string. Plus, this bridge offers a slightly sharper and clearer tone than the old wooden bridge — a quality that musicians find is perfect for brightening up the naturally dark tone of a baritone guitar.

A Longhorn with a long history

The Longhorn Baritone has a storied history in the world of country music. When it was first released in the ’50s, it was often used to double acoustic bass lines, forever after becoming known as the “tic tac bass” for its percussive, clanky tone. However, this instrument is by no means limited to country applications, and guitarists find that it’s a choice tool for singer/songwriters or guitarists looking for a fresh new sound — especially since baritone tuning requires almost no learning curve for musicians coming from the standard guitar. From ambient masterpieces to spacey spaghetti western textures to extended-range rock, the Longhorn Baritone’s versatility is second to none!
