New Guitar Day...

New guitar day for Mudbelly, look what UPS brought. What we have here is an Eastwood baritone guitar, the Sidejack Deluxe model. Tuned B to B it's same relative pitches as a standard guitar tuned E-E so you play regular chords, they just sound different notes. What this means is you can't look at my hands and know what chord to play, I'll mess you up.

This is a Korean made guitar, very nice. The baritone guitar is the deep twangy sound you hear on old rockabilly, western swing, surf recordings and spaghetti western movie sound tracks. Now a days you often hear it with the new metal bands with lots of distortion. This guitar is a copy of the old Ventures model made by the Mosrite Guitar company of Bakersfield Ca. For a try out jam last night with friends I got experiment with it through a Mesa Boogie Mark I and an old big hair rack mounted Marshall. The P-90 pickups in this guitar killed through those amps but I expect to be using it nice and twangy with gobs of delay with my old Fender amps.
