Baritone Jazzcaster in Spalted Maple, Wenge, and Sapele Mahogany


By Soderlund Guitars

View Gallery

This multiscale baritone is all about playability and chocolate tone. Its heavily chambered Sapele Mahogany body is capped with a crazy Spalted Maple top and strung to a Wenge neck with medium gauge strings. These three wood species are among the finest for a resonant, woody tone. These, paired with the 27.5 to 26.5-inch scale length, ensure a fully represented dynamic range that you'll never get from a standard 25.5-inch guitar. This one is standard tuned, where it sparkles with classic strat chime, but it just loves to be dropped a tone to dig out a peaty, rich bass register.
