Jericho Guitars Releases the Avenger Baritone

The Texas-based company delivers their new long-scale model.

Dallas, TX (March 26, 2014) -- Showcasing premium components, high quality tone-woods and a carefully constructed and balanced design, Jericho Guitars has released the 2014 Avenger baritone guitar. Weighing in at around 7 pounds, this beast is built with the look and feel of a standard guitar yet allows you the ability to play lower and with more clarity than ever before.

The Avenger is smooth, fast and highly responsive, with the conventional feel of low action paired to a C-shaped neck. When plugged into a high-gain amp channel the Avenger delivers extreme levels of low-end thrust, yet it remains musical and expressive.

Specs:

  • 27” Scale
  • Seymour Duncan Invader in the Bridge/Full Shred in the Neck
  • Grover Tuners 18:1 Gear Ratio
  • Tone Pro Bridge
  • D’Addario Strings
  • 3 piece Maple Neck/ Solid Mahogany Body

Suggested retail price is $1249.99 with an average street price of $850.

Walrus Audio is a prolific builder, but, as the five reverb pedals in their lineup suggest, they have a real affinity for manipulating time and space. The beauty of the Slötvå reverb (which is derived from the company’s very similar Spin FV-1 chip-based Slö reverb) is how satisfying and simple it makes dramatic shifts between time/space textures.

With such a flashy flame top, the Silvertone 1445 was built to catch the eyes of department store shoppers.

I don’t know what’s going on lately, but I’m breaking down all over and my shoulder is the latest to crumble. When I was a kid I would practice guitar in my bedroom near a radiator with an ungrounded amp plug and I’d get a zap right through my guitar and into my hands. Well, my shoulder pain is like that now, only without the cool story of rock ’n’ roll survival. I simply woke up one day like this. After a few weeks of discomfort, I figured I’d try out a new pillow, since mine are flattened like a wafer. I ventured out to the mall and, much to my sadness, saw the local Sears store shuttered, with weeds growing up from the sidewalks and concrete barriers blocking the large glass doors. I know I don’t get out much, but, man, was I sad to see the Sears store I’d known since childhood closed-up like that. My wife was laughing at me because apparently it had been closed for some time. But since I seem to exist on a separate timeline than most folks, it was all news to me.
