Mongoose Baritone 7

Workshop of Dmitry Poznysh / Mongoose Baritone 7

Customer Review

It’s been 2.5 weeks since I received the instrument, so it’s possible to express the first impressions.
All conceived guitar features have justified themselves. Despite the fact that my hands are not large, the increased distance between the strings on the threshold and the baritone scale is very comfortable for me. In addition, thanks to the scale, the instrument sounds very modern. The bottoms are deep, the scale system perfectly holds even on the tenth string. Even the drop is quite good. The recommendation to make the scale 27″ came from Dmitry, for which I’m grateful to him!

Acoustically, the instrument sounds very good. The combination of wood is very successful – despite the presence of the lower middle (characteristic for alder), the sound at the lower reaches is tight, not dull at all, even on a neck humbucker. The wood is very responsive sound-wise.

Also, about the little things. Marks-cuts are very convenient, no problems with navigation (the previous guitar with top round marks was less comfortable). The execution of the conceived color is impressive (the color decision was chosen in guitarbuilder based on the color of the fittings and the lining). The quality of the build is the highest, as well as the quality of the selected accessories. Dmitry has tuned everything himself; I still haven’t reconfigured anything yet.

There is something magical when the instrument of your ideas and wishes comes to life! It’s just inexpressible! Dmitry, thank you very much for everything: for the quality of work, practical advices, communication skills, patience and humanity in everything.

As for the soundcloud samples, on the first one I am playing a riff with quintuplets on a neck, on the second one – clean in jazz-rock arrangement.
