New addition to the family - H530

Recommended Posts

Picked up this beauty online two weeks ago. Had to be shipped coast to coast from Western Australia to the East Coast. 

Absolutely love the tones I get from it into my Matchless Lightning reverb 112, whether clean or overdriven.

You have excellent taste in guitars!  Congratulations.

I watch Shane from InTheBlues on YouTube.  There are a lot of nice boutique amp and guitar builder in Australia.  You definitely have some great options!

Thanks  for the compliment.

I haven’t followed Shane much so I’m not sure which aussie amp builders, still active, you are referring to.

Little Crow Guitars and Achillies Amps are homegrown Aussie companies.  Little Crow uses native woods and Achillies makes amps based upon old Fender designs.

Well picked up! It's a Duesenberg D6 Baritone. I've tuned it B to B (five frets down from standard guitar E tuning) and strung it with D'Addario Nickel Wound Baritone Lights (?) 13-62. It contributes a different sound with chords, riffs or lead when there are already one or two other guitars playing. As long as the other guitar players don't look at your fingers on the fretboard it's all good 🧐 A vast array of tones in the pickup combos and option to split the humbuckers. And with the constant thinking required for transposing, it will keep the brain ticking for a while yet.

Thanks for that. In terms of Aussie-made guitars I'm more familiar with the likes of Maton and Cole Clarke. Those Little Crow sure are different-looking guitars.

What differentiates a baritone guitar? Just the tuning? Longer scale? More frets? Enlighten me please.

The main difference is indeed a longer scale but not necessarily more frets. And generally heavier strings. My D6 has a 710mm scale and 24 frets.

Will, the tunings are generally:

Major 3d lower: C  F  A#  D#  G  C

4th lower: B  E  A  D  F# B

5th lower:  A  D  G  C  E  A

Listen to Glen Campbell on Wichita Lineman and Galveston.  I used one for the first time on a studio session a couple of weeks ago.  Ran it through a fuzzbox and doubled an alto sax line. It sounded like a bari sax.  Hilarious!

I knew that Glen used it on that song as well as several others in his catalog. I just didn't understand the specifics of the guitar.
