A couple of years ago, a 2016 Jet Baritone caught my eye. My friendly, local, guitar guru let me take it home and try it for a couple days. It never went back. What a surprisingly versatile, well made, instrument. To my ears, it’s more mellow than my Dano. And, of course, there is that Bigsby. Speaking of which, that Bigsby rarely, if ever, causes it to go out of tune. Yeah, I was surprised, too.
