I don't know if they are making these anymore, but the scale length is 30" not the Baritone 27.5". You would think somebody at dano would correct this. This is similar to a Fender Bass VI, A Schecter hellcat too..Quality is run of the mill Chinese, but with some work, it's a cool little noisemaker. You'll need to drill out the E and A tuners to fit .095 and .080 strings, but it's easy to do. all in all a good inexpensive intro to Bass VI..a 30" scale, six string bass tuned E-E.
I picked up one of these at a local music shop recently and I have to say I was really surprised when I found it. It may feel a bit like low quality in your hands but the sound doesn't show it. The bridge stays perfectly intone and the tuners are perfect too. The baritone sound is really nice as well. The neck is ok and I haven't had any problems with it. You can't beat the price for what you get, a really great buy for any player with long enough arms.
got a USED damaged limey '67 baritone here on MF, and repaired it back to full functionality. Tone wise, the single coil lipstick pickups provide that chime only a lipstick tube can evoke. The baritone sound definitely comes thru - unique, one-of-a-kind, haunting and beautiful when played right. There is conviction in each note as only thick-gauge strings can provide. The neck is comfortable to play, and the frets are dressed cleanly and smoothly on the bottom side - no finger cuts! The guitar feels light, and not that neck heavy.unfortunately, thats all thats good. everything else feels...cheap. the body is solid basswood (not masonite over thick plywood like most danos), and its super thin. The pickguard is straight-cut sharp - not even a decent beveled angle on the edges. Also, the pickguard design looks like clear thick plastic over what looks like shiny cloth material underneath. The controls feel, look, and ARE cheap. The matte finish is a commendable cost-cutter -you can skip shining it to a gloss. The brushed chrome lipstick tubes feel like theyre NOT metal at all. It felt soft, like plastic.For its construction, its retail price is NOT justified. For not a lot more, you can get the Italia Modena which looks better made. Or The Gretsch Baritone.That said, the dead-on DOES sound great, with a smooth solid neck, its FUN to play, and very refreshing and inspiring. But thats all that matters, right?
