The marketplace for solid-body electric guitars is very crowded, and most companies seem content to take a “me too” approach to extended range instruments. Jericho Guitars wisely took a different approach by specializing in long-scale and extended range guitars that are more in tune with the wants and desires of modern guitarists, both figuratively and literally.
Jericho Guitars has launched its new Avenger 7 Pro Series seven-string electric guitar. Boasting a 26-inch scale length, the new Avenger 7 Pro series bridges the gap between a 24.75-inch standard scale and a 27-inch baritone scale. This one guitar cuts the fat off every problem associated with a baritone scale while accentuating every upside of both, for less than $850.
Tuning a guitar down a whole step or more puts players in the fast lane of the heavy highway, but the downside to down-tuning on a standard guitar is that the strings can get overly floppy and proper intonation can be difficult to attain.
We took a look at Jericho’s Fusion model, which is designed to appeal more to traditional-minded players who prefer the look and features of a classic guitar over those of a modern hot rod.
