Review: Jericho Guitars Walnut Evertune 6 Standard

(Image credit: Jericho Guitars)

I’ve always been fond of Jericho Guitars’ extended-range guitars, but what fascinated me most is that they regard a 25.75-inch scale length to be the proper scale length for all six-string guitars. Compare that to Gibson (24.74-inch) and Fender (25.5-inch). Jericho’s standard scale length provides an ideal marriage between intonation and string tension, especially for many modern players who down-tune regularly.

I asked the gang at Jericho Guitars to explain the reason behind the 25.75-inch scale length. Their response was, “What you get with the slightly longer scale is a truer source signal. Traditional and modern forms of amplification, like impulse responses, benefit from the extra harmonic content provided by this scale length.” Considering that, I believe Jericho’s Fusion Walnut EverTune might be the best guitar for today’s players who gig and record consistently. The combination of Jericho Guitars’ standard scale length and the inclusion of the EverTune Bridge makes it nearly impossible to play out of tune, regardless of the tuning you choose. More traditional players shouldn’t feel left out since the Fusion Walnut Evertune’s aesthetic and sound will also appeal to the classic rock and country crowd.
