This is­sue’s bari­tone round-up has Mike jonesing for a bari to call his own .“some­times go­ing lower takes you higher,” our res­i­dent gear sage tells us, in a rare mo­ment of rig-based pro­fun­dity. Plus, it’s an es­sen­tial piece of kit if you’re go­ing to tackle the surf gui­tar line in Ricky Martin opus, Livin’lavi­daloca!

Roblaing

The plight of the rhythm gui­tarist is some­thing that Rob feels keenly.
