Cupertino, CA (Top40 Charts/ Halo Custom Bass Company)
Guitars has a long history of building the 7 string guitar and the addition of baritone 7 string guitar models was a natural progression. Now, in addition to offering professional 7 string guitars, Halo Custom
Guitars will also provide musicians with upgraded, baritone versions.
Halo Custom Guitars added eight new 7 string guitar models to its product line. The expanded offering of 7 string guitars is in direct response to increasing demand. "We built and sold our first 7 string guitars in our first year of business," stated Jeff Lee, General Manager with Halo Custom Guitars. "Back then, having a baritone neck on a 7 string guitar was not common. Now, 7 string guitar players are more discerning and understand the benefits of a baritone neck. The new Halo 7 string guitar models will feature a 27 inch baritone neck, a feature not yet seen on the majority of 7 string guitars in the world."
Halo 7 string guitars are designed to play more notes when compared to a standard guitar, which only has 6 strings. The additional string is typically used for extending the range of the guitar's low notes. However, the additional string can also be used for extending the range of the guitar's high notes.
"I am excited to be part of Halo Custom Guitars because they are always staying ahead of the pack by incorporating new features and guitar technology in their instruments," stated Alvin Gatewood, Quality Control Manager with Halo Custom Guitars. "We are equipping the new Halo 7 string guitars with a 'Tune-O-Matic'-Style Bridge and Tail Piece System, which we modified to reduce string breakage and increase tone transfer. These guitars are going to be a big hit as they have many high-performance features while maintaining the traditional hand craftsmanship desired by musicians."
