I've played both guitar and bass my whole life, but I've never owned (or even played) a baritone guitar 'til now, and what a revelation!
In terms of sound it's very versatile. My favorite is through my little 40-watt tube combo, clean channel with a touch of spring reverb. It absolutely sings! But then you can also plug it into something with more juice, and with the B to B tuning it becomes something really quite frightening!
In terms of its place in the musical spectrum, it slides right in there between the guitar and the bass, making arrangements as full and lush sounding as all get out!
But the icing on the cake is its look. It has a retro, Mosrite, surfer vibe going for it that makes me look incredibly cool!
All in all, a terrific instrument. Beautiful, functional, an instant prized possession!

I love it! It has a great finish and setup was perfect right out of the box. Plays great and feels great!

I needed a baritone with a tremelo and single coil pickups and this fits the bill perfectly. Plays and sounds really good, and the price is right. After a huge weather change overnight here in Nashville, needed to adjust the truss rod, but that's hardly unique to this or any guitar. Very happy with the instrument.

I'm a lefty who has played against his wiring for decades and two years ago bought an Ichiban LH from a private seller.
Upon discovering that playing to my wiring allowed me to sing along better and avoid insurmountable plateaus, I researched the brand and, now, two years later, bought the Sidejack direct, and I'm in love. The scale length and nut width suit my hands better than most standards, and it's a growly tummy tickling thing to play.
The quality of this guitar is amazing--Eastwood/Airline products are an incredible value. I now have two, and I've got my eye on the Airline Mandola LH because I've played RH guitar, mandolin, and banjo in the past but never got where I wanted to go, and I'm not there yet again but will be soon thanks to quality LH instruments at a totally reasonable price.

I really enjoy playing this instrument! It arrived well set up out of the box, the intonation was almost perfect, just a touch too low for my taste, but that was easily fixable. The sound this thing gets is incredible. The bridge pickup cuts through a dense mix well and helps sit on top of a bass if you are playing with one. The neck pickup is my favorite, it has great thick bottom end but really rounds out nice on the high end as well. Mixed together, you get a really nice tone across the spectrum. Now, they can be a little noisy, but that is somewhat expected out of single coils. It has got me thinking about swapping them out for something quieter however. Overall I am very happy with this purchase.

Just received it yesterday; haven't totally put it through the paces, but plays almost flawlessly. Intonation was pretty spot on especially considering the shipping and erratic Northeast US weather. I noticed a lot of other reviews mention issues with the bridge, mine was great. I happen to like the tension higher than it was set, but that was an easy adjustment with a screwdriver.
There was a little paint-chip on the neck; not really noticeable and doesn't impact playing.
