Lucida Now Shipping New Bajo Quintos
November 9, 2010
For mariachi-style Bajo players who want classic tone at an affordable price, Lucida offers three *Bajo Quinto* models that deliver the historic mariachi sound without the muddiness from the low E-string commonly associated with traditional Bajo Sexto.
Our Bajo Quintos are built from the same select tonewoods as our Lucida Bajo Sexto, and are available in three different configurations to accommodate any traditional or contemporary playing situation. The Lucida Bajo Quintos are available as an acoustic model (LG-BQ1), an acoustic-electric model (LG-BQ1-E) and a thin-body electric (LG-BQ2-E). The EQ models are fitted with a 4-Band EQ pickup, making them the perfect choice for amplified playing.
Lucida Bajo Quintos feature solid spruce tops, mahogany backs, sides, and necks, rosewood bridges and fretboards, abalone and fiber rosettes, and 3-ply body binding. The Bajo Quintos have classic cutaway designs to allow comfortable access to the upper frets, and are strung with authentic Mexican Mariachi strings.
Despite their popularity, a quality Bajo Quinto can be hard to find. Lucida is excited to offer these classic mariachi-style guitars with authentic features and an affordable price tag. The Bajo Quintos with 4-band EQ pickups have a street price of $299.99, while the standard Bajo Quinto has a street price of $247.49. All three models are available now.
Lucida is the builder of authentic classical guitars as well as traditional Mariachi instruments.
