Tempest Baritone – Prototype

The Tech

With styling inspired by the classic t-style design that has been rocking the world for decades, the Tempest is a blend of traditional craftsmanship and state-of-the-art technologies.  This one off prototype baritone version features a 28 5/8″ scale length, and is finished in black gold.

Humbucker P90 Pickup set

Sporting a humbucker in the bridge and and a P90 in the neck position give this guitar a distinctive sound, that combined with the baritone scale delivers an authentic and versatile tone.

The Wood

The body and neck are made from hand picked Ash and Maple hardwoods, and the fretboard is Black Dimond Richlite. They are carefully selected for their tone and resonance, which allows for a surprising amount of sustain.

It’s all about the finish

At Munson Guitars we always prefer to use finishes that leave the grain visible, so you can see the beauty of the wood. The Ash body is finished with a uniquely stunning black gold finish, which is sealed with natural oil to give a satin like look and feel. The Maple neck, which includes a dual action truss rod and contrasting dark walnut skunk strip, is protected and enhanced by a traditional nitrocellulose finishing which delivers a hard wearing, yet soft satin feel for a super fast action.

Proudly British

The tempest ultra modern is designed and crafted in Britain by our luthier and is offered as part of our ex-demo stock.
