1 Quality a 1, neck was slightly misaligned causing the strings to hit the frets. bones made of plastic.

 

 

2. sound? a three because they don't sound like a guitar.

 

 

3.four, very traditional looking.

 

 

4.  under two hundred dollars but no built in pick up. 

 

 

5. poorly packaged and Damaged in transit. had a crack in the body.

 

 

In Summary I got a lemon. I traded an amplifier I never used for it, paid to have the crack fixed and had new tuners and strings installed only to discover the neck was improperly made.

Ouch!!! I guess you could look at the bright side of things: you traded something you will never use and no one looked at for something that you may use and you will show to everyone how bad it is. hahahaha, you know, it may still have some life in it if you take it to someone that can work on it.

 

You never know...

Bill Jones, guillermo on the Fourm, has a LoneStar Bajo and he played it at the ATX Jam Session Last weekend.  I didn't think it sounded horrible for an Acoustic Bajo Sexto. 

 

I'm not sure what kind of strings he has on it, though.  I'm sure that can make a big difference in the sound of a lower end Bajo.

 

I will be posting some videos tomorrow of him and us jamming out, so you can check out how they sound live.

 

Update: 08/04/2006

 

Heres the link to see the bajo in action. Enjoy!!!

It was the Bravo model, I could fix the neck but it would cost more than the Bajo is worth.

I have a Presidio Lone Star.....and yes, the first bajo I got, was damaged so this was a replacement. I had a friend of Joel Guzman's...Augie...replace the nut and re-space the bridge make it into a quinto. It is a solid top which gets better over time. I have played several bajos and this one sounds as good as the higher quality bajos.

Maybe I just got a good one.

Also I'll pass on the GHS strings.....I bought a couple pairs of custom wound from Macias and Augie also  put some good ones on....all bronze wound.....look like piano strings to me.....make the sound muy caliente!

Get the best strings you can....makes a big difference.

I had a Victorian Lonetar for about 5 years,until broke like 3 weeks ago. It was very sad.


(1) Quality-4   Decent neck and body but very nice for the price.

(2) Sound-4    Good decent sound unplugged (never plugged in much but still good as well)

(3) Design-3   Regular typical design but does have fewer frets (just to let you know for those of us who like to get high)

(4) Price- 5    The price is best part, a good bajo for beginners and hobbyists a good quality bajo for the same price or cheaper than alot of other more expensive bajos that are worse quality(ex.Flores and Gabanelli)and mine had a built in pickup. YEAH!!!!
