Well I think its about time I give my thoughts about the Halo MERUS 7 Baritone.
I'll make it simple with 3 words. Amazing, Clear (and) Beautiful.

It is an extraordinary guitar. Beautiful, easy played and heavy as f*** (music heavy). The depths of the low tones and clarity is simply perfect for my use. The Blackouts gets every note that I play and I LOVE IT!

This is my band, with me and the Halo
(I've recorded this song with another guitar)
This riff:

that starts at 5:16.

I cant get the low tones to punch me in the face with the power i want to. Unless i get an awesome stack.
But this is the only downside with it, in my opinion.

Advantages: You guys know how to make brilliant instruments ;)

5/5 stars

Disadvantages: It has an drawback with the pickups, all though its awesome. If I want to play an riff that has an low tone trembling in the background and also wants to play high notes, the low tones disappear and gets muted. It depends on what stack or combo I use. With my combo it does not get the riff like it is supposed to, but with a Randall stack for example, it sounds like a God made masterpiece. (for my personal use) But i think its the Blackouts fault.
