Description

We love a smooth sailing guitar. One that plays easily, offers an even blend of clarity and color, and responds to a soft touch as easily as a harder hand. The sort of guitar which satisfies, pacifies, just feels good. After only a few moments with this 2016 Baranik Meridian, and we knew we were in the right place. This is a fabulous fingerstyle instrument with a dark set of African Blackwood for the back and sides, and a Colorado Blue Spruce top with Manchinga trim and Mike’s “Southwest Blue” appointment package.
Prefer lower action? Mike’s neck angle is fully adjustable with a hex wrench. Looking for a unique aesthetic to stand out from the crowd? This guitar sports sparkling blue inlays, Manchinga, Black Palm, Wenge, and Koa. Not to mention this guitar won’t be needing a fret job for a long time, thanks to gold EVO frets. Throw in a soundport for good measure, and a Cedar Creek case for safety, and there you have it: clean, smooth, beautiful: the Baranik Meridian.

Mike Baranik is a wonderful craftsman and has an eye for beauty and subtle details, something this guitar is replete with. The African Blackwood body conjures up a rich darkness that is compelling to the ear, and the Blue Spruce top adds chime and sizzle, making this a guitar that I feel like I could play anything on. I really enjoyed the dynamic response depending on playing near the bridge or near the neck. It felt as though I had a gear shift. This is one I could play for hours and hours.
