Matt Eich founded Mule Resophonics to contribute a new resonator guitar—one with warmth and depth, one that was easy to play, and full of nuance. Mule strives to create new sounds that give players a new experience to inspire new songs and new music. With that in mind, it's no surprise so many of their designs are out of the box.
Speaking of "out of the box," here's something you don't see every day! The Mulecaster features a hollow steel body, set up as an electric guitar. The steel body gives everything a hollow 3D resonance that is hard to explain but easy to hear in the mix. And this Mulecaster is a 25" baritone, tuned B to B! On top of that, it has a Hipshot Palm Bender so you can take a step into bender territory and mic that classic pedal steel sound. Need something new? This Mulecaster may be everything you're looking for.
In your hands, this Mulecaster Baritone is all about new ways of expression that will lead to new musical ideas. The 25" scale makes the baritone so much more accessible. Plus, it has a 1-11/16" nut width, and even though the neck is a little chunky (.090" at the 1st fret), the soft V profile feels just right. Every right hand nuance jumps out because it takes so little effort to get the guitar going. It's like being used to an old Buick and then feeling the gas pedal on a sports car.
This 2022 Mulecaster Steel-Body Baritone is gently used. Because of the relic treatment, it's hard to tell what—if anything—is wear and what was done intentionally by Mule. It includes a Mono gig bag, and it is currently set up with flatwound strings.
