Taylor baritone guitars are designed for playing in a lower register with normal string tension, thanks to a longer 27-inch scale length. Tuned to B (B E A D F# B), the deeper acoustic tone is voiced with the GS body shape and a wood combination of either Indian rosewood or mahogany with Sitka spruce. It's a great choice for singers with a lower vocal range or players who favor a detuned sound. The baritone is offered as either a 6-string or an 8-string, which features two added octave strings that add extra shimmer to the voice without too much 12-string jangle. You can expect incredible tonal range, rich melodies, and a great guitar for walking basslines.
