We love exposing musicians to the unique sound and playing applications of our baritone guitars. The combination of our Grand Symphony body, 27-inch scale length, and B tuning (a fourth below that of a standard guitar), together with our signature tonal balance and clarity, gives players an inviting platform to explore its deep, rich musical register. The guitar’s lower range makes it easier to sing your favorite songs and hit notes that might otherwise be hard to reach — all without the need to transpose or retune. And if you want to play in standard tuning, simply use a 12-string capo on the fifth fret. The baritone also makes a wonderful textural complement together with another guitar, allowing you to play bass parts, alternative chord voicings, and rich melodies that blend depth and shimmer.
This pair of limited edition baritones features both a 6-string and an 8-string model. The 8-string edition incorporates two additional octave strings (coupled with the third and fourth strings) that sprinkle a bit of 12-string shimmer into the midrange without adding too much jangle. Single strings on the low and high ends of the tonal spectrum help preserve clarity for walking bass lines and lead runs. The wood pairing of blackwood back and sides with a mahogany top is well-suited for the baritone’s musical range because the woods keep the overtones in check, producing a balanced, focused and well-defined sound that can be difficult to achieve in lower-register instruments.
