Baritone guitars

Anyone else catch the baritone bug? I got one a while back after I decided I liked the b-tuning of a 7 string, but hated the extra string.. now I'm hooked - I want more. Am I the only weirdo?

I ordered mine from Jeff Bamburg. He's out of Colorado. Great guitar. It's still new though - it will take a solid 6-12 months for the top to start opening up though.

Definitely caught the bug! I was very lucky to find a supercool
Jerry Jones double neck (guitar/baritone).
Love it!

I've had one or another for a few years, had an Alembic for a while. No question they sound cool, although it wouldn't be my only flavor.

I have a Danelectro Longhorn Baritone that I like very much. I never even changed the strings it came with and I only play it when I need it on a recording. Great for Tic-Toc and I also got a mean Reggae skank out of it recently.

What I like about reissue Danos is that you can buy a full rack of them for 'speciality' uses and still spend less than you would for any 'serious' guitar. I'm getting OT but I have a 12-string, 59-DC converted with a sitar bridge, a Convertible semi-acoustic and said Baritone and they all are extremely useful.

the Dano is a 30" right? That's that fine line between bari guitar and short-scale bass.

Mine are 28" and 27"

I picked up a Fender Bari Jag HH, and I love it. The humbuckers and hardtail are killer for doubling rhythm parts on heavy music. More of a beast than the regular Jag VI or Dano.

I went with a fanned fret model with a 28.5" lower scale and a 27" scale on the high strings.

Yeah, it seems to be 30'', never even knew this.

The fine line between baritone and bass is exactly what I like about the Dano but it has a lot to do with the 'chambered' Masonite/Lipstick PU sonics of Danelectro axes in general.

Mine are 28" and 27"
My 59 reissue dano is 27".

and makes all those country sounds to a T when tuned to A.

I found it easier to know where I was chord wise and I got more growl.

Ibanez MMM1. I like this thing a lot. My guitarist (im a drummer) has 2, I got one recently on ebay (in terrible fuxored up condition, so im returning it) but I would recommend one. They're not easy to get but MAKE SURE you get good photos of it first before buying it. I got burned.
