Hi,

Does anyone know if Gibson ar going to make another baritone?
I like the SG they got but...ONLY WHITE!!!?
I'm also not too sure of the fretboard material - has anyone tried a RichLite fretboard, how are they, any pros and/or cons? And before anyone asks - no, I can't find the guitar ANYWHERE to try it!
Will they re-release the Silverburst Explorer Baritone? That was AWESOME!!!

Thanks,
B Jones

Not that I know of.

Why in the world does it have to be a gibson anyway?
ESP makes some cheap nice baritone guitars, among which there's a black SG.

Richlite is a plastic like material obtained from paper recycling.
It's cheaper than wood and you will not be able to tell the difference.
Thing is, even if the thing is cheaper, they didn't really make their guitar cheaper since the time they started using that for their necks.
Name's Luca.

Clue: amplifiers amplify so don't turn it on if you need quiet.

Gibson never sells a lot of baritones, so they seldom put one out -- and they're hard to find when they ARE in production. Same with seven-strings (I could never figure out why they put out a seven in a 24.75" scale anyway).

Perhaps the best source of surprisingly good extended range guitars for reasonable money at the moment is Agile (Rondo Music dot com). Kurt Zentmaier (the owner of Rondo) began hanging out at sevenstring.org and began to have the Korean factory crank out reasonably priced multi-string and/or long scale (up to 30"!) and/or fan-fret ("multi-scale") guitars, adjusting things as he got feedback from buyers and from forum comments.

Beyond the standard line of Septors, Interceptors, Pendulums, etc., you can custom order other guitar body shapes with longer scales, including some of the AL (LP-ish) guitars.

It's virtually the same material as micarta (Richlite is a brand name), which essentially a highly pressed resin+paper material used for gunstocks as well as knife and handgun grips. It's weatherproof and extremely tough, and will probably feel more like ebony than rosewood. Forget the mineral oil -- clean it as you would plastic.
