i recently bought an esp baritone guitar that was factory tunned to B
i want to tune it up to Standard, can i do this or will it hurt my guitar
i guess i will have to do something with the truss rod or the gauge of my strings but im not sure
any help will be appreciated
sorry if this was a dumb question

Yes, you can tune it in standard.

No, Baritone guitars can be tuned in Standard or B.

i still dont get it (sorry im retaded) can i just tune my baritone from b up to e and play on it or do i have to loosen the truss rod or change strings to a higher gauge so as not to mess up the neck

truss rod adjustments ofc
and i'd put lighter strings

You would use a lighter gauge of strings if you did change them.
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"

Just tune it up to standard and see if plays ok, if not youll have to (or get somone to) set it up properly for standard tuning, obviously if you done all that you couldn't just simply tune it back to B again.

why would you buy a baritone and put it in E? it would be hard to play (VERY tight strings i would think...)

if i where you, i would tune it DOWN to A

You deserved this, Matt.

If you use regular string gauge you can tune it in standard.

Use a string tension calculator and see what gauge you need to keep tension as it was with you thicker strings and baritone tuning. That way you probably won't have to adjust anything

Insert your current string gauges and tuning, and scale length. Watch tension result.
Insert standard tuning and change string gauge till you get the same tension.
