Does anyone know if the guitarist from Chevelle has a custom PRS baritone, or is he using a Custom 22/24 at the 25" scale?

I am debating turning my Ibanez SZ720FM (EMG 81/85) into a baritone. I have used a esquire tele as a baritone before and it sounded ok, but I am trying to see the value in a owning a full on baritone like the Mushok SE... Just don't think I can justify it.

EDIT: Sorry should have just done some Google Research. They are indeed production model Custom 24's

I higlhly doubt that peat uses a baraitone guitar, he plays in Drop B and A#, so I imagain that he uses a standard Custom 24, mabey even a 22 since none of chevelles songs go past the 21st fret.


Edit: I play Chevelle songs all the time on my custom Squier Affinity perfectly all the time.

It could be a McCarty Archtop, because I know for sure he doesn't use a a Trem.

Nor do I, that requires too much talent. :-)

Well, their songs aint hard, its the rythem and lyrics that make chevelle a good band, but if I'm able to play chevelle songs on a standard fender neck. He might use differnt kinds of PRS guitars for different songs, but I know for a fact he uses a custom 22/24 of some kind. But using a hard tail at such low tunings helps alot with tone and sustain and tuning stability.
