Hey UG,

I wonder if building a baritone guitar is any more difficult than just a regular one?

I really wanna try building a guitar (never done it before but I'm pretty handy with building/taking stuff apart in general) and I've always wanted an Explorer shaped baritone.

So assuming I buy the neck. Would it be any more complicated than just a regular guitar? Also how much would the neck run me?

make the neck, theres a fret calculator on stewmac.com just type in what scale you want and it will give you fret positions

its not that much different from making any other guitar you just have to know your fret positions to the millimeter haha

The actual process of placing the bridge etc is exactly the same as any other guitar.

It is worth considering the upper fret access and corresponding nut location though.

Giving very good upper fret access pushes the nut further away from your body making playing the low notes a little harder (depending on the length of your arms lol)

all you need to do is buy a neck.

warmoth sells baritone conversion necks for any bolt on guitar.

they don't fit squires though. but they'll fit warmoth's bodies and fenders and such.
Prs se Holcomb is the answer

Is there any service similar to warmoth, that could build me a neck in Europe? Like in Poland or something, because the shipping would be WAY less. I Live in Lithuania you see.
