I was in a guitar shop today and I found this Schecter guitar and I saw that it was a baritone, so I took it down, and as I looked at the headstock, I noticed that it only had 5 strings. I blinked a couple of times- to no avail. So why would Schecter make a 5 string guitar, a baritone no less. Does anyone know anything about this strange axe? Thanks.

are you sure it wasnt a 5 string bass?
Nicks and dents are battle scars...they give a guitar history.

Yeah it had to have been a five string bass.

Everyone shut your mouths. You are all freaking idiots. Wes Borland used to play a 5 string Baritone guitar in L.B. Its used for powerchords rhythm and thats about it. Its not a soloing/lead guitar. But i believe you and know what you are talking about.

^I thought he played a 4 string in "Nookie" (yes, I too was a Limp Bizkit fan). It was like that one JohnnyBoy posted, only without the wild shape. Just a regular old Schecter strat shape.

Yeah I remember that Schecter.

It never struck me, I'd rather have a 6 string baritone.

I dig the pretty colors in your eyes.

Would the addition of a 6th string really be that hindering? I mean, why even make a five string guitar... it's like making a toaster with one slot.

I've seen them on ebay a couple of times in the past. You don't see these things often. They're not a very popular guitar.

^x2 Exactly.

I wonder if Schecter is trying to make money, or just trying to have a laugh at whoever would buy one.
Bleh.

They probably set a camera up pointing towards the shelf where they were kept, laughing at whoever tried them.

Pretty pointless, but I would love to try one...

^ I wouldn't.

The idea of a 5 string guitar to me is disgraceful to the traditional minimum of six.
Bleh.

Not low enough for bass, not high enough for guitar. I'd rather a 7 string.

It was just interesting, it actually played pretty nice, had a heavy feel to it, I loved the .11's on it, gave it an almost glassy texture. Not muddy at all.
