what exactly is a baritone i saw one in a guitarworld magazine but have never figured out what it is?
#2
Longer scale, tuned to B standard. In music, baritone is between treble and bass, like a viola is a "baritone violin" because its between a violin and a cello, except there is not "bass guitar".
#3
a baritone is a low brass instrument, close range to that of a tuba. baritone is also a term applied to other instruments, such as baritone sax and baritone guitar. just means it has a lower range.

No there isn't, shut up. A bass is tuned differently than a guitar. Stop talking out your ass.

A baritone is normally tuned down to B, and has a scale ~27". Like previously mentioned, it is between a bass and guitar.

not really, a baritone is more like a lower tuned guitar with a longer scale. now this is between a bass and a guitar. its one octive below a guitar, but one octive above a bass, right in the middle.

A baritone guitar is a guitar with a longer scale and therefore has more tension so it is usually used for dropped tunings.

no it is two. a normal guitar is usually 24.75" or 25.5" scale in standard E, schecter makes a guitar with a 30" scale that is one octive below a normal guitar, and where as a bass is usually a 34" or 35" scale and two octives below.

Have you played a bass? its definately one octave.

Yeah, cause a guitar is definatly tuned EADGCF. A bass comes from a large upright instrument that you (usually) stand up to play, whereas a guitar comes from a small instrument that you play in your lap. Get your head out of your ass as well.

EDIT: And that Hellcat is either a baritone, or a guitar tuned one ocvate down, which is still not a bass. Also, two octaves below a guitar is almost in audible, its usually only used to thicken up a bass tone (you can get the effect in a stompbox).

ok on your bass play on the low e string play the e up one octave so it would be at the 12th fret, while on your guitar play your low e string they should both sound the same
