I dont know much about baritone guitars. Ive looked up stuff on google but jus cant find what im lookin for.
I wanna get one to play some heavier stuff with a group of guys that i just started playing with lately.

I thought about getting the Ibanez MMM sig. but i dont know.
Any tips on choosing one?

the neck is longer, which allows u to tune down your strings without having them too loose, also the longer scale gives you lower notes

thanks
So im leaning towards the MMM still. which is Mike Mushok i do believe
any other thoughts on different baritones?

they're made for low tunings. If you play low almost all the time, you should get one.

and if they're short a bassist, get a seven-string baritone.

A Les Paul Baritone would be sweet.

Give 10 UGers a rope and ask them to pull. 4 will push, 1 will ask for buttsecks, 2 will tell you get an Ibanez and the last 3 will start complaining about Line6 Spiders.

I really like the agile baritone thats on rondomusic's website, but they only seem to have left-handed ones available at the moment for some reason.

That is a weird tuning. I think normal tuning for baritones is BEADGB, or sometimes just EADGBE but an octave below. Fender baritone guitars (they make... two I think) are BEADGB

ADGCEA is my preferred tuning for a baritone

It's between a bass and a guitar, so there is much more oomph and ungh.

lol

but yea, they kick ass.

woah a baritone can really handle EADGBE a whole octave down? thats basically a basically a bass.

Dont think my guitar is a baritone it was giving to me as a gift it a company ive never even heard of "ION Guitars" But with the strings i got on it which gauges @ 13,17,30,36,46,56 a mixture of Erine Ball 7 strings regular and Erine Ball STHB's and i can Tune at BEADGB perfect b/c i play a lot of Coal chamber songs, i also tune @ BF#BEG#C# as well. @ one point i got down to ADGCFA but that was the braking point and it did hold to much but i got to Standard for 7 strings.
