I am selling a few guitars so look out for my other ads.

This Larrivee BT60 is made of Spruce & Rosewood. It's a slope shouldered baritone with a superb rich tone, great power and a deep, robust voice. A unique and beautiful sounding guitar.

The baritone guitar has a longer scale length than a standard guitar, but contrary to what you would expect, the longer scale length doesn't seem to make it harder to play (something to do with the neck profile I think!). I have only titchy hands and I manage just fine. The extra scale length and heavier string guages allow it to be tuned to a lower range. This lower tuning gives a profound power to the bass register that is absolutely addictive! Most people tune the baritone to B E A D F# B - standard tuning intervals at a lower pitch (although other tunings could be A D G C E A, or even C# F# B E G# C#).

Pat Methany, Bob Brosman and Gordon Giltrap play Baritone acoustics regularly on stage and have inspired many guitarists to buy their own. This Larrivée BT-60 has a superb rich tone and a deep, robust voice. This is truly a chance for you to own a unique and beautiful sounding guitar!
