Baritones have longer scales lengths, so no.

I guess you COULD put really high gauge strings and down tune them though. You'll NEED a full set up though.
Bands to see before I die:
Iron Maiden
Foo Fighters
Megadeth
Reel Big Fish
Rush
Streetlight Manifesto

Gear:
Epi LP Standard
Washburn Strat
Line 6 Spider (Yes, I know it's bad)

GAS:
Ibanez RG3570Z
Digitech Whammy

yup, a baritone guitar is a baritone guitar, a guitar with heavy guage strings is just a regular guitar. I was thinking of tuning my guitar down though, I never thought of doing that till I heard someone with a baritone guitar....I said to myself "I never use any of the high frets anyway, perhaps I could stand to tune it down a few steps."

No, there is the extended scale length you have to deal with.
Got a question about Baritone guitars? Feel free to PM me.

Thanks to UG, I converted from Metalcore to some "real" Metal.
