Yesterday, I made a thread about getting a 7 string for lower tunings, But someone said I would be better off getting a 6 string baritone.

So I did some research on teh interwebz and couldn't really find any good info on them, and Yes, I also used the search bar.

So what exactly Is the difference between a 6 string in Drop B and a 6 String Baritone in Drop B?

Baritone is tuned to B standard, i.e:

B
G
D
A
E
B

Baritone's have a longer neck scale. So the strings you need for low tunings won't have to be as thick.

EDIT: In my opinion, if you're tuning lower than C you'll want a baritone. It makes intonation a whole lot easier.

A baritone guitar has a higher scale length (generally 27-28") meaning that it has higher string tension when compared to a regular length guitar, allowing you to use lighter strings for lower tunings or play easier if you're not used to the lack of string tension

Danelectro makes a pretty cool baritone guitar for pretty cheap. obviously it has the lipstick tube pickups so they're meant for lower gain vintage sounds, if that's what you're into

They are plywood guitars


but if you really want a cheap baritone those are the way to go


One day I'm gonna get a danelectro baritone and throw an EMG in there or something

So I'm guessing the necks are a little longer than average.

Well, Thanks guys, Next time I go to a GC or music store, I'll probably try one out to see how it feels.

It depends really. Have you even tried a 7 string?

The Agile baritone AG-3500 from Rondo is pretty good. If you want you can see mine on my profile for lookin at. I don't really know how well it compares to other brands, but I've got a lot of guitars and the quality on it is really pretty good for an unbelievable price.

No, But I've been wanting to try one out for a really long time, I'm a huge fan of 7 string players, Vai, Ken Susi, Buz Mcgrath and Petrucci
