first, the guitar plays great... has a killer tone. the problem is i just got it rigged for drop tune b and i'm not 100% happy with the sound... maybe it's just my amp( peavey 6505 combo). it did sound killer on a bogner uberschall though. big question...

WHAT'S THE BIG DEAL WITH BARITONE'S?

somebody please explain to me why a baritone would sound better than my current guitar in drop tune B. what is strong and weaknesses for owning a baritone?

for the record, i play grind, death, and black metal...

The longer scale of the baritone will make the strings tighter on low tunings, so in most cases it should be better. Personally I think they are overrated, i've dropped to A on several standard guitars and the results were similar to what I got from a baritone, except I found the longer scale a bit uncomfortable. So i guess it's just like buying a seven string for low tunings, except that no one really notices that you ain't playing an average guitar.

Try some heavier strings for your rhodes and you should be fine. But at the same time try out a baritone just to see if you like them
