ok, not sure if it's the right forum or not, if it's now, would a mod please move it?

ok, now, my question.

if a lot of metal bands tune down to like b standard, c standard, and a standard, why don't they just use a baritone guitar? don't know much about baritones to be honest, but it makes more sense to use a baritone than a regular tuned low.

opinions on this?

EDIT: to all that say that there arent many "metal" baritone guitars, if metal artists used them, wouldnt ibanez, dean, etc. start making them then?

they easily could but I don't think there are alot of baritone guitars out there with floyd rose trems. That may be the issue.

Man, would love a baritone acoustic for crazy tunings. As for metal, what in the world gauge of string do you use to tune down to B? Wouldn't they just be flopping all over the place? I guess it must make it easier on the fingers though. Yeah, I haven't the slightest clue?

I'd get 13 with an unwound G if I played in B.

I'll probably get a 7-stringer anyway.

12 or 13 gauge, I think. I've heard 11s for drop C and D. Just a guess, I'm a bassist, I don't know...

on my Les Paul (24.75") I use:
11's for standard - Dropped D
12's for D standard - Dropped C
13's for C standard - Dropped Bflat and Dropped B (C# standard)

On my Custom (25.5" scale) I use:
10's for Standard-Dropped D
11's for D standard - Dropped C
12's or 13's for C#/C standard -Dropped B/Bflat.

At my local music store there is a double neck white guitar, six string electric/baritone electric.

It's sick.

Doesn't contribute to the thread much, I think it's a cool guitar though.

I prefer baritones
Loose strings bother me
Baritones keep them nice and tight
