I am here to tell you, friends, that this is one serious instrument we've got here. 27 1/2 inches of gutteral moan. Play this guitar and you'll know what it feels like to be ten feet tall.
A player isn't likely to play the baritone for the whole gig, but it makes a big impression on the numbers you'll use it on.
An eighth inch thick book-matched Lauro Preto Rosewood veneer cap sits on a bed of 3/8" Black Walnut, then more Rosewood.
Under that is a 1 inch thick semi-hollow Alder core, backed with book-matched curly Maple.
That's a helluva sandwich!
Then there's the incredible Birdseye Maple fretboard (with Padauk dots), 22 jumbo frets, bone nut and 2-way adjustable trussrod.
At 27 1/2 inches, it's scale is about two frets longer than a Les Paul, but it is tuned five frets lower, to B.
This is one of the shorter baritones, you'll find, and it doesn't feel too much different than a regular guitar, but it has so much power. A customer with my TG-250 baritone says it's like playing a small piano.
This was recorded with a 27 1/2 inch baritone version of my TG-250, but you'll get an idea of the power and richness of a longer scale guitar.
All three solos were done with the baritone, with backing from the Shorty Joe Bass and my "grab 'n go" TG-250 no.158.
Again, grab your axe and play along in B.
