Topic: Baritone Guitars
Has anyone here ever had any experience with baritone guitars? I was looking at a 27" scale baritone last weekend, which the owner had tuned B > B with heavier gauge strings, a full five steps below standard tuning. He was telling me that the added length caused greater string tension, so that the lower tuning doesn't sound floppy. It sounded very cool, but probably something geared more for heavy metal / shredding ... not my cup o' tea.
I wonder what would happen if a person put standard gauge strings on a baritone guitar, and tuned it to standard tuning. Would the strings break?
