    I've just added some thunder to my musical palette with the addition of a baritone Tele.

    Neck is Allparts,frets levelled,crowned and polished. Bone nut cut.

    Body is Swamp Ash.

    Pickup is one of Rob's fine Fat Lion,wired to a 3 way switch.I love this one.

    Scratch guard is walnut burl.

    That's about it. It's had a quick setup,now I'll play it for a while and tweak where necessary.

    Seriously,y'all need one of these in your weapon stash!

    Nice. Baritones are big fun!

    Recently a guy put a Jerry Jones on reverb for ~$2700 and the prices have gone crazy!

    OMG, I just started 2 Esquire bodies. I have wanted a baritone forever. But I was leaning towards the Danelectro 66B. :confused::confused::confused::confused: That is gorgeous. Have at it! Is that neck a 29" or longer?

    ooo, this is nice. Classy. Normally I don't like gold hardware but it absolutely works on this.

    I've got my Bass VI set up and tuned more like a baritone guitar and my playing is totally different than in standard tuning. Great for breaking out of a rut.

    Beautiful. I really need to get off my *ahem* and put a baritone together. After all, I have one of these:

    ...and one of these:

    How can I not do it?

    That's a sharp baritone. Mine is a tele partscaster too. Warmoth neck (28 5/8 scale), alder body with two single coil p/us. It's one of those essential sounds.

    It's a 28" scale neck,fits straight on any Tele body.

    I had to wait so long for the Allparts neck (in the UK) I almost bit for a Dano myself! They make fine baritones.

    Really nice job! Never played a baritone, but I'll have to see if I can find one to try.

    I've always wanted a Tele Bajo Sexto, but even the MiJ ones are pricey. Nice build!

    My first guitar was this 1956 Danelectro. Probably the most recorded guitar I own.

    My next was a parts caster... 1962 Bass VI "A" neck, 1970s body, 1970s WRHBs, and some parts in between!
