    What? There wasn’t already one? That seems odd...

    Anyway, @SecretSquirrel wondered it there was one, and I searched, and couldn’t find one. Now there is one. I personally don’t have a baritone, but I do have a neck and body, and maybe a few of you out there sharing your baritones will stoke my boiler and I’ll get them put together.

    I’ll play but have an interesting array of long scale guitars:

    1. My Dano is actually a Bass VI, 30-inch scale length and tuned E-E.
    2. My Thinline Baritone, 28.625-inch scale length (Warmoth neck) and tuned B-B.
    3. My Bigsbycaster which uses a Fender Baritone neck (27-inch scale length) but I’ve got it strung with 11s and tuned E-E.

    The Thinline qualifies me to join the club but the other two are really fun to play, interesting guitars.

    :) Peter

    Oh, I think all of them qualify. No sense being too narrow-minded about “baritone.” My Danelectro neck is 29.75” and I will probably do E-E if I can, partly to lessen the stress on that old body, and to lessen the stress on my old brain.

    When you say E-E on your Bigsbycaster, is that an octave down? 27” is about as short as a bari neck can be, isn’t it?

    ‘Normal’ 440 E-E. Heavy 11s. Sounds awesome!

    I'm in, thanks. Looking forward to seeing all the cool baritones!

    Here's my partscaster I completed last year—Warmoth neck (28 5/8" scale length), GFS poplar body (weird finish by me), Artec lipstick humbuckers:

    Man, this thread is making me want a Tele Deluxe or Custom with a conversion neck. Maybe a Bigsby...


    I tune the Dano reissue (30" scale) A-A, and would encourage others to try it, you can play songs exactly the same and be adding a harmony part a fifth below the rest of the band.

    Not to pick nits (as all good nit-picking posts should start) but 440 Hz is the frequency of the A at the 14th fret of the G string. Standard tuning for guitar starts with an 82 Hz low E string, and standard tuning for bass (and Bass VI) starts with a 41 Hz low E.

    All the nit-picking aside, I bet the 27" scale Tele with Bigsby sounds like thunder!
