Who's got a Squier Paranormal Baritone Cabronita? And what do you think of it?

Just bought one last night, Black Friday sale. I don't mind the B tuning and was thinking it could probably use the same sent of strings that are avaliable for the Reverend Descent giving you a non-wound 3rd string. I have the Reverend and it's scale is 26.75 I think. Something to consider.

I had two separate paranormal baritones. The later one, sunburst was horrible. Worst fret ends I’ve ever experienced.

I also had a black one from the original run which was better built but still a bit underwhelming. Sold both off.

If I ever went back to the baritone world, which I would consider, I don’t know that I’d give anything Squier another chance.

I replaced the factory spec strings on my Paranormal Cabronita baritone with a .010 -.046 set I use on all my guitars and tuned up to standard E tuning. The higher string tension with 27" scale compared to standard tele 25.5" scale makes a pretty darn twangy tele.

Could you post a sound sample? I’d love to hear it.

Are you still able to bend the G string up?
