I'm really stoked with the new Baritone guitar I got the other day. When I started playing guitar again five years ago after having dropped the instrument from my life many years ago I struggled to find satisfaction with the noises I was making. I wasn't gifted with dexterity, but I am relentless. Once I discovered open tunings I found I could more easily get through a practice period and make some music that was tolerable because the open tunings opened up the neck for my large, clumsy hands. Open tunings may not be as versatile as standard tuning is, but they do have their own charms, and once I liked more of what I was hearing I ended up playing more and my skill increased. What I've discovered with the baritone is that the long scale neck also opens up the chord shapes for me and allows for cleaner tones. And playing in an open tuning on a baritone has been very satisfactory. The guitar is beautiful- a real step up from their older version inho. I chose the model with no bigsby because I haven't found myself using the bigsby much (at all, lol.) I like the way bigsbys sound, but haven't mastered the technique yet. I look for real clean tones when I play and I love the rich, resonant tones I'm getting through my Vox. Here's my new Baritone and my favorite resonator.
