    Actually, I talked to Bob Taylor at the NAMM show the year before they
    released their Baritone, and Taylor then told they had no baritone plans. I
    already had this prototype in my closet when I asked him.

    That sounds promising! Elixir strings changed everything for me. I like the
    polywebs over the nanowebs, but still! I have an old Silvertone that I have
    strung Nashville right now, maybe I’ll try this baritone business!

    Yes it is definitely an adult guitar! In a movie if you hear this thing you
    know something bad is about to happen.

    That’s a good question. I’ve never tried that, but I would assume you are
    correct in that, um, assumption as all baritone guitars acoustic and
    electric guitars have longer scales. Though I did just recently play a
    mini, very short scale bass at Guitar Center that was tuned normal but with
    very fat, rubbery strings.

    Would there be any intonation problems with putting very heavy gauge
    strings on a normal acoustic guitar and tuning it like a baritone? Is the
    longer scale just to better suit the low tuning but not necessarily to
    correct intonation issues?

    That’s an acoustic with huge balls! Awesome sound, even for youtube, must
    be amazing in person.

    Baritones are a blast to play and a great recording tool. I made mine from
    a Yamaha guitar FGX730SC that was just begging to be a baritone. The guitar
    came alive when it was drop tuned with standard strings. I put the heaviest
    acoustic strings I could buy and drop tuned it to B. It has played
    perfectly without string rattle. I’m using Elixir Nanoweb 13′s. I’ll post a
    video on the conversion. Always wanted a Taylor GT8 but I can’t spend the
    money with three dependents in college.
