XL Baritone PR now posted
A little too deep?
Perhaps, that's what I'm trying to figure out. Like I said earlier, I would only want to go down to A, which plenty of people already do. More over, I would primarily be using it for the step-down aspect of the other six strings (not that I wouldn't crank out some seriously heavy riffs on occasion on the low A string).
A seven just fits my hands so much better- as well as the way I like to anchor my picking hand. If I were never to play the bottom string and only play songs that could be played on a standard six, I would still prefer a seven.
The baritone might be perfect for tuning down to A. The only person I've talked to that actually has a 7-string baritone has it tuned to B with 9s and says it plays beautifully. We'll see. If it does play the way I want it to, Rich is going to have some more business in a month or two.
