THE 2018 6 STRING BARITONE ROUNDUP (27.5" & UP) • BO/011 

Going lower in 2018 looks pretty Awesome. A whopping 18 models, between 27.5" and 30" in scale that can take you lower today.  

As per usual, we’re only looking at production 6 string baritones that are at least 27.5” or longer in scale length. 27.5” or longer because (again) we wanna tune to at least Drop G with decent tension and intonation.  

So here they are in order of shortest to longest scale:
