Acoustic Baritone Guitar

The acoustic Baritone

The baritone steelstring guitar gives you an intense feeling from the low registers. This guitar will expand your musical horizon. So you can reach the very lower regions. The tuning is regular but the 6th string is a B or even an A. But feel free to use other open tunings. You will be surprised.
The woods
I used a cedar top, excellent choice for this type of instruments. The sides have a double construction, maple inside and rosewood outside.  The back is also double.  So the body is very stiff for great projection and an excellent sustain. I really love the combination Rosewood and a cedar top.
The neck is mahogany with two ebony inlays. Also an option for a maple neck. I used a raised fingerboard, that gives stiffness over the whole fingerboard.
12 String Baritone
The baritone is also possible in a 12 string version. This will give you the lower sonic world in combination with a wide range of overtones.

Custom fretless baritone

A custom made fretless baritone. Client’s  wish was: “ I have some ideas from my time of playing baroque and late renaissance music on a standard nylon, jazz on a semi-acoustic 'fat electric', some Django on a Selmer style, blues on a steel baritone, and Turkish music on an oud. I feel there's a fusion waiting to be properly enabled by an instrument like this. Something for a lifetime of exploration, and probably a few more by passing it to others.”




I love to make your dream come truth
I’m always interested in musicians with new ideas. It is a great challenge to find a concept that helps. So we talked and mailed several times. A great idea was born: A Gypsy like body, a baritone fretless to open the world to the micro tones. And a midi pickup special for acoustic instruments as the cello. Richard McClish from RMC music was very helpful to find the right pickup and pre amp.
