Baritone Guitars

Baritone guitars feature a scale length and tuning between a standard guitar and a bass guitar. Baritones are 6-string fretted instruments usually tuned B, E, A, D, F#, B (with the 5th string E matching the 6th string E on a standard guitar), with a scale length of around 27-inches. The longer scale length keeps the low-tuned strings at the right tension, and also provides for a full, fat tone. Most baritones are electric, although there have been acoustic versions as well.
