Just Pulled Off A Deal For One Of These!
« on: September 18, 2015, 12:25:33 PM »


An SG Baritone.  It has an over-sized body to compensate for the 27 inch scale neck, 24 frets, Ceramic magnet pups, nitrocellulose finish,  hard shell Gibson case, with the strings set up as B,E,A,D,F#,B.  I've wanted a Baritone guitar since I traded off my Fender Bajo Sexto Telecaster.  It's currently in a GC in Maryland, and ships to me today!

Pretty!  I've always liked white SGs.  A friend of mine had a double-neck SG in arctic white.

With that extra long scale neck, I wonder if it is more neck heavy than a normal SG?  I've never played a baritone.  Must be a trip to play in that lower register.

They made the body over-sized to compensate for the extra neck weight.  You have to be able to transpose to be able to play it.  An open A chord actually sounds E, and so forth.  You hear them all the time in the old Motown stuff, for example Aretha Franklin''s "Chain Of Fools" is all baritone guitar and bass, with no regular guitar parts at all.  Jimmy Vaughn is playing one a lot on the Fabulous Thunderbird's stuff.

Schweet!

Transposing on the fly is so much fun!
Does anyone ever read these things.  I have some guitars, some amps and some effects but none of them play the guitar for me.... Yet.

I got pretty good at it when I had my Tele Bajo.  I can stick to the tunes I already know on it and use it enough, but I'm sure I'll be adding to the repertoire.  I do plan on taking it to some jams, however, so that might get fast and furious!

It has arrived!  There's a big box at GC waiting for me to come and get it, so I'm on my way out the door!

:yay!:

BOOM!
It surpasses all expectations, and I've got to say, the pictures don't do it justice at all!  I so happy!

It's nitrocellulose lacquer, so it will definitely do that.
