oh my, i forgot to post here. I've having problems with the combination of longer scale and lack of fret markers on the Baritone, Because of my double-vision problems side markers don't work well for me.

I decide to do something about that.

I'm going to look at an Alvarez 5041 tomorrow, another CraigsList find.  All the ones I've seen online are 1980 to 1982.

Does anyone have one?  Comments?
