"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…"
"I am liking it..I do find i have to look at fretboard more often while playing, longer scale throws off my finger positions. Otherwise, I am not have the problems i expected with my weak fingers and the heavier strings..."
"pictures in Baritone Group and my page.
Well is a bit longer and too much wider.
We tried a couple Jumbo/SuperJumbo/Archtop cases at store..all were too narrow at lower bout :(

"Once I did a ton of work to guitar to end having it sound dead and lifeless. I found the bottom of the saddle wasn't flat, it was tapered front to back, only contacting the top on a thin line. Sanding it perfectly flat made a huge…"

G'day from Australia. Hey I just paid $600 Australian (about $780US) for a beautiful Alvarez MD90CD but think I might of been "had" according to a bloke here who said they are not worth much $'s. Could I ask your opinion please. I know guitars are worth what the player thinks of them but I bought it for my daughter for an investment and think the seller was dodgy to say the least. Just " a ballpark figure" would be most appreciated. I'm a pensioner who has to be careful with all things money related. If it's not worth the money then I need to look at my options so to speak. I hope I'm not out if line or anything but I'm new at all this stuff! Thanks for your time,
From Pugs(Paul). Cheers
