Walden Guitars is coming out with a Baritone the first of the year 2013 that will bridge the gap between the two price ranges and it's a tremendous value for the guitar. Played one at the NAMM last summer and it sounded great…"
"I have a baritone CLASSICAL guitar tuned B to B and made by Len Laviolette in San Diego. It uses the standard nylon strings by moving each string down one position, and adding a .056 string as the low B. This works because the strings are still…"
"I'm waiting to hear from my local guitar dealer for the arrival of the Alvarez ABT60 Baritone. For those of us on a tight budget, we have no choice but to go cheaper -- or wait basically forever, since a $2,000 guitar is beyond reach. As a…"
"My favorites are (1) Wingert; (2) Martin; (3) Mustapick; (4) Taylor -- in that order.
I do not like once that are basically altered bass guitars with six strings. Tried several inexpensive ones and quickly realized that you get what you pay…"
"There are a number of firms which do make some baritones, but most are higher end instruments. That is probably influenced by lower demand and the fact that most folks come to the baritone after having played a regular 6 for some years. Tacoma…"

"Hi joe_n I've uploaded a quicktime player (.mov) video to rapidshare for you. It's about 26MB but willl only take about 5 mins to download. Choose 'free user' and then wait 60 seconds and then download.
It's just a video of…"
"Hi joe n
will try and put a bit of the yairi up on youtube or I'll record an mp3.
But basically with a set of exp23's on the guitar it is significantly louder than any regular eadgbe steel strung guitar on the planet and has a piano like…"
Would it be possible to hear the YB-1 played acoustically only? Do you know of a YouTube video, or any good online file of reasonable quality where this guitar is played acoustically? I, too, am thinking of buying a baritone, but have…"
"Thanks for the advice Steve.
I managed to find a second hand mint condition K.Yairi YB-1 Jumbo Baritione Acoustic and got a B-Band pick up fitted. The instrument is beautifully made and is the loudest acoustic guitar I have ever heard!
It will take…"
