Ive been looking for data for a baritone build.   I have read a 26.67” scale helps to define the guitar as baritone.  Before I get down to this, I wondered if I could get the parameters, is scale…Continue

I am about to embark on making a Baritone resonator with a 27.5" scale, or maybe just 27". I will fashion the box from Sapele planks somehow, fit a pick-up of some devious design and have at it...... I have made a few other CBG's but this is the first resonator with a long neck, specifically for slide usage...!!! 15cm cone assembly

Built this for the Plumbers Challenge Build. It's a 27" scale Baritone 3 string. Uses the biggest low strings from a 6 string set (low E/A/D tuned D/A/D 1 octave low). I hacked a hand drill motor part to make the humbucking pickup. Made the git out of schedule 40 PVC pipe.

Thanks Blind Lemon Chello, I like yours too.

Just look on the thread "Short Scale Resonator Bass Build" in the discussion forum. On the last page at the bottom is the last pics I took. Just needs strings and a bridge.

Paul, very cool, can't wait to see pics, love my baritone!! Same 30" scale, 1 bass string, 3 tenor strings, 2 pups & outputs, open "F" tune, very nasty!!

Just joined the group. I came into possession of a 12" x 9" x 4" cookie tin and had some thick square table legs. So my plan is to build a 30" short scale Bass Resonator with 4 strings, a strip piezo for ukes and a P Bass pup.

I'll start a build thread soon.

I use the bottom of the Ernie Ball 6 string (Fender VI) set on mine which is 28"
Comment by Robert Killen on October 26, 2015 at 4:26am

Hi all.
Just finished my 5th build. I decided to double two Corojo No5s and string it up with the bottom 3 of a standard git set. I tuned it to D-A-D (a 4th below standard CBG tuning).

It sounds great. But I don't know what to call it. It doesn't have the short length of a tenor or the length of most baritones.

Any suggestions? Cheers!

Where is the best place to find string for a 3 stringer, 30" scale?
