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

Hi all,I just joined up and am looking forward to building some instruments! I thought I might start with a 3 or 4 string baritone strung with strings for a Fender bass VI (or Jaguar Baritone). Any…Continue
I will be following along.
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
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.
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.
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!
