The Baritone Model has vibrant sound!

Yes, James Goodall makes an incredible sounding baritone! It has such power and clear definition, one almost forgets the pitch is lower after playing or listening awhile. This instrument is especially treasured by guitarists who love to play in drop tuning and slack-key styles.

The Baritone includes a neck which has 14 frets clear to the body and a 28 inch string scale. With regular medium gauge strings they can be tuned one whole step down to D-G-C-F-A-D and drop tuned from there. Add a capo at the 2nd fret and it's a regular guitar. With slightly heavier custom gauge strings it can be pitched as low as say B, etc.

"the model which redefines drop tuning resonance"

We even offer a choice of two body sizes as well. Either a long Dreadnought with our herringbone 'Traditional' styling or the Jumbo body style with our regular appointments.
