Baritone or 7 string?

Postby Brian Evans » Wed Jul 04, 2018 8:15 am

I'm pondering my next project. I want to continue to explore the bass response that I got with my last archtop, with the sound hole in the upper bout and side a-la Ken Parker's instruments. I'm thinking a 27.5" or 28" scale baritone, tuned A-A, or a 7 string 25" or 25.5" scale with a low A string, upper six strings tuned E-E. What would you choose?
