One of Gold Tone’s many Folkternative instruments, the GBG Baritone guitar can add a new dimension of sound to your music. Gold Tone’s acoustic-electric cutaway baritone guitar has a 29 and 1/16″ scale and is tuned a fifth lower (ADGCEA) or a fourth lower (BEADF?B) than a standard guitar. The GBG’s precision-gauged strings compensate for the lower tuning so that string tension is similar to that of a standard dreadnaught acoustic guitar. The internal bracing structure under the select-grade solid Sitka spruce top is specially designed for maximum volume and projection. Mahogany back and sides contribute to the guitar’s excellent bass response. The radiused ebony fingerboard matches the ebony bridge that’s fitted with a genuine bone saddle. The slim-line neck is only two millimeters deeper at the twelfth fret than it is at the second fret. Any necessary neck-set adjustments can be done with ease due to an innovative design utilizing two bolts in the heel AND two bolts to attach the fretboard to the body (rather than a glue joint). An onboard electronics system (comprised of a condenser mic, a bridge pickup and a blending preamp) is standard equipment on the GBG. A hard shell case is included.
