Corvette Baritone

I want this.

But who doesn't tune before a demo video?

And who opens a demo video with a shot of laundry on the floor?

Still, I want this. Were I stateside, I would bid!

Man, that thing sounds great.

If it were left-handed, I'd be in the hunt.

Making a Guitar/Pickup/Amp Demo

I had one of those in "project" form. I never finished it, because the neck was of horrible quality, and had a weird profile and frets popping up all over. I bought it chea and sold it cheaper.

Add me to the "want" category, but I'm definitely not needing another guitar these days.

I'm almost positive the seller is a member here.

26 1/2 " scale is pretty short for a Baritone. a Selmer style Jazz guitar is almost that long, and tuned standard.

I want this too. In fact if it had been finished in a tastefully tinted transparent lacquer I'd be all over it.

Seems a shame to have a one-piece Honduran Mahogany -essentially unobtainable now- body and paint it.

But yeah...pretty darn cool.

I think the builder wanted to keep it looking historically correct. Old Corvettes didn't come tinted clear. He called it a "what if" model.

As for the scale length, unless he was going to move the bridge back and lose the Bigsby the neck would have had to get long and the guitar would start looking imbalanced.
