I have one of the solid body PRS baris, purchased on sale the year before they introduced the semi-hollow (d'oh, that would have been the move). The build quality and neck are excellent. I thought it might work beautifully for my doom/drone band with two downtuned guitars and no bass...but no matter what pickups I tried, it just sounded too nu-metal to me with heavy fuzz.

I finally put alnico hum-sized P90s in it and find I much prefer it for cleaner tones. It's great for more subtle work...I would bet the semi-hollow kills for this purpose.

Yeah I honestly hate humbuckers for baritone use, the p90's just give it a ton more brightness and such. Really does the twangy country and doomy clean thing well

Exactly. Add a nice tremolo pedal, and I get lost in Earth "Hex"-style riffs for hours.
Special low-frequency version.

Just bought colossus' 28" scale, reverse headstock DC Kunkle conversion neck! Stoked!
So this:

Will soon be on this:

Not sure if I'm going to tune it to B-B or A-A or get weird with AEADEA (the guitar is currently tuned to DADGAD)

What kind of bridges are you guys using in baritone builds? The low E keeps popping out of mine

So I don't think I've seen any baritones at my local music store (or really anything reasonably priced [$1,800 for a red knob Twin?!?!]), but I've been kinda swinging between the Squier Jazzmaster Baritone and the Danelectro Baritone, any words/opinions on the two? Any owners of a BLK/TRI LITS wanna chime in on how they'd work in the Jazzmaster Baritone?

Where do you guys find these DC Kunkle necks? Are they still around? All I see when i search for them are expired reverb or eBay links. I Was thinking of one for a tele build I'm slowly getting pieces for.

I found my DC Kunkle neck on here. It was a pretty lucky find, I absolutely love how it feels.

And I am a big fan of Dano guitars. I own a 56 U2 Pro Reissue and it sounds great. I've only ever played the baritone version unplugged, but I assume the lipsticks would sound amazing with a baritone

Yea I was pretty much going on Pinebender (though Clark plays a Jerry Jones) vs the Haunt Technical Demo
