Well, it's that time of year again, time for a birthday treat, and I've been awfully good this year...

So I talked one of my retail partners who also sells EGC into doing a trade with me... after several days of work and many Elements, lookie what I earned...
EGC baritone.JPG


30" scale baritone tuned to low A, single coil pickers, shiny aluminum everywhere. It sounds unlike any guitar I've ever heard, so big and deep and rich and clear and bright and just so powerful with so much sustain... it's deeply moving. I'll be a huge fanboy for life now.

It has the thin neck and I love it, perfect for these huge frets. I'm really blown away by this thing... already planning on having Kevin put an aluminum neck on last year's birthday Jazzmaster...

So thank you to all you guys who fueled my EGC fires, I love you for it!

I'd love to do a shiny pedal! Our powder coater guys actually have a pretty neat looking chrome they can do but we've been too chicken to try it out since we don't really know what it'll be like.. could rule though.

tarpitman, are you going for the style on the right or left? And your slab of wood will be like the one on the left? I did that with my guitar too, haha, had a pic of it up for over a month!

its a mixture of the two. RD style body with german carve on left side of body only, and block inlays (on the right) and the stained wood finish with pickguard (on the left). nothing special about the electronics. i thought about doing some jazz/jag style switches, but i just wanna keep this one simple and see how much i like it. if i am as enthralled as i am hoping and expecting to be, i will be a returning customer, and probably will get a guitar similar to Kurt Ballous (pictured below)

its so those last three strings are the only ones affected by the bigsby. he also has a few guitars with octave strings only on those last three.
