> Well, my bariton scale Telecaster is not "low" (currently) but maybe you could see it as "unique" to tune it as a regular guitar despite the longer scale. I never thought about that way, I just tried regular E A D G B E tuning out of curiosity and since I happened to have a spare set of regulars - and am surprised how great it sounds this way! It doen't sound any bariton at all, just like a super Telecaster but with better intonation, better balansing of both frequencies and notes in a chord and finally much more prounounced fundamentals. So I'm wondering if anyone knows what mojo is at work here? My layman theory is that longer and thinner strings behave this way. Maybe it also has to do with the thin and high frets of this All-Parts neck? Both factors also applying to the Stick that executes these very same sonic characteristics. Just taking a guess here, I need to experiment more, also with normal bariton tuning (by
thicker strings) and compare.
