    Baritone ball

    hey guys

    does EBMM make a baritone guitar? i know petrucci uses one on the Octavarium album. is the guitar set up any different? or is it just slung with strings approprate for a baritone tuning ( B E A D G B). pretty much the the first 6 strings of a 7 string. would the construction of it be the same as any other 6 string?

    cheers guys

    Yeah, the Silo 6 string bass is the baritone. It's not tuned like the first 6 strings out of a 7 string. It's set up like normal guitar tuning (EADGBE), but can be dropped down to whatever key you might want it in.

    They've got one of these at a local shop and I can't keep my hands off it - every time I'm in there I've got to play it a while... It's really cool - I'd pick it up if I had money instead of children...

    Guitars or Children?

    Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

    Well I can wait another 5 years until the 3 teenagers are all over 18 . . .

    Oh wait - College. Sh*t.

    I guess I won't have money for at least another decade

    Maybe I can get my grandchildren to buy me some EBMMs


    I'll have to try a silo bass if I can find one.
