    Ryan Bruce's Baritone Axis SuperSport

    I've seen a couple pictures of this guitar in the last few days and its exactly the kind of high quality USA-made baritone that doesn't exist on the market currently and that I have been trying to find for ages. Inevitably when something like this shows up its a one-off for an artist which is frustrating because the only options for regular folks tend to be exclusively lower end imports. What would it take for this to come to market in a way where I can buy one? Would a dealer need to be willing to preorder a substantial number to get the interest of folks at the company? It seems to me that there is a market for baritone 6 strings at the market from folks who tune down but aren't interested in a 7/8/9 string guitar. I've read that interest in the JP Baritone wasn't strong but it was also a top tier BFR at a high price point. Something like what is shown in this video would be much likelier to sell IMO. Thoughts anyone?

    Cool baritone Axis!

    So, Tim is pictured with an orange crush Stingray in that video - that too is interesting!

    I had a Silhouette bari a bunch of years ago before baritones became my main instruments and it was a beast. A bit too long scale for what I do now but that was such a well-made and comfortable instrument because of the design that made it no longer than a regular guitar. So many baris and anything based on the usual 28 5/8" conversion necks have necks so long that its uncomfortable to play because the bridge stays in the same place. The Axis seems like a perfect design for 27" scale because of the body design and bridge placement. Keeps the whole instrument manageable.

    Spalted Valentine
    Looks like burl maple with Fishman pickups.
    If that guitar was available with the black hardware and stock pickups, also black, I’d buy one today.

    Unfortunately, we have no immediate plans to manufacture an Axis baritone guitar for regular production. However, keep an eye on our social media channels for any new products and updates.

    That Axis is more like an Axis Sport: no binding, a little more rounder edges. They should make this a production model in standard scale. Would sell like crazy I guess..
