    There are several places selling baritone conversion necks for Strats and Tele's out there...USACG/Warmoth/WD, etc.

    Anybody here use one??

    I know the scale is around 28 or so inchs, what kind of tuning can you get with that...I assume around B is possible.

    Does it really give you a bari like tone or does it just sound like a detuned guitar?

    Thanks!

    BTW...post pics if you got 'em...maybe it'll push me over the edge!

    I'm using the BEADF#B tuning. Sounds pretty baritone to me. It sure can give you that spaghetti western twang!

    I have a warmoth conversion neck on a generic strat body (heck, it's prolly a squier).

    I have rio grande pickups innit.

    I have been able to tune all the way down to G, but it starts getting a little floppy down there - A is better.

    On the bridge pickup, it's got a great nashville baritone sound.
