"Treebeard" - a baritone guitar





 

"Treebeard" is a baritone guitar with 735mm (approximately 29") scale length and a rich deep tone that makes the hairs stand up on the back of your neck! With its long scale, this guitar will tune down to A-A, but its best range is C-C and the various open tunings from this base. It is a lot more easy to play than you think and is perfect for fingerstyle using open tunings - especially with the option of multi-scale. The guitar shown is my own European Spruce/Brazilian Rosewood "Treebeard" with 720-735mm multi-scale and a Manzer style wedge and here's a recording of me playing Martin Simpson's arrangement of "McCrimmons Lament" in Bb F Bb Eb F Bb tuning.
