Comments about Ibanez AELBT1 Acoustic-Electric Baritone Guitar:

If you have a lower voice range and would like to play in more of the original fret voicing as you sing, this is a great solution. To tune it with a low C# in standard tuning, I put on some D'Addario EJ18 heavy gauge strings(.014 - .059) so there would not be too much tension on the neck. It sounds great. Most baritones tune with a low B which is not ideal for me. If want standard guitar I just capo on 3 yet I can drop a minor 3rd if needed for my voice on some arrangements. It's like doing a reverse capo 3.

    Comments about Ibanez AELBT1 Acoustic-Electric Baritone Guitar:

    I love this guitar. It's everything I hoped it would be. The lower tuning adds a nice dimension to the music. Doubling up with a regular acoustic, I fell in love with it even more. I would recommend this guitar to anyone.

      Comments about Ibanez AELBT1 Acoustic-Electric Baritone Guitar:

      I played the Taylor GT6 and then the newer 326 and their sound was great on the top 4 strings. Both had a very flat low volume on the 5th and 6th string so I chose the Ibanez at one fourth the price. The Ibanez does not have the crisp sound on the upper strings of the Taylor, but the lower two sound way better. Plugged in it sounds wonderful. The action is a little high and GuitarCenter does not support new sales for adjusting the action, but I will take care of that. The bigger strings take a little getting used to, but I really like the concept of playing songs in a different key. Capo on the second fret and it still sounds good. The finish and construction are great. Beautiful looking guitar.
