Guild

Description

The BT-258E Deluxe 8-String Baritone from Guild offers a melodic layering of low-end harmony for an enchanting, harp-like sound. The BT-258E boasts a deep, full-frequency Baritone voice complemented by two octave strings for added sparkle. The arched rosewood back projects whole, low frequencies, while the solid spruce top ensures the high frequency, octave strings blend in gorgeously for a symphonic tone. The low end is great for filling in an ensemble or for playing standalone. The 8-string baritone is tuned B-E-a-A-d-D-F♯-B, 5 steps down from a standard guitar. Additional features include rosewood back and sides, Sitka spruce top and a mahogany neck with "C" profile.
