I believe that a case could be made, for the baritone guitar to be the true guitar - and the “normal” six string guitar its little brother! If you’ve ever played a baritone guitar, then you will already know what I mean.
To explain the depth of tone and timbre of these guitars on the printed page is pretty nigh impossible. They give the guitar player the opportunity to completely rethink their playing styles and techniques, and offer up a new challenge to even the most seasoned of guitar players. The Beltane can give you all of this and more, so if you're wanting a guitar to challenge your abilities, then look no further than The Beltane Baritone.
