High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The baritone guitar is a variation on the standard guitar, with a longer scale length that allows it to be tuned to a lower range. It first appeared in the classical music realm. The Danelectro Company was the first to introduce the electric baritone guitar in the late 1950s. Shortly after, Fender released the Bass VI which can be described as either a baritone guitar, or a bass guitar. The baritone guitar was not originally popular with players or listeners. However, the instrument began to appear in surf music, as well as background music for many movie soundtracks, especially spaghetti westerns. In more recent history, the baritone guitar has found use within rock and metal. Baritone guitars also have the capacity to be used as a bass guitar if strung correctly. A standard guitar's standard tuning is E A D G B E. Baritone guitars are usually tuned a perfect fifth lower , a perfect fourth lower, a major third lower or an octave lower. Gretsch, Fender, Gibson, Danelectro, Jerry Jones, Burns London and many other companies have produced baritone guitars since the 1960s, although always in small numbers due to low popularity.

The acoustic bass guitar (also called ABG or acoustic bass) is a bass instrument with a hollow wooden body similar to, though usually somewhat larger than a steel-string acoustic guitar. Like the traditional electric bass guitar and the double bass, the acoustic bass guitar commonly has four strings, which are normally tuned E-A-D-G, an octave below the lowest four strings of the 6-string guitar, which is the same tuning pitch as an electric bass guitar. Because it can be difficult to hear an acoustic bass guitar without an amplifier, even in settings with other acoustic instruments, most acoustic basses have pickups, either magnetic or piezoelectric or both, so that they can be amplified with a bass amp. Traditional music of Mexico features several varieties of acoustic bass guitars, such as the baja sexto, with six pairs of strings, and the guitarrón or chitarrone a very large, deep-bodied Mexican 6-string acoustic bass guitar played in Mariachi bands.
