I'm starting to plan my next guitar. I'm thinking of doing a 4-string baritone set up for BEAD tuning. Basically, take a 7 and throw away the high 3 strings (actually, I wast thinking of making a cigarbox-type guitar with the extra strings). Design ideas so far: The top one is similar to my last design. The bottom is a radical departure. No idea how practical it is. Trying to make an ergonomic guitar look more metal. Note the controls (volume knob, a couple of switches for the pickups) will be on the front edge, down far enough so they don't interfere with playing. THat's my plan anyway.
