Product Overview

Down-tuned richness complemented by two octave strings is a match made in heaven.

The BT-258E Deluxe 8-string Baritone offers a melodic layering of low-end harmony for enchanting , harp like sound. Combining Guild's historically large jumbo body shape and their legacy of pressed back construction, the BT-258E Deluxe 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 playing in an ensemble or for playing standalone.

This 8-string baritone is tuned B-E-a-A-d-D-F#-B, five steps down from a standard guitar. Deluxe appointments include rosewood back and sides, bound neck and body, Fishman GT-1 pickup system, and a perfectly glossed polyurethane finish.
