Just got this- bought a Fender conversion baritone neck from their website; originally planned on replacing the neck on one of my Teles; then spotted this loaded lefty Tele body on ebay and voila!

Tuning is A D G C E A
Strings are 72-13

Nice! I've always been tempted to get a baritone.

A lefty tele strung righty? So that wins for oddest thing I've seen in a while. :lol:

I suppose a baritone tele would be good for this:

I always thought that was one of the coolest sounds I ever heard from the country music realm.

I've attempted to approximate it through my Rockerverb 100 mk3 using the clean channel with an old EHX Deluxe Electric Mistress set to filter mode to goose the mids, an EHX Pitch Fork to tune down, and a Catalinbread Talisman plate reverb in the loop for reverb.

Cool! Not a country guy myself but I'll try learning that!

Very easy to play. With a baritone it's not like I'll be going way up on the neck. I think...

Didn't see that post!!!!!
Looks very cool!!! Does the extra l9ng neck make it back heavy?

I had a guitar tuned to C standard for a while, that was really fun to play. I bet the baritone would sound pretty different though- would love to try it!!!!

It's a little neck heavy but that would be expected since the strap point on a flipped over lefty is lower than normal...
