What We Think

 

What It Does

The craftsmanship, playability, and wide range of tones produced by Goodall Guitars is truly amazing. The TMhB Baritone model is no exception. It produces powerful highs and clearly defined lows.  One almost forgets the pitch is lower after playing or listening awhile. This instrument is especially treasured by guitarists who love to play in drop tuning and slack-key styles.

 

Tuning

This Goodall Baritone guitar can be tuned a variety of ways.  We prefer one whole-step lower than standard tuning, making the lowest string a D. Add a capo at the 2nd fret and you’re in standard tuning. With slightly heavier custom gauge strings it can be pitched as low as a B.

 

Appearance

This is one of the nicest baritone guitars we’ve ever seen.  This guitar has Honduran Mahogany Back and Sides and a AAA Bearclaw Sitka Spruce Top. We especially like the bear claw aspect of this guitars top.  It gives the guitar a gnarled look that sets it apart from the average spruce top.

 

Overtones

Goodall must have a magic formula for overtones.  This guitar, like all Goodall guitars,  produces tons of overtones. Hearing these tones over the clear low end notes is a euphoric experience for your ears.  You won’t want to put this guitar down and it will amaze traditional dreadnought players with it’s unbelievably clear, low voicing.

Manufacturer's Description from Goodall

Yes, James Goodall makes an incredible sounding baritone! It has such power and clear definition, one almost forgets the pitch is lower after playing or listening awhile. This instrument is especially treasured by guitarists who love to play in drop tuning and slack-key styles.

The Baritone includes a neck which has 14 frets clear to the body and a 28 inch string scale. With regular medium gauge strings they can be tuned one whole step down to D-G-C-F-A-D and drop tuned from there. Add a capo at the 2nd fret and it's a regular guitar. With slightly heavier custom gauge strings it can be pitched as low as say B, etc.

We even offer a choice of two body sizes as well. Either a long Dreadnought with our herringbone 'Traditional' styling or the Jumbo body style with our regular appointments.
