Which Guitar to Choose

A customer recently was trying to decide between a fan fret Ibis and a Falcon baritone and he asked us “whether a fan fret Ibis vs. a Falcon would be the best option for CGCGCE tuning”.  So we turned to the expert – Michael Bashkin – for his perspective.

Michael’s response was “I would go with the Ibis and a med/heavy set of strings.  The Falcon is really a different concept and unless he wants a baritone I would not get it.  The baritone in designed to have the low E tuned to a B, so he would be tuning up which I don’t suggest, not to mention the longer scale.”
