    I think im going to sell my MTD Z6 and buy one of these, but i dont know what one to check out.

    from what i can find theres only like...4!

    Italia
    Ibanez Signature
    ESP 7 string
    Fender Jag

    None of them seem to fit what i want.

    I want 6 strings, i want it to play great and have a full sound...400-600 dollars hopefully...

    the Fender Jag is badass.

    also, check out Schecter. the Hellcat VI may be up your alley (though not strictly a baritone), and there's the C-1 EX Baritone Blackjack.

    or, for something vintage and cool and mojo-riffic, look into some danelectros!

    Theres a company, and there name escapes me right now, that does basically knockoffs of guitars and basses that are no longer in production. They make a mosrite copy with a bigsby thats a baritone. Super sexy. I think its in that price range too.

    When you say 'baritone' what exactly do you want?

    There's the 27" scale guitars that are typically tuned B-B or A-A, but there's also the 29" to 30" ones that are tuned either E-E or A-A.

    I've had an OLP MM5 (copy of the Musicman Silhouette bass), which is in the latter category, for a few days now. It's good fun, but is a bit muddy in the lower registers, which I think is down to the pickups.

    I think the company that bluestarbass was thinking of might have been Eastwood.
