    Baltimore ... or Bawlmer, or Bawlamer or B'Mo or Bmore. Take your pick.

    I have been playing stringed instrumnts for a long time. Mostly guitar, some banjo, mandolin, dulcimer, and I even pluck at my wife's cello once in a blue moon.

    I have been lurking on the edge of the bass/baritone guitar world and am about to make the leap.

    I actually ordered a short scale bass last week, but that didn't quite work out. MF had a blowout on the Daisy Rock Retro H bass (30 inch scale, 2 mini HB's, semi-hollow - for $100 shipped).

    I was planning on re-stringing it to ADGC (piccolo style). I have been playing mostly acoustic guitar recently and a lot fo the forms and patterns I have been falling into have been on the lower 4 strings, so I figured I would stick with the patterns and just add some ooomph.

    Well today MF refunded my money. Order cancelled. Item no longer available. I guess it was too good a deal to be true.

    So I find myself in status interruptus, ready to play but no new toy to play with.

    Now I'm back to considerin'.

    Should I go with a baritone guitar, and what scale 30 or 28 OR should I stick with my original idea and tweak a 4 string SS bass?

    And of course which instrument - Hellcat VI, Eastwood Sidejack, OLP MM5, Washburn WI44, Ibanez MMM-1, SX SJB-75, Dean EVO XM, Gretsch Electromatic, etc.

    So here I am, pestering you with questions that have been asked a thousand times before. But ain't that my job as a Noob?
