Last October I bought a Squier Stagemaster 7 hardtail out of a local pawnshop. https://www.squier-talk.com/threads/ngd-squier-2000-stagemaster-7ht-v2-7-in-blue-number-5.176326/ I was cruising through You Tube and ran across this: I decided to stretch the neck to 28" and make a baritone out of her. I contacted the luthier in South Africa - Hayward Guitars ie Graeme Hayward and ordered the 28.0" 25 fret Stagemaster baritone neck. Yep, 25 frets!!! https://www.facebook.com/HaywardCustomGuitars/ Graeme does fantastic work. COVID delayed the shipping for quite some time but it was well worth the wait. Shipping from South Africa is reasonable and I would not hesitate to order another neck from Graeme I put the neck on the blue Covidia body and then had to wait again. DiMarzio wasn't shipping the DiMarzio pickups I wanted (Titan 7 bridge and PAF 7 neck in creme). COVID. Well, they finally came in so I could finish the guitar. https://www.dimarzio.com/pickups/7-string/titan-7-bridge https://www.dimarzio.com/pickups/7-string/paf-7 A "normal" baritone 6 string has the lowest string tuned to B. If it were a 7 string the lowest string would be F#. I decided to tune down a 1/2 step so that makes the lowest string a F and the 6th string a Bb or F/Bb - "Drop F". That is low - it's in bass country. I use 0.014-0.080 strings: 1 Bb 0.014 2 F 0.018 3 Db 0.026 4 Ab 0.036 5 Eb 0.049 6 Bb 0.064 7 F 0.080 The DiMarzio pickups really do a great job with this neck. Body: I need to sand off the Jimi decal and try a newer one. Not sure why this one turned milky when hit by the lacquer. Rather than use the original Squier tuners, I used a set of Gotohs. Brown's Guitar Mill in Newnan is making a double cut body for the original 25.5" neck, TOM bridge, string thru set up. Should be fun! I re-named this guitar "Barry-Flat". It is a gas to play.
