    NGD- Real Men Play 14s

    NGD- Real Men Play 14s-pxl_20201226_234534874-jpg
    Squire Paranormal Cabronita Baritone

    Fender p90-ish pickups
    27" scale
    7 and change pounds
    9.5" radius
    Narrow Tall fretwire

    THE GOOD:
    neck is nice - frets are level and not jaggy ends
    Super light
    Pickups sound good
    Tuners are ok
    Nut is cut well

    The Bad
    The bridge kinda is meh I may swap it out for something better.
    its noisy I am going to try an shield it a bit.
    Would like a bit flatter fingerboard.
    14-68 strings are too much - even when tuned to Bflat I am going to drop down to 12's or maybe 11s

    I kept seeing these pop up on youtube and thought they sounded pretty interesting. I added it to my reverb list and had a few pop up but a shop about an hour from me had 3 so I messaged them to see if they would deal if I picked up and they did so I picked it up. They guy that owned the store said he ordered them in April and he wish he had ordered more.

    It was pretty cheap and I am going to mod it a bit I think. I have been wanting to make an engraved brass pickguard so I may do that. Will probably upgrade pickups and bridge

    yeah shitty fender 14s are not my first choice. I honestly dont know why they went so overkill on the string gauge.

    Probably loved the tension he got on his 24.75" scale guitar with 14s, but wanted way more tension with the same string gauge and same tuning.

    (I actually have no idea)

    I never understood why people put THICKER strings on a baritone scale guitar. The whole point is so you can use lighter strings but get the same tension as thicker strings. I think maybe marketing language is to blame as a lot of companies have a super chonky string gauge set that they label as a "baritone" set (referring to tuning rather than scale length) and people assume they're meant for a long scale guitar.
