well, I have an old guitar, it only has four strings left (low E and the G B e) I was wondering if I could restring and tune it to be a baritone ukulele..
I just wondering if its impossible, before i start dismantling my guitar :D

A baritone uke is (usually) tuned exactly the same as the last four strings of your guitar... So just the D, G, B and high E.

So in this case you have one of the wrong strings left, and are missing a D, but it's easy enough just to replace. Nothing special needed. No dismanteling required. Just pop off the Low E and put a D on and you are good to go.

Still... Baritones are not that expensive. Maybe just pick up a cheapie?

Oh, and welcome aboard!
