My experience with low GCEA (but not the Guadalupe) was that it was an interesting sound for fingerpicking but strummed was pretty muddy. There again, this was on a Rogue baritone so your mileage may definitely vary

Yes, good for fingerpicking, muddy when strummed. Certainly true on a baritone. I imagine more muddy on a tenor.

Search here for "octave ukulele." Search YouTube as well.

I loved the Guadalupe strings when I had them on my baritone.
After I purchased a Cordoba Mini and a couple of other baritone-sized guitars I restrung my baritone to DGBE. At least for now.

I wonder if the Guadalupe DGBE strings are designed for a regular baritone pitch, or for an octave down from that.

I guess it's possible, but I really can't imagine they would be octave down as that would put them lower than guitar tuning.
