    "It depends" . . . only trick is that most guitar necks are radiused and most bari necks aren't.

    If you have one on-hand it won't hurt to try.

    There's lots of history behind it, but the bottom line is that with modern tuning it's arbitrary.

    Guitar players prefer sharps, so I tend to write F# for the band...
