    Default What is your favorite electric Baritone - 300-400 price range?? Thanks for ideas!

    Looking to get a new electric Baritone, around 300-400$. Researching and more researching and still can't decide....any Baritone players have advice?
    Considering the Lanikai Acacia; the new Kala Spruce-Ebony; Luna Zebrawood; Lanikai Maple. I think Pono's neck would be too thick for me.
    Thoughts or advice?

    Hi, I have the Kala Spruce Thinline that I really like! And it's the only one I have had. But I want something that I can plug in for performances and also to upgrade just a bit...and because UAS has hit lol

    Kala cedar top is a good one, just fit a pick up of your choice, (perhaps a MiSi).

    The Kala spruce/striped ebony cutout electric looks pretty good to me!

    As others are hinting at - if you want an electro acoustic - make your acoustic choice the prime thing - then get a decent pickup retro fitted. Choose he acoustic tone and playability first. Avoid pre-packaged electros as they mean compromises.

    For around 5 yr now, I’ve owned a Kala KA SBG, with a passive pu. Great baritone, absolutely love it. I think I paid around $300 total, Hard case and delivered. It’s my favorite uke, and I play out with it every week.

    When I got it, I had my reservations about the pu connection, lasting long haul. But it’s been great. Just simply a wonderful baritone.

    Mike, at UR, set it up perfectly. It’s also a beauty.
