    Which tuning do you use for tenor guitar? CGDA, GDAE, or DGBE (the latter like a standard bari uke)?

    It’s tuned in the usual baritone standard, DGBE.

    Hi Steve,

    Usually, I prefer fluorocarbon trebles, but these Aquila Lava strings seem to fit this baritone.

    Congrats, Hodge!

    That is a good looking baritone Hodge.......its has an organic feel and appearance . I like it and I agree with you about it encompassing a “Folk Instrument” vibe. A nice full sound with good note separation as well. I am usually not a fan of herringbone trim but I really like it on this instrument, a well executed design

    Wow, with a body that large, and being baritone scale, I'd expect that one to be among the loudest ukes ever. A cool and unique instrument!

    Beautiful Baritone and great sounding too.
    Congratulations.

    I've been quite impressed with Aquilla Strings on my baris.

    Usually I go for FCs.

    Thanks for nice comments everyone.

    This "Good Lookin" Gary Creed baritone, is fairly light. The top is so responsive, yet clear. Can't seem to overdrive it. It really does project and could be heard in a crowd (especially if I used the double piezo passive pickup inside). Definitely one of the biggest (maybe the biggest) volume ukes I have played. The sound board is the largest of any uke I've played, and all of that top is responding.

    Here's another pic.

    Love everything about this uke Hodge! Especially the cute matching dimples on the top, the size and most of all the sound. Really warm full sounding ~
    Talk less, play more . . . .
