Artist GM1BARI Baritone Electric Guitar with Bullbuckers

By popular demand, our Artist Grungemaster has undergone a transformation: introducing our Grungemaster Baritone! The Grungemaster is one of our most popular models, and due to fantastic customer feedback and a huge amount of interest, we are proud to introduce the slightly-altered Baritone version! 

With the same Poplar body, Canadian Maple Neck and Eco-Rosewood Fretboard, this model of course features a longer, 27" scale-length and new Dot inlays on the fretboard. We’ve chosen our very popular Bullbucker pickups for this guitar, and their broad, throaty response is perfect for lower frequencies. We’ve also altered the controls and control plate, and we’ve equipped a black pickguard to match the darker aesthetic of this gorgeous new Baritone model. 

The GM1BARI features a Chrome Stop-Bar Tailpiece, and the Bullbuckers are chrome-covered with the vintage-style machine heads completing the look. The longer scale length and sturdy construction make these guitars perfect for lower tunings, and Baritones are very popular for heavier genres. Plug in your favourite chorus pedal for those classic Robert Smith tones or crank your amp to max if you’re more of a Petrucci fan, the GM1BARI covers a lot of ground! 

The GM1BARI comes strung with 11-56 gauge strings and set up for B Standard. If you’d like to use thicker strings, you may need to adjust the nut. The guitar features a dual-action truss rod and the adjustable bridge and saddles ensure this guitar can be easily set up for various low tunings. We also have resources on our site to help you with this, just reach out if you need any assistance!

You won't find a baritone guitar anywhere else for a price like this. I snapped mine up knowing that I wouldn't like the pickups but the guitar itself is great. The pickups are probably fine for the average guitar player but I wanted a particular tone so I swapped out the bullbuckers. They just weren't for me. Now I have a guitar with guts that can reach those bottom tones without the mud. A great buy! Service is awesome from these guys - they always go the extra mile.

Thank you for sharing your feedback and review.

The best baritone guitar I have in my collection!

Okay, this guitar is awesome! I've been waiting very patiently since the GM1 Bari was announced back in October last year for it to arrive in NZ and as soon as the pre-orders went live, I just had to get one! Mine arrived a few days ago, and ever since, I haven't been able to put it down. It's easily my favourite guitar I own and I have quite a few guitars laying around. For the cash, this guitar runs circles around my PRS SE 277 and my Squier Cabronita Baritone Tele. The only thing I'd change about the GM1 bari is that it doesn't come stock with an option for a traditional Jazzmaster vibrato bar and tailpiece, but other than that, it's awesome! I want to get at least three more as soon as the next round of pre-orders open!
