'Oi 5 String Grand Baritone

The 24" scale Grand Baritone "Utar" blurs the distinction between the baritone ukulele and tenor guitar in a single aught Mango body with a very tight grain old growth Redwood top.


Strung as a 5 string with a Lo/Hi D combination at the 4th course results in a full octave with a very open sound. While fingerpicking, the low G is prevalent and when strumming the high G becomes more noticeable. Alternating between strumming and picking creates a very interesting dynamic sound. It is a magical instrument for slack key tuned D G B D taro patch. (New picture posted soon).


The UG5 has a 1 1/2" uke nut and with the sculpted body the upper registers of the guitar are easily reached. It is strung with a combination of D'Addario classical wound and Worth fluorocarbon strings.


At 13" wide and less than 4#, the 'Oi UG is easy to handle and offers the full sound of a monster baritone uke in a compact travel guitar size. The UG was developed with the same removable and adjustable neck as the ukuleles to be fully serviceable.


It can be easily fitted with an LRBaggs Lyric pressure zone mic for a sound unlike anything else.
