Here`s one, Dragonfly Guitars from Osaka. 26.2 inch scale length-I`ve played one they are a lot of fun:
Standard tuning, not baritone? That's long. Does it feel substantially longer than a Fender neck? I'll bet ease of playing upper frets is great, but wonder about certain 1st position chord voicings being more of a stretch.
Standard tuning and it feels like the longest neck ever. Lower position chords take a bit of getting used to but I didn`t find it too difficult, in fact what I mostly thought about was strings. It leaves less of the string at the end, no need to clip them and for those used to a lot of winds, can`t do it. But it`s fun, extended runs and drop tune songs, without an extra string.
Not a baritone. I absolutely loved playing this guitar. They are not cheap, otherwise I would very likely have one.
Wait a minute, what am I saying-what I`m trying to say is, it uses the same strings as a regular guitar. But it`s not in standard tuning because of the extra frets. The lowest note on the low string is a B.
I'm not sure I could get used to the fret spacing especially using open chords in the first 3 frets. It looks like you have a pretty good finger stretch in the picture Skip. I have trouble playing with long finger stretches as my hands get older with tendon problems...but if it feels good to you, sell something and go for it!

Yup-capo at the 5th fret and you`re in standard. my two main questions were, whether regular strings would be long enough, and what do you put it in. I haven`t seen any case for it. Ya, the length gives it a feel like a banjo or shamisen, like the fretboard is narrower than it actually is. Definitely at the head of my `next guitar` list. One thing is, if anything happens to it-cost of replacement plus airfare. One thing about a lot of Japanese companies is, they are indifferent about expanding. I could see a demand for these, but they don`t even have a website.
Have a buddy building a Tele Baritone tuned B E A D F# B. It has a humbucker at the bridge and two Tele chrome pickups center and neck (Nashville style). I noticed Fender has a Fender VI baritone out now with a Jazzmaster at the bridge and two Jaguar pickups center and neck with whammy! very cool...
bajo sextos are tuned a fifth below standard and they're generally twelve-strings. this one was made for Richie Sambora, but I think you can still get one through the custom shop; at least you could a few years ago.
Because it is made of Corian and it glows in the dark.
I don't par-le-vou and may even use the incorrect Americanized term wah-lah now and then! It is a cool looking lit up axe though! Not sure why they would put a kill switch on the guitar? I would prefer it on the floor or on the end of my guitar chord (for which I have both). Not sure what that divit lighted thingy is? I'm guessing it's some kind of touch sensitive tape switch like I have on my keyboard for frequency wobbling maybe? or, is it just for looks?
