I don't know much about Baritone guitars but I think I'm going to build one styled after a Fender Telecaster Deluxe:



If I were to build (piece together, not craft) a baritone guitar, is the only difference in building a normal electric would be a 28 5/8" scale neck?

Where would be the best place to get a neck? I'd guess Warmoth, but I was hoping for that Fender fat-strat headstock in baritone form and hopefully a Canadian store).

For any other baritone users: do you use any particular pickups, strings, etc?

Also...are there any amps in particular that sound great with low tunings? I heard this clip of the horrible looking Longhorn baritone guitar through a Vox AC30 and I was amazed...
