    Once in a while I'll hear a baritone guitar on various songs (Good Enough, Ballot Or The Bullet, etc.). Anyone here know anything about those or what Eddie has used? If so, the floor is yours!

    I believe "Good Enough" was recorded with Ed using a string from Mikey's bass in place of his low E string, hence the heavy, chain rattling sound becuase it was so big... That may have been the case for the other tune as well. [img]graemlins/bounce.gif[/img]

    Wasn't Ballot or the Bullet intro a bass? Spanked has a Baritone guitar in it.

    I think I remember reading that Ballot or the Bullet was recorded on Wolfie's Mini-Wolfgang.

    That's right! I remember that now. Ed said that he was taking a bass guitar G string...heh heh heh, a G string...and putting it on his guitar. Thanks, Jalapeno!

    The intro to "Ballot, "Primary" was a Coral Sitar.

    My Cherry Lane tab book says that the main guitar on Baluchitherium was standard but in dropped D. Near the end of the song the 7 string comes in.

It's not that you can't pull it off as using the aforementioned setup, but it was recorded using a Music Man Albert Lee as mentioned....
