This is my green Ibanez electric guitar. I purchased it when I was 15 years old. When I was a kid, I mowed yards to make money. I saved up all of my grass cash to purchase this bright green guitar. There was a lot of sweat that went into acquiring this instrument. I was certain it would make me so incredibly cool that all the girls would love me. That never happened.
As a folk singer, I don’t have much use for a neon green electric guitar. I decided it would be a more useful instrument if I set it up as a baritone. I use strings designed for a seven string guitar. It’s tuned a fifth lower than a normal guitar. The neck length is not as long as an actual baritone guitar so there are issues with it staying in tune. That’s the price I pay for being so incredibly cool.
