The production of ToneSmith Baritone Guitar started. A first batch of 10 guitars are being assembled.
Along with the better construction Kevin also made 3 fundamental design changes to the guitar:
1. Instead of a 3 and 3 'bottle cap' headstock he went for a 6-in-line arrangement to make for quicker tuning tweaks;
2. Instead of a control cavity on the back of the Baritone, he housed all the electronics under the pick-guard which makes it easier for a much quicker repair (and also looks much sleeker)
