In a 2012 issue of [Fender Magazine](http://images.fender.com/features/magazine/GB_web_full.pdf), Justin Norvell, vice president Of Marketing for Fender was interviewed to say, "On Foo Fighters’ 'Wasting Light', Pat Smear played baritone on nearly every track. You get an octave space between bass and guitar sometimes, and the way to fix that is with a baritone,” says Norvell. “Baritone guitars are a great studio/recording instrument, even if they’re not the focal point of the band."more
The first thing I did was replace the pickups outright with some really hot pickups from GuitarFetish.Com . I found that the ones that came with the guitar were lacking. She roars now. I use it on songs that are normally too high in standard tuning (AC/DC, Led Zep, KISS, etc) while remaining true to the chord shapes on the original songs.
