 Baritone Conversion Tuning Guide

 
Baritone guitar scale lengths vary from 28 to 30 inches, however, a standard 25.5 inch scale length electric guitar can simulate a baritone by drop tuning a heavier gauged guitar string set.
Caution: your existing nut might require expert modification to accomodate the wider gauges.
