I bought a low quality Baron acoustic guitar from INTERCONTINENTAL MUSIC for $300 from a store that only sells baron guitars, and I could have gotten a fender for $100 less brand new on Amazon.

Use the neck for a baseball bat and hit the guy over his head that made the guitar

It's as good as your playing pal. You think an expensive Gibson makes you a better player?????

Wow toward the end the view of the neck was horrible twisted. I agree, that one is junk.
edgeofeternity101 (1 year ago)
I bought a G&L with the same problem. I set in my small kitchen and put a large pot of water on simmer for all day long for several days . The humidity finally stabilized and the neck came out straight and very nice. So glad I tried it, I was going to buy a new neck.

With a great many cheap guitars, the wood is not properly dried, and they cut it to shape anyhow, and slap that shit together. Even a complete re-fret with fingerboard leveling... may not do the trick, as they can easily twist again, given some time. It can even make you look bad! My guaranty in those situations: I guaranty that it's not going to hold up, and that you are better off with an instrument made by someone with a reputation for quality.

Russ Attenborough (2 years ago)
Seriously mate if you can't adjust a truss rod, and recognise that the input jack is wired wrong ( 2 wires swap them over duh!) You have no idea what you are doing. I only watched 3 minutes and can clearly see it is wankers like you who make kids believe they have to have $3000 guitars to learn on.Do us a favour and do not make any more videos you are an idiot!
NicWithoutaK (2 years ago)
Holy shit man. At 0:56 seconds, when you're turning the guitar, you can already see just how fucked the action is.

I have a guitar very similar, probably made in the same factory named "Baltimore" I'm planing on doing something with it and turning it into a travel guitar. These guitars are rubbish

quit bein a pompous elitest fathead , these cheapies go for dirt on kijiji and can be fixed up for young kids who can't afford even a squier . what kinda "guitar tech" or luthier or whatever it is you think you are if you fail so miserably like this on something thats a bit of a challenge ???? can only do easy fixes ? useless in the real world ! and no benevolence to poor kids .
Publicity Stuntz (2 years ago)
Damn dude, so if it isn't a name brand guitar it's automatically shit? honestly I'd be afraid to send any guitars to you because they don't have a fender or Gibson logo they would probably be treated like crap
Publicity Stuntz (2 years ago)
+Bob Saturday Like, I understand some are bad but they're not all terrible because of the brand! I've seen videos where people played and they sounded just like a Fender or a Gibson. And some can even make a Chinese copy sound good too
Bob Saturday (2 years ago)
Robert Tyll right Rob , I've had a lotta fun playin on funky cheap guitars with wonky intonation and even written swamp blues tunes that sounded better on them than "proper" guitars
Publicity Stuntz (2 years ago)
+TCGpokemon yeah I did. Like I said, doesn't have a pretty label so it's garbage. And no, I do have better guitars. But I do enjoy playing with something offbrand. I'm sorry that my favorite guitar is not worthy of Nelson

I've taken apart many of these Chinese off brands. All crappy but this is by far the worst neck I've seen. Trash can.
deth502 (2 years ago)
i would not advise running that neck through a table saw to remove the fretboard. table saws do not generally take kindly to cutting steel truss rods.

I've bought 4 or 5 guitars like this in the past, they make nice smashing guitars, lol. Just have a pick guard with decent pickups that I salvage and change between guitars. Buy em used for $20 a piece and it's not to expensive when you're gigging for $300 between 5 bandmates.

on the upside old guitar necks make great home defence weapons, I keep one next to the bed in case I have to tackle a burglar in the middle of the night, the cops are way less likely to give you shit about it compared to say a baseball bat.

A Few things about cheap guitars- 1. They rarely, if ever, get a proper setup (fret leveling, proper intonation set, etc.) 2. They rarely are TAKEN CARE OF. Usually its a tossaround- which turns any guitar into a pile of junk. 3. Cheap electronics. You can replace pots, switches, and pickups to your heart's content. These are GREAT for people who want to learn how to setup a guitar, and experiment. Make a mistake and destroy it? not a big deal. you can get another one for 70 bucks. Every now and then, a cheap no-name guitar comes along that HAS been taken care of, HAS been properly setup, including swapping in decent electronics, and you have a gem that no one's heard of. Usually though, you come across them in pawn shops etc, and they are just beat beyond dead.

Hey before you throw that neck in the garbage I've been looking for a junk guitar neck to play around with, could I have it I'll pay shipping?
TheColonelKlink (2 years ago)
Ah. The well known Crapper Shit-o-caster. Deluxe edition with tuner bushings. Neck twist at no extra charge.
SteelyGlow (2 years ago)
Nice paddle! The point is, that even if you manage to straighten the neck, it will twist over and over again in the same way. It's definitely cheaper to get a new one.

TCM = Totally Continental Music ;) Intercontinental or Continental Music has been in business since the early 70's. I recall in the mid 70's they had a shop on Rideau Street and used to sell Fender and Ibanez products. They lost there license to sell any legitimate musical instrument brands years ago. You see this junk in pawn shops all over town.

For those that want a counterfeit guitar from China, which was all the rage a few years ago, this is what you would be getting. The Baron name just turns it from being a counterfeit to a knock off.

Now you know how I feel, I work on about a half dozen of those kind of guitars a week and I have to get them playing because the majority of them come in because they belong to students that are starting lessons.

Put some good tuners on it, make the bridge a hard tail, plus 1 good pick up and you can have some to mess around with for slide.

Yet another vid of how "NOT" to diagnose problems. I'm thankful that Dave Reaume of Dave's World of Fun Stuff is posting vids again. People can actually learn something from him. Go ahead and block me Nelly. I really don't care. Bad guitar playing plus how not to do it equals a WASTE OF PEOPLES TIME. For all who reads my comment:  Watch Dave, Will Gelvin or Duncan at DKG. You might actually learn something from them unlike this child like approach to guitar repair. All said: I'm not one of those Warlock Wyatt groupies. I  only wish to watch video's that are entertaining and informative. Sadly after months as a subscriber I don't see it here.

+Sergei Ironfist Don't know why but I just saw this today (having google + issues) ......funny as hel*!!! I guess if he walks around looking like he may have leprosy, no one will come within 10ft of him!!! One could always attempt to joust his f''n mouth shut! (how long is a joust pole?) ha
Rottie Man (3 years ago)
+Sergei Ironfist  Grove did EXACTLY the same to me!!! It was my VERY FIRST comment on his channel and all I did was give him a suggestion.  Of course he replied by cursing me up and down, then blocked me, then sent me a PM to MY channel saying I'm a douchebag and he would kill my family. At the time I was a CO at a max security state prison and I just about filed a terroristic threat charge against him. I quickly realized he wasn't worth my time as his bark is so much bigger than his bite. I had nothing to gain by seeking him out and kicking the sh*t out of a mentally ill guy who can barely walk, let alone fight. (Same goes for that double douchebag espltd....he NEEDS to walk around his house with a gun on his hip with a mouth that big. Talks a ton of shit, yet claims he can barely stand up). The jerk of*s like Grove, Duncan, Will and espltd amaze me. You can bet your life though that when out in public, standing face to face, they don't even utter a word out of fear of crossing the wrong dude on the wrong day. Nobody goes through life treating people with such disrespect the way they do without getting bitch slapped 10 times a day! LOL Isn't it ironic though how these guys are all about "I can say whatever I want" and "it's free speech so you can't sensor me" and "I have the right to my opinion"....(Will said in a vid once that we don't ever dare take away his voice and free speech!)...yet as soon as someone even remotely disagrees with them, the first thing they do is take away our voice. I wished they'd all do what Grove did and just go away!
Rottie Man (3 years ago)
+crazyuncleduke9 I'm not really hurt getting blocked by those that I consider less than pond scum. And..........you REALLY mean it? Like you REALLY REALLY mean it this time? As in I should heed your words....or else? So, you really DIDN'T mean it before? But NOW you REALLY mean it? Uhhhhhh OK, now that I know you REALLY mean it this time, I guess I will no longer converse with you out of fear of mammoth repercussions!
crazyuncleduke9 (3 years ago)
This is the reason you and others like you get blocked. You don't know when to shut up and leave it alone. Again, Good day sir and I mean it.
Rottie Man (3 years ago)
+crazyuncleduke9 Sure, your are correct in saying that we are all entitled to our opinions (I don't think anyone disagrees).But.......... Don't you see how some can be delivered tastefully and respectfully and  others not so much? There's absolutely no need to sh*t all over someone because you may disagree with them whether it's what they say, a position they take or something they do (especially if it's with good intentions). That's exactly what Will, Grove and Duncan do and I can assure you, having one's name mentioned in the same sentence as those three is most definitely NOT a compliment.
Michael Lavoie (3 years ago)
Where did you get the guitar from?
John Smith (3 years ago)
With the swimming pool route in the body you could do what a friend did and make your own pick guard and fit two Humbuckers instead of single coils... or P90s for a really different looking strat, or even a P90 at the neck and a Humbucker at the bridge. lots of options there   : )
orlock20 (3 years ago)
+John Smith Or for the less tech savvy, one can get multiple pickup combinations with the guts attached to the pick guard.
Bryant Rockwell (3 years ago)
I had a mail order bently model strat body knock off back when I was 12. Scraped the Bentley neck & replaced it with an old fender strat maple neck.......took it to a guitar guru in the next town. And he put one really good vintage single coil pick up in it. Still have that guitar. Played good, but then I got my hands on the real thing, and the rest was history. I think baron & Bentley are made in the same factory. Looking forward to seeing what is done with the body. Good video

As soon as you held the neck up head to the camera you could CLEARLY see how bad it was warped !! ha ha ha
SuperDd40 (3 years ago)
anybody heard of Robson ? just got one of those POS for free  and it looks a lot like that Baron, shitty pots, switch and pick-ups but the neck looks reasonably straight and i've got a bunch of parts leftover from other broken guitars so i think i'll put my jigsaw to work and make something interesting out of it

DUDE! Back of the hand test. I swear you're gonna electrocute yourself one of these days on one of those cheap ass badly wired no earth guitars. Any guitar that buzzes as bad as this POC did shouldnt even be lifted, never mind played. p.s, what the actual fuck does cattywampus even mean?
gamer7138 (1 year ago)
The old school amplifiers had bad ground wires and because it was all wired up and steel strings were basicly a circuit to the microphone in a long way around touching both means a shortcircuit meaning electric discharge
kevin paul halliday (2 years ago)
You can insert a capacitor into your string ground, if you have one spare, to prevent being shocked. I usually have a few lying around. If you are a guitarist AND singer you have a much greater chance of being shocked because of your microphone going live than your guitar on it's own. Thankfully it is much rarer these days. RCD's are a lifesaver to a live performer who isn't sure about the electrics at the venue.
Bob Saturday (2 years ago)
tusskmusic pompous dingbat , you won't get electrocuted by a guitar dummy
John Smith (2 years ago)
Just as a matter of course, it's always a good idea to use a multi meter on any new (second hand - used) amp you get just to be on the safe side, I've personally only ever seen one old (PA system) amp that had a problem but it can happen, lets not forget that people still routinely collect and play amps that are 50+ years old, a lot can happen in that time and an amp that was perfectly safe when it was made could have been altered or become faulty since then.
Kurt Bremser (2 years ago)
+RorysIrishTour "Not grounded" in this context means that while the guitar has a correct hot&ground connection from the PU's to the amp and will play, the connection from signal ground to the bridge is broken and the strings do not have a connection to ground, as they should usually have.
D34THC10CK (3 years ago)
Baron guitars, the only place I've ever seen those was at intercontinental music in Ottawa, for the same price there are much better options, cheers
