Traditional sound with quality craftsmanship and beautiful finishing touches.
The cutaway Oscar Schmidt Acoustic-Electric Bajo Sexto has a genuine solid cedar top that generates big volume and active electronics and a pickup that amplify it to any level you need. The bajo sexto guitar's sapele sides and back plus rosewood fingerboard and bridge provide great looks and tight tone. Deluxe tuners keep your Oscar Schmidt Bajo Sexto on the money.
Tuning the bajo sexto:
1. Starting at position one (same as the first string or high E on a guitar), the first 2 strings are tuned in unison, to the note of F. The pitch is equivalent to the F note which occurs on the 3rd fret of the 4th string on a guitar.
2. At position 2, the next set of strings moving upward, both strings are tuned in unison to the note of C, the same as the C occurring at the 3rd fret of the 5th string on a guitar.
3. At position 3, the next 2 strings are tuned in unison to the note of G, the same as the G note which occurs at the 3rd fret of the sixth string of a guitar.
4. At position 4, there are 2 strings of different sizes. The smaller string is tuned to the note of D, the same as the the open 4th string of a guitar. The larger string is tuned also to the note of D, one octave below the other string, which can be found on a bass tuner or tuned by ear, one octave below the smaller string.
5. At position 5, tune the smaller string to the note of A, the same as to the open 5th string of a guitar, which is also found on a guitar tuner. The larger string is tuned one octave below as found on a bass guitar tuner.
6. At position 6, tune the smaller string to the note of E, the same as the open sixth string of a guitar. The larger string is tuned to E, one octave below or with a bass tuner.
