Full deep sound

This is my first baritone guitar so really I can only compare it with normal guitars rather than other baritone guitars. I play with an Irish traditional/folk band and by myself. I am the only guitar player in the band so it is an alternative to my main guitar. I always play with a plectrum both strumming and picking.
It is an acoustic steel guitar with cutaway, canadian cedar top, mahogany back & sides, mahogany neck, rosewood fretboard, bone nut & saddle. A fine looking guitar.
It has a Shadow Performer Pro Tuner preamp, which is a quality preamp and of course it's always handy to have a built in tuner
When playing, the first thing you'll notice is its size. It's bigger than a normal guitar and this affects its handling. The neck is longer and broader so the frets are wider and the space between the strings are slightly wider. This makes it easier to hit the right string when picking but more of a stretch for your left hand to play chords. Obviously this will affect some chords more than others.
The baritone guitar is tuned lower than a standard guitar and uses heavier gauge strings. Your chords change accordingly. So if you want to play a normal open G chord, you need to play a C shape. If you want to play C you must play an F shape etc. etc. Of course this will often change the structure of the song or tune you're playing. I enjoyed this as a kind of mental exercise. Because of its lower tuning, it makes you approach working out the riffs on songs and tunes differently.
The sound is, of course, the most important thing. I love it. It's deep, somewhere between a normal guitar and an acoustic bass. It's big, round, full and loud.
I wouldn't swap my normal guitar for it but it's a great addition to my musical arsenal and gives me a lot more scope sound wise. Practically, I can't play guitar and baritone guitar at the same time live but I will use both when recording. It's a quality instrument and well priced. I'm enjoying it a lot.

Sch n & deep

Processing and optics:
The "Suzanna" makes a very solid impression, not excessive decorations, the inserts on the 12th fret and on the head plate are noble, binding of wood is also my taste, only to the soundhole rosette I have not yet so used. The processing is for me nothing to complain about.

Sound:
LOW of course, and absolutely "saturated" sound in all areas. I play almost exclusively fingerpicking, mostly with metal picks. Without a thumb ring, the low strings do not come so dominant, but this is probably also due to my technique, for some pieces is not so bad. This is by the way the first baritone guitar that I had in my hand, so I can not compare.

Handling:
Even a little getting used to. The distance to the first cot is a whopping 40mm (compared to 35mm for my "standard" guitar), because you have to stretch some grips quite nicely. After a while, however, this is no longer a problem. Otherwise, I was afraid that through the thicker strings the playability is worse (use otherwise .11 strings). Absolutely unfounded! Hardly any difference!
With the built-in shadow pickup I get along very well.

Commitment:
I play the "Suzanna" for myself, but also in a folk band together with (among others) mandolin, banjo, double bass and another guitar. In the rehearsals, we could already conclude that such a baritone guitar really provides for fuller sound because it covers the low notes before the double bass.

Conclusion:
A good purchase. I've been playing guitar for decades; Here there is a lot of new things to try out without having to learn a completely different instrument. Price / performance ratio. It would interest me, where the instrument was built, which is nowhere. Is actually synonymous no preference.
