Oscar Schmidt

Authentic and well-made instrument for ultimate accompaniment in Mexican music.

Rich, deep tone from a solid cedar top and genuine sapele sides and back. Rosewood fretboard and bridge with gorgeous wood marquetry and deluxe tuners.


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.

Case sold separately.

excellent value, change strings

By ukeacademy

from Kansas

Comments about Oscar Schmidt Bajo Sexto:

This is an excellent value. One qualification: the instrument is supplied with very poor strings; when the stock strings are replaced by actual bajo sexto strings (stainless steel) the sound quality improves substantially.

sorry I bought this guitar

By guitar gringo

from minnesota

Comments about Oscar Schmidt Bajo Sexto:

I bought the Baja Sexta and attempted to tune it. It sounded terrible so I called the manufacturers in Mundelein, Illinois. I listened and did what the guy there told me to do... the bridge broke right off the guitar!!! The great news is that this site refunded my money without any hassles or problems.
