The Standard Bajo Sexto is a 12-string guitar used in Norteno music, also referred to as Tex-Mex, Conjunto or Musica Mexicana. The Bajo Sexto is tuned approximately an octave lower than the twelve string guitar, out in strict fourths. The lower three courses are doubled at the higher octave, and the upper three courses are unison: E2-E1 A2-A D3-D2 G2-G2 C3- C3 F3-F3 (from lowest to highest course.)

There are also some light scuffs on the inside of the headstock slots.
