YES! YES! Baritone ukes are wonderful! Peter, early on last year we had a great thread on that. I was trying to decide which I wanted. The courting guitars are beautiful,too.
If he isn't too serious and wants to be inexpensive, he can get a decent sounding baritone uke at West World Music. My sister bought one for about $35 U.S., supposedly for school, then gave it to me. While it isn't as nice as her's, it is sufficient for an amateur like me.
