PRS may be best known for their high quality guitars with 25" scale necks but it turns out they are pretty damn good at making baritone guitars as well. As part of the SE range this 27.7" baritone scale guitar feels and sounds great out of the box with all of the same playability you love out of a Custom 24.
As this guitar is a whole 2.7" longer than your standard 6 string guitar it had to be tuned lower to get similar tension. So this guitar comes out of the box set up for B standard which is a fair bit lower than you may be used to with an electric guitar.
Normally reserved for extreme metal styles this tuning works incredibly well for much more than just that. It gives the guitar this rare low rumble and thump on cleans while still remaining clear. On crunch tones it breaks up beautifully and gives you some new dynamics you can add to your blues or rock playing.
Solid PRS Build
You can't go wrong with a PRS it is as simple as that. No matter if you are looking to spend thousands on a custom PRS Private Stock guitar or just a few hundred on one of their SE models you are going to get a high quality guitar. This guitar is no different from any of the others and is made to be a workhorse that will just keep on working.
With a Mahogany Body and Maple top as well as a Mahogany neck with Rosewood fretboard the tone of the guitar is warm with a tight attack. This combination has been a staple in the world of electric guitars for a long time as it works great for almost any style. Just plug in to your favourite amp and away you go.
Here's what PRS say about the SE 277 Baritone Guitar
Built with a longer 27.7" scale length, the SE 277 Baritone is perfect for heavier, more aggressive guitar playing. But this is no one trick pony. The 277's Tone Furnace pickups deliver articulate growl, allowing the 277 to handle blues and funk with flair as well. Additional appointments include a string-through bridge design for strong, resonant tone. So whether you're interested in rocking a clean tone, picking bass lines beneath higher melodies on one guitar, or chugging out the heaviest drop-tuned riffs, the SE 277 offers versatility in a reliable package for players looking to push the envelope.
