PRS SE 277 Semi-Hollow Soapbar Baritone Guitar - Grey Black
Baritone guitars are often unfairly overlooked by players as people think of them as a chunky "nishe" instrument, but thanks to PRS's fantastic craftsmanship, has turned this thought on its head and artists around the globe from all different styles are starting to rediscover the baritone and are changing the way people think of this slightly unusual guitar.
The SE 277 gets its name from the outstandingly playable 27.7" neck, and it may sound like a bold move to name an entire range after but after even the briefest play around you'll see that it's a worthy namesake. This soft playing neck is crafted from tough, sturdy maple and has a flawless rosewood 22 fretted fretboard featuring PRS distinctive bird inlays.
This larger scale enables the guitar to be tuned to the most hardcore tunings and open the door to the extremes of playing in various styles. Most commonly tuned in a B to B format, metal players have never sounded heavier; deep, full, chugging riffs have never sounded so powerful, and on the flip side, finger picking and surf rock artists are flooded with benefits as the lower tone compliments the accentuation of notes and the larger frets make fretting a cleaner experience.
Naturally, a larger scale instrument produces deeper tones which can often leave baritones sounding slightly muddy and too dark, but once again PRS have this covered. Using a maple topped, mahogany semi-hollow body with an f-hole, the SE 277 has all the depth and huge resonance you'd expect plus a sense of pure, clean brightness. Complimented with ultra clear Soapbar pick-ups, the true clarity of the natural properties are left at their purest and represent the baritone sound at it's very best.
In a grey black finish, it's a tasteful way to top off a classy instrument. Someone is bound to take a shine to it very, very soon so make sure you don't miss out!
