27.7" scale baritone
Baritone electric guitars have been in use with popular music for decades. Both '60s surf rock sounds and spaghetti western soundtracks were full of these down-tuned instruments. Not only did they offer their own muscular twang, but baritones were often used underneath the bass part - known as tic tac bass - for more definition. Today the baritone tradition is going strong with the aggressive lows of heavy metal. Extended-scale instruments like the SE 277 Baritone offer sonic adventurers a way to find new chord voicings.
85/15 S humbucking pickups
The PRS SE 277 baritone is fitted with two PRS-designed 85/15 S humbucking pickups. Based around great vintage humbuckers, these pickups are clear and punchy. Sweetwater guitarists immediately noticed the ability of these pickups to conjure mellow chords one minute and punch the front of an amplifier for high-gain tones while maintaining attack and clarity the next. And the mahogany body ensures these pickups deliver the full low-mid tone that fattens all of your single-note playing for singing sustain.
Unmistakable PRS appointments
The SE 277 Baritone is loaded with appointments that immediately identify the guitar as a Paul Reed Smith. The beveled flame maple veneer top keeps a classy look and feel to the instrument. A PRS-designed plate-style hardtail bridge delivers solid tuning stability in a low-profile design that feels comfortable to your picking hand. And the birds in flight fretboard inlay speaks volumes about the quality of craftsmanship and tone you can expect from this PRS. Sweetwater guitarists are definitely adding this baritone to their collections.
