News: PRS Guitars Unveils Two New Baritones for 2016 Model Year

PRS Guitars Unveils Two New Baritones for 2016 Model Year: The SE277 and SE 277 Semi Hollow Soapbar

(STEVENSVILLE, MD) November 17, 2015 – PRS Guitars recently added two new baritone guitars, the new SE 277 Semi Hollow Soapbar and the SE 277, to its bevy of more affordable guitar model options. Tuned B to B, two and a half steps below standard, the two new baritones offer a taut muscular low end, with powerful aggressive tones and flexibility of going from chimey clean, to warm depth, to articulate tonal hostility.

Named for its baritone 27.7” scale length neck, the SE 277 Semi Hollow Soapbar takes the traditional mahogany back, maple top platform to new territories with its chambered back, f-hole, and dual soapbar pickup configuration. The semi-hollow body provides increased acoustic resonance and clarity while the soapbars deliver a balance of transparent, uncompressed clean tones and thick growl.

For guitarists who are comfortable with more traditional appointments, PRS has introduced the SE 277, which features the same 27.7” baritone scale length as its semi-hollow brother but with a solid body and PRS SE dual humbucking pickups. The SE 277 covers the spectrum of sound from sparkling highs, to surf-rock jangle, to heavy down-tuned aggression.

Baritone guitars are known to hold a unique position in the mix. When asked to describe the sweet spot where these baritones reside, PRS demonstrator Bryan Ewald responded, “These two baritone guitars land somewhere in between the bass and guitar registers. Guitarists can play them to add a different sound to the mix and to fatten up rhythm tracks. Bass players can use them to create texture and tonal tenacity.”

“These guitars are a perfect fit for everything from country to surf rock to metal,” Rich Hannon, PRS Artist Relations. “They are comfortable to play with a shred-worthy feel and handle alternate tunings like a beast.”

Additional specifications for both the SE 277 Semi Hollow Soapbar and SE277 include a beveled maple top with flame maple veneer, mahogany back, 22-fret maple neck with rosewood fingerboard with bird inlays, PRS-designed plate-style bridge, PRS-designed tuners, volume and tone with a 3-way toggle pickup switch.

Available Finishes:
SE277 Semi Hollow Soapbar: Gray Black and Vintage Sunburst
SE277: Black Cherry and Tobacco Sunburst

Other notable additions to the PRS 2016 model lineup include: a new Private Stock Archtop model, pickup and color updates across Core models, and S2 satin finishes and two new acoustic models in the SE line. Stay tuned for more details.

Martin Miller: demos the Wampler Velvet Fuzz #1

Here's another raw one-taker I filmed.

Again featuring the Wampler Pedals / IndyGuitarist Velvet fuzz, but this time going into the front end of my clean Laney Amplification Ironheart 30w combo and way less overall gain. Delay/Reverb via AxeFX.

I settled for camera sound this time, as I didn't have a mic ready and this way you can hear what the setup really sounds like in the room. Thanks to Josh Smith and for the backing (disclaimer: I can't play the blues) .

With this pedal it's kinda impossible not to try to all Eric Johnson :P
