PRS Guitars adds the SE 277 Semi-Hollow Soapbar and the SE 277 baritone guitars to their line up. 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 and tuners, volume and tone with a 3-way toggle pickup switch.

Baritone guitars are tuned to either A to A or as these are, B to B--that's two and a half steps below standard guitar tuning. A staple for Country and Rock music styles, these two new baritones offer a tight low-end sound for playing distinctive and colorful melodies or thematic leitmotifs. Sounds possible range from powerful aggressive tones going from chimey clean, to warm depths, to articulate tonal hostility.

Both these guitars have 27.7-inch scale lengths with the PRS SE 277 Semi-Hollow Soapbar going with a maple top with chambered back, F-hole, and dual soapbar pickups.

Sonically apples to oranges, the PRS SE 277 has the same neck 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 dropped-tuned aggression.

Available finishes for the SE277 Semi Hollow Soapbar are Gray Black and Vintage Sunburst while the SE277 comes in Black Cherry and Tobacco Sunburst. There is much more at: www.prsguitars.com/se277/.
