Texture and Versatility

Built with a longer 27.7” scale length, the SE 277 is perfect for heavier, more aggressive guitar playing. But this is no one-trick pony. The 277’s 85/15 “S” pickups were designed to deliver remarkable clarity and extended high and low end, allowing the 277 to handle blues and funk with flair as well. Additional appointments include a string-through bridge design for strong, resonant tone.

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. Ships tuned B to B.

"Try as I might, I couldn’t find a dang thing wrong or even slightly unsatisfying with the PRS SE 277. It’s comfortable, fun, and easy to play; has a wide range of versatile, simple-to-control tones; and proved a gleeful partner in sonic mayhem as well as a suave traditionalist.”

"Not just for metalheads, this affordable baritone from PRS is far from a one-trick pony.”


“I love how this guitar is great at heavy and aggressive music but can play pretty much any style of music you want to play on it. This may be the most versatile of all the guitars in this review.”
