Setting out its stall with similar appointments to the SE 277 the PRS SE 277 Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar offers the same high quality of tone, superb playability and craftsmanship, that competes with its Maryland-made counterparts, all at a fantastic price but with the addition of a hollow chamber and a modern f-hole.
The standard in tonewoods
The legendary combination of a beveled maple top, with a flame maple veneer on this model, and a mahogany body, is utilised on the PRS 277 Semi-Hollow. Commonly paired together, these woods give you all the rich, warm low tones of the mahogany and the bright, snappy highs of the maple. The addition of the flame maple veneer really adds to the beauty of this already stunning guitar.
The addition of a hollow chamber and modern f-hole to the PRS 277 Semi-Hollow is not purely aesthetic as they lower the weight of the guitar, push the midrange tones and add more natural reverb. A small addition but it adds that much more flexibility to the tone and makes the guitar a lot more comfortable to handle, and more importantly, to play.
Wider neck profile
For those who prefer a more meaty neck the PRS SE Custom Semi-Hollow offers a wide, fat mahogany neck topped by a rosewood fingerboard. The fingerboard itself has 22 frets with position markers represented by classic PRS bird inlays.
The electronics of the PRS SE Custom Semi-Hollow are set out pretty simply with a pair of PRS SE Soapbars offering all the power and versatility of tone you’ll ever need. Control lies with master volume and master tone knobs, along with a three-way selector switch.
