Two New PRS Baritone SE Guitars for 2016, SE 277 & SE 277 Semi Hollow Soapbar

prs_se_baritones

PRS have announced a couple of Baritone guitars to add to the SE range for 2016 which will no doubt be on display at Winter NAMM 2016 this January, the SE 277 and SE 277 Semi Hollow Soapbar.

So why are they called SE 277? That is thanks to the whopping 27.7” scale length of the neck, to put that into perspective my baritone 7 string is 27″, almost 28″ for a 6 string is an incredibly long neck and would probably allow you to drop lower than the B tuning without losing any tension. The semi hollow body version looks pretty cool, especially with the soapbar pickups. This is what PRS have to say about it:

“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.”

Baritone guitars are an interesting instrument useful for Metal, Rock or even Blues (check out The Ballad Of John Henry by Joe Bonamassa). As Rich Hannon, PRS Artist Relations puts it: “They are …read more

Kirk Hammett Signature Overdrive Pedal – KHDK Ghoul Screamer

KHDK ghoul screamer

The Ghoul Screamer is the new signature Overdrive pedal for Metallica’s Kirk Hammett who, up until now has only ever had a signature Wah pedal from Dunlop (some of you may think that is more fitting!). I’m not sure what has suddenly sparked Kirk’s interest in pedals but if the company name and KHDK website is anything to go by it would appear that he is a partner in the business. So far KHDK have announced three pedals, the “No. 1 Overdrive”: tube sound in a pedal, “No. 2 Clean Boost”: warm, tube-like boost and the “Ghoul Screamer”: a true utility knife of overdrives.

The Ghoul Screamer has 3 knobs, Drive, Tone & Volume like most Overdrive pedals but Kirk Hammett wanted this pedal to do more than your basic Tube Screamer so KHDK added five switches to control the essential components of your sound: EQ, dynamics and pick sensitivity. Plus the pedal features artwork by San Francisco tattoo artist Tim Lehi.

Cilia Guitars Custom Halo Build Diary – Part 1

Cilia-Halo-selected-tonewoods

As my new Cilia Guitars is nearing completion it is time for me to start a build diary so that I can share the build process with you. As you probably know I already own a custom Cilia Guitars CGA 7 and posted the progress shots in a series of posts back in February 2013. Last year I decided I needed another of Charles Cilia’s exceptional guitars in my collection so I went over to his workshop to sit down and plan my 2nd Custom Cilia. First of all I knew I wanted a 6 string guitar and because I already own a 7 string superstrat style guitar with a floyd rose, a Suhr S4 which is a sort of modern Strat style guitar, a Patrick Eggle which is PRS-like I wanted something a bit different. Over the years I have played many Cilia guitars and have always loved Charles’ Cilia Halo which is a singlecut design with his own custom pickups that sounds and feels amazing. The Halo has a 25″ scale length giving the strings a little more tension than a Les Paul and a touch less than a Fender Strat and it has a …read more
