    But... uh... he HAS a 27''-scale guitar. Why not use that scale? :shrug:

    didnt knew my standard Ibanez was a "baritone" too lol

    jokes aside thats pretty cool. Im guessing they are taking advantage of Mark H. guitar plans to adapt to this one.

    like MarkT "but Paul, you build one for MarkH. I want one toooooo"


    only shame is it would be out of my price range :(

    wtf, they literally make 27" scale guitars and then call 25.5" a baritone scale. PRS is so out of touch sometimes I swear.

    25.5 has to be a typo.

    According to the site they ship with 14-68 gauges. Tuned to C#. I think something is a typo, either the scale length or those string gauges. Lol

    Regardless, the guitar looks f-ing amazing!

    LOL. If this was the 27.7" scale length of the Mushok I would buy one. I feel like PRS is trolling.

    And def not a typo. The proportions on that guitar are all wrong for a long scale length.

    The pickup spacing is definitely in-like with a 25.5'' guitar with 22 frets.

    Here's another for comparison.

    Hey guys, do you think I'll be able to adapt to the 25.5" scale length? I don't know, I don't want to get it, and then not be able to handle that extra half an inch. I mean, I get that you have to go way longer like that to get rid of the wound G string, and allow it to be tuned down. How much lower will this be allowed to tune down? Like a quarter step? Eh, I don't know if I want to be all nu-metal like the young kids, and tune down that far. What's next, tuning down a whole step? THIS IS WHAT A BASS IS FOR!! Plus, is such a long scale length even possible? Wouldn't you snap the strings at that long of a scale length? Or the neck?! Maybe they have 2 truss rods? God, that has to be SOOOO much tension! Ah well, I guess I've talked myself out of it. I'll keep playing my regular Fenders and stuff, and not go all crazy. You kids and your downtuning!

    All of my guitars became baritones today.

    Amazing.
