The SE Mike Mushok features a distinctive 27.7" scale length, a 22-fret maple neck topped with an clean-looking, inlay-free ebony fingerboard, and a bound mahogany body that's both classy and functional. Take your tone to new lows and your sound to new heights with the SE Mike Mushok!

Best guitar I've owned
by Jason from Dallas TXSo gritty and nasty the way it sounds! I have a few other PRS guitars and I don't even play them because this guitar is right up my ally! I actually just ordered another one in brown!!

Best baritone in production!
by Tony from Longview, WAGreat baritone at an excellent price. It is very much intended for low- tuned tunings with baritone strings; although you can set it up for standard tuning (not recommended though). Ideal for loud hig... read more [+]h-gain amps. After you receive it from S.W. take it to a tech and have the truss rod adjusted and a setup (this is a must! As w/any guitar). Set-up for a low tuning; this is the best baritone on the market currently, and you would be hard pressed to find a better baritone ever! close [-]

Much better than I expected!
by Shawn Murray from Lakeland, FloridaPurchased for low-tuned songs, but I've been using it for just about everything! I currently have mine tuned to A standard (ADGCEA) and use a capo for other standard tunings, i.e. B standard = capo ... read more [+]at 2nd fret, E standard = capo at 7th fret, or alternately at 2nd fret & playing on the 5th string. The particular one I received is a bit heavier (weight) than some of the one's I checked out last year locally which I like, though another pound wouldn't hurt.

I'm not a big fan of the plain / unmarked fretboard, but it does give me a project to do in the future...
Tone wise, I love it, the pickups are hot, but not as hot as some of the early models I played when this guitar was first released, or maybe this one's just setup better... Clean tones, especially with the neck pickup & volume knob around 80% are clean, full, & very warm, switch to bridge & get a nice bright, but not overly bright tone. Crank the volume knob to 100% & you get a very mildly overdriven tone. On the early models I tried previously, I would have called it a dirty tone, but on the one I received from Sweetwater, I would say's it's more clean with dirty overtones & that's when playing with a Brazilian Agate (stone) pick & a heavy hand...
I could do without the silverburst paint, but it does look much better in person.
As far as playability goes, well, some people might have trouble due to the long scale and wide fret spacing that goes along with the long scale. But I love it, I have big hands with fat fingers, and the scale and spacing just feel like they were made for my hands. I've been playing with .70ga strings on my 25.5" scale guitar, so there's no change as far as the feel of the strings go, but when playing something in A, A#, or B tuning, it sounds so much cleaner on the baritone, than the muddy sound of tuning down that low on a 25.5" scale, even with the extra heavy strings.
I would definitely recommend this baritone to anyone who likes playing highly down-tuned songs, even over a 7 string guitar due to the added scale length which helps to keep the strings tight on those low tunings. close [-]
Crushes all others
by emery from los angeles, caUn-f-ing-real. I bought this to play my drop-tuned rhythms in drop A#, drop B, etc. This guitar is made for low tunings, and stays tight, in-tune, and clear at low tunings that regular 6strings turn... read more [+] to mush at. This guitar is really light, and although it's a beast in your hands, it still feels great with my small hands; riffing is no problem. I researched ALOT of guitars, even the new Ibanez quasi-baritone, and ESPs, etc. This BLOWS them away, in price, quality, everything. Guaranteed to skyrocket in value, as I heard they may not make too many more. A+ close [-]

In the pantheon of tools that have accumulated in this world, I can easily say the PRS SE Mike Mushok Model is similar to a club! Huge tone, crushing lows, smooth highs and mids, this guitar is at home whether tuned down to A or at standard E. And even with the size of my giant hands, it still feels perfect whether I'm power chording or doing intricate runs up the neck!
