From the Folks at Paul Reed Smith (Official Press Release):
Official Press Release From PRS:
PRS Guitars is pleased to continue their relationship with Mark Tremonti of Alter Bridge and Creed fame with the announcement of the Limited Edition Tremonti Baritone model. Based on Mark Tremonti’s signature PRS model, this limited edition guitar features a longer 25.5” scale length that allows players to tune down but ditch the wound “G” so they have the freedom to play lead as well as rhythm.
Tremonti’s signature pickups are a perfect fit with an aggressive, articulate tone and the "Pattern Thin" figured maple neck makes playing a breeze the all the way up the neck. "This is one of my favorite guitars I’ve ever played. It’s a dream come true for people who like to tune low and still be able to solo. I absolutely love it," said Mark Tremonti in a recent video interview.
The Tremonti Baritone Limited Edition is offered in six colors and all feature stained figured maple necks. Finishes include: Black Gold Wraparound Burst, Charcoal Contour Burst, Copperhead, Faded Whale Blue, Fire Red Burst, Jade.
Guitars will ship tuned to C# [C#, F#, B, E, G#, C#). Additional specs include:
There is no limit to the number of Tremonti Baritone signature guitars that will be made, but the order window is from October 6, 2016 through December 20, 2016 only. Contact your Authorized PRS Dealer to place your order. To learn more about the Tremonti Baritone and to hear it in action, please visit http://prsguitars.com/tremonti_baritone.
