Baritone electric guitars have been in use with popular music for decades. Both '60s surf rock sounds and spaghetti western soundtracks were full of these down-tuned instruments. Not only did they offer their own muscular twang, but baritones were often used underneath the bass part — known as tic-tac bass — for more definition. Today the baritone tradition is going strong with the aggressive lows of heavy metal. Extended-scale instruments like the SE 277 Baritone offer sonic adventurers a way to find new chord voicings.
