    It was n new 59M NOS with adjustable bridge. This is pretty common according to my luthier.

    It’s a design fault and one that can be fixed easily. But I agree, for a $400 guitar, they should deliver a better quality bridge.

    Sorry to take so long for reply but I think it plays good but I don't have experience with any other bari. I play a lot of resonator guitar so I am kind of used to and prefer heavy strings.

    I have one of the Dano baritones; I replaced the bridge plate with a stainless steel unit and it works great.

    Past couple of days I've started thinking about a baritone. I play bass and guitar. My existing basses cover the thumpy low end as I've got them all strung with flatwounds. A friend brought by his Gretsch baritone a while back and that was very cool. Then someone recommended getting a conversion neck and I'm sitting here looking at this Peavey Reactor I inherited which is sort of a project guitar but I really do not like the neck, too flat and wide compared to all my others. The only thing I would be a little concerned about is that the neck pickup won't really be in the right spot but I could also chalk that up to "who cares"?

    So the next thing to wonder is whether there's a baritone conversion neck that would work on a Peavey Reactor? hmmmm...

    later that same day...


    Yeah and subsequent to that I have to admit to myself that I am not a guitar builder/modder kinda person. The PRS looks and sounds pretty nice.

    I used to have a Dano '63 Re-issue Baritone. Got it off craigslist for $150.

    Nice, but way too pricey for me

    Another vote for the PRS 277 SE.
    Love their soap bar pickups.
    Came out of the box, ready to play.
