360 Baritone

Overview

360 BaritoneExpanding on the configuration of our popular 360 LT M model, the new Collings 360 Baritone opens up a whole new range of sonic possibilities. The comfortable offset body style, 27.5” scale, and stable Mastery bridge and tremolo create a playability and string tension feel that will make any traditional electric player right at home. Dual Lollar Alnico Pole P90’s beautifully communicate the rich, woody qualities of the baritone sound combined with the acoustical focus and punch of the 360 body style.

The Baritone Sound

A classic staple of surf, rockabilly, and country recordings, electric baritones have more recently found favor with a wide spectrum of players from jazz to metal. This exceptional versatility is further enhanced on the 360 Baritone with the addition of a Mastery tremolo!

Pickup Pairing

The airy snap and strong fundamental tone of Lollar Alnico Pole P90's adds warmth and roundness while maintaining a balanced, articulate sound across the extended baritone range.

Hardware

Mastery have come to be regarded as the definitive manufacturer of high quality bridge and tremolo hardware for offset-style guitars. Crafted with extraordinary care, these components provide superior adjustability, tone, longevity, and tuning stability.

Custom Trim

We craft our pickguards and truss rod covers from multiple-ply materials in-house, providing custom aesthetic options for your 360. Choose from Black, Tortoise, Parchment, or Mint to make it your own.

Playability

A combination of exacting PLEK machine leveling and hand fret dressing ensures consistently excellent playability and a silky fret feel.

Finish

By meticulously hand-sanding between coats, our nitrocellulose lacquer finishes measure between .005 and .007 thousandths in final thickness, maximizing acoustical response while providing excellent protection.

Wood and Warmth

An optional alder or ash body and maple neck lend definition and focus to the baritone tonal range.

Ergonomics

The offset body of the 360 and the 27.5” scale make this baritone one of the most comfortable and easy to transition to for traditional electric players.
