The PRS 2018 SE Santana Signature Electric Guitar in Yellow is a sophisticated model that boasts an impressive energy, and exceptional versatility that is a true reflection of the enigmatic guitarist's style. Having collaborated for many years, it is clear to see why Carlos Santana and PRS have stuck together and continue to be so successful, when guitars like this are the fruits of their labour.
Cool double-cutaway body
The PRS 2018 SE Santana is crafted using solid mahogany for the back, which is a dense tonewood that is favoured by many due to its rich and creamy tones. Paired with this is a bright and crisp-sounding maple top, which accentuates the highs to guarantee a well-rounded output. The mahogany/maple combination offers a sophisticated tonal palette that is excellent for smooth jazz and blues' sounds. The beautiful flame-maple veneer adds an elegant touch to the finish, whilst the striking yellow paint work guarantees that you will stand out.
Delightful neck profile
The mahogany neck is crafted to the wide-fat profile, which is great if you're looking for a fast-playing surface that feels both substantial and reassuring in the hand. It is also the first guitar in the SE series to offer a 24.5-inch scale length, lending itself perfectly to the bountiful sustain produced by this sweet guitar.
The hardwood fingerboard guarantees a high-degree of articulation in every note, as well as a snappy and responsive attack - responding to your playing technique exactly as you'd want it to. The 22-fret fingerboard is adorned with unique PRS bird inlays to guide your way in style.
Expressive Santana humbuckers
The PRS Santana SE is fitted with Santana "S" humbuckers, which are designed by the man himself alongside the team at PRS. Each one is fitted in the neck and bridge position, and provides a wide range of tonal possibilities to explore. From sizzling highs through a punchy mid-range to thunderous lows, the SE Santana "S" humbuckers are perfect for tackling any musical style with ease.
Control is simplified thanks to the arrangement of master volume and master tone knobs, as well as the three-way pickup selector switch. However simple the setup may be, do not underestimate the complexity and richness of tones that can be produced.
Smooth and stable hardware
The strings are married to the body perfectly thanks to the excellently crafted PRS-designed tremolo. Vibrato control is smooth and simple, allowing you to pour your creativity into each and every note, safe in the knowledge that the bridge will readily return to starting position efficiently. The PRS-designed tuners expertly uphold the tuning integrity. Strong and uncompromising nickel hardware is used throughout.
The PRS 2018 SE Santana Signature Electric Guitar in Yellow is an excellent model for those who're looking for a guitar with stunning good looks, a familiar playability that feels like you've had it your whole life, and an output that sings with the utmost clarity and miles of sustain.
