Carlos Santana's long-standing relationship with PRS has produced some absolute gems over close to 30 years. The PRS SE range delivers the enigmatic PRS playability, tone and style at a more affordable price tag so that everyone can enjoy their sublime guitars. Now that Santana/PRS SE partnership is responsible for another fantastic model - the PRS SE Santana Standard Edition.
Double cutaway design
The unique PRS SE Santana double-cutaway body shape is on show, which is noted for its graceful lines and excellently balanced weight, making it incredibly easy to wield onstage. The body is constructed from mahogany. Mahogany makes up the back and sides with its deep resounding character, giving the guitar a solid mid to low-end foundation.
Neatly fitted to the body is a maple neck, which has shaped to the wide-fat profile, giving the neck a substantial and reassuringly feel in the hand. The fingerboard has been made using rosewood, which offers the perfect playground along which to navigate the 22-frets. The maple/rosewood combination guarantees that the neck and fingerboard play smoothly, which each nuance in your attack is translated as accurately as possible. The fingerboard is adorned with PRS "Old-School" Bird inlays.
Unique through and through
Carlos Santana's playing style is as diverse as it is unique, with a wide-ranging tonal palette. The PRS Designed SE245 humbuckers in the neck and bridge positions allow you to draw upon a huge range of tones to explore your own sonic universe. The pickups are control using a very simple arrangement that comprises a master volume control, a master tone control and a 3-way toggle pickup selector.
As with Santana's own model, this one wouldn't be complete without a tremolo system onboard to give you the smoothest control over your vibrato. Fitted to this model is the superb PRS Designed tremolo, which provides a seamless connection between the strings and body. The headstock is fitted with PRS Designed tuners to keep your tuning secure no matter how enthusiastically you play.
The PRS SE Santana Limited Edition electric guitar combines the solid construction, superb playability and amazing tones that the SE Santana model is already highly regard for, in a unique finish that is normally the reserve of guitars carrying a much heftier price tag. This model is destined to become a much-coveted treasure, don't miss out on your chance and grab one whilst you can!
