The SE Santana model has been a stalwart in the PRS catalogue since 2001. A more affordable version of Carlos Santana's full-fat, US-made signature guitar; the PRS SE Santana offers the same stunning aesthetics, ergonomic feel and smooth humbucking tones with its distinctive near-symmetrical body shape, 'Wide Fat' neck and custom Santana "S" pickups respectively.
Body & Neck
PRS' SE Santana guitar boasts a Mahogany body, delivering a warm sound with plenty of harmonic richness in the mid-range. Featuring ergonomic contours around the entirety of its double-cut shape, the SE Santana has a cozy feel that allows you to play without hindrance or discomfort.
Joining the SE Santana's body is a Mahogany neck carved to PRS' vintage-like "Wide Fat" profile. Offering a substantial and supportive feel that traditionalists will certainly appreciate, the PRS SE Santana also sports a silky smooth Rosewood fingerboard that provides a luxurious touch under the fingers. With a modest 24.5" scale length, soulful string bends and wide Santana-esque vibrato techniques should feel effortless!
Hardware & Electronics
The PRS SE Santana is fitted with reliable, high-quality hardware that'll simply never let you down when playing onstage or recording in the studio. Equipped with PRS' patented "Molded" tremolo, this beautifully-machined bridge is superbly-ergonomic with its smooth design and predictable spring resistance. At the other end of the instrument you'll find a set of PRS machine heads; keeping your tuning super-solid.
This versatile instrument gets most of its voice from its pair of Santana “S” pickups. With a medium output, these well-rounded pickups sound vibrant and clear with clean amp settings yet pump out plenty of punchiness with overdrive or distortion, while offering that singing Santana-style sustain!
