The SE Santana guitar has been a stalwart in the PRS catalogue since 2001. However, this unique Singlecut model pays tribute to Santana’s one-off gold leaf Private Stock PRS - a workhorse that he regularly plays onstage. This special instrument also sports different pickups to the ones in his standard SE signature model, featuring the TCI "S" humbuckers from the PRS Paul’s Guitar.
Body & Neck
PRS' SE Santana Singlecut Trem 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 body shape, the SE Santana Singlecut 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 Singlecut Trem also has 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 too!
Hardware & Electronics
The PRS SE Santana Singlecut 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 TCI “S” Treble and Bass pickups. The clarity and unique tones of these pickups are both big and nuanced, so that you can easily find your tonal sweet spot. They really capture that singing Santana-style sustain with overdrive too!
