Carlos Santana's influence as a PRS guitar player led to the development of Paul Reed Smith's SE electric guitar series, which launched in 2001. In honor of that legacy, PRS has created the all-new SE Santana. The SE Santana is the first guitar in the SE series offered with a 24-1/2" scale length and is also the first SE created using the same silhouette as Carlos's revered American-made PRS models. The wide-fat mahogany neck promotes fleet fingering on the 22 frets adorned with "old school" birds while PRS-designed humbuckers offer clear, well-defined tones from clean, to crunch, to hot, full-crank mode. The PRS-designed tuners and PRS-designed tremolo keep you in tune no more how adventuresome your playing may become. This guitar and its appointments honor Santana's skill and style better than ever and offer players great quality and value. Case Sold Separately.

Very Nice Guitar Center!


from Palm Bay, FL

Comments about PRS SE Santana Electric Guitar:

I ordered the PRS SE Santana in black from Guitar Center 5 minutes before midnight on New Years eve for $613 out the door (thanks to their $100 off expiring a few minutes later). It finally arrived last night 1/18/11 in the pouring rain at 7pm. I opened the box, tuned it up and played for a couple hours. I played this afternoon for about 6 hours - it's still in tune. The action is low, the intonation is spot on, the pickups are beautiful clean and bite when cranked up. The glossy wide/fat neck is perfectly straight and smooth while the frets are dressed and polished very nice. Now I'm a satisfied player waiting for another great coupon from Guitar Center. Thank you.

Even Better Than Expected

By Lora Compton

from Arlington, TX

Comments about PRS SE Santana Electric Guitar:

I purchased the orange and it was much nicer than expected. Great sound, tone and color is fabulous. PRS makes quality guitars in all price points. You will not be sorry if you have your eye on this one, go for it!

Pure PRS

By TerryKathFan

from New York, NY

Comments about PRS SE Santana Electric Guitar:

Thus guitar is awesome. In the same league with American PRS guitars. You can spend 4 Thousand on an American but I will tell you the hardware and woods appear to be out of the PRS bin But you have to play it, the neck is fast but substantial and you can feel the body vibrate like a tuning fork. It resonates with tone. Pickups will sing your chords and the tremolo is great design and the guitar does not go out of tune. Give it a test run.

For the Santana fan with smaller wallets

By Jeff webb

from Portage, indiana

Comments about PRS SE Santana Electric Guitar:

This little guitar is giant on tone. It is a fabulous piece paying homage to one of the best guitarists of all time it is simply amazing when switched to the neck pickup it sounds just like a guitar bearing Carlos santanas name should sound. The neck is a little fat and takes a little bit to get used to but overall the guitar is well built and such a deal... A lot is made about the SE series being manufactured in Korea. The craftsmanship is just as evident on ths guitar as it is on my custom 22 built in the USA. It will be a part of my life as long as I have fingers and the will. I am a huge Santana fan and it is an honor to own a piece of santanas heart and soul

Sweet guitar

By James Bassler

from El Cajon, CA.

Comments about PRS SE Santana Electric Guitar:

I played 25 different guitars at Guitar Center while shopping, and when I picked this one up I knew I had to buy it. It has such crisp clear sound and the strings are very close to the frets, which makes it super easy to move around, and it's not hard on the fingers. I feel like the value of this guitar is much greater than what I paid. It feels like a custom made guitar just for me. If you buy this you won't be disappointed. They had a $150 off coupon which took the sting out of the price. I bought the Santana yellow,which has really pretty woodwork and craftsmanship, but I wish there were a larger variety of colors available than just four. I will not need to trade up from this guitar in the future. Nothing could come close.

Unbelievable guitar for an import, excellent playability.

By James Harmon

from San Antonio, TX

Comments about PRS SE Santana Electric Guitar:

I was looking for a guitar to half compliment and half oppose my '93 Hamer special. I was playing some SG's, and one of the sales people pointed out that this PRS played very well. I will be honest that I was a tad skeptical about a Korean PRS, but all that was blown out the window once I starting playing this guitar. I am honestly amazed that this is an import. From the way it looks to the way it plays, all around it is amazing. Put this guitar against the high-end Ephiphone's, and you will quickly see there is no comparison. The PRS pick-ups in this thing go from SG highs to Les Paul lows with the flip of the toggle switch. I do wish there were separate tone knobs for each pick-up, but I can easily live without them because of everything else this guitar has. I play rock of all era's and some Americana, and this guitar can do it all. I even play this through my Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier, and it's amazing. If you buy this guitar, you will not be let down.

Best guitar for the price

By Angel Lopez

from Zapopan, Jalisco

Comments about PRS SE Santana Electric Guitar:

Just got the PRS SE Santana, and i can't be more satisfied with all the features this guitar has in, the sound of the signature pickups are incredible for all the styles of music, not just santana bluesy style, you can play anything you want with it. The neck is confortable and faster than the gibson les paul's neck, the tremolo stays in tune very well although it has no locks on it. The paint on it its just beatiful.

Blown Away


from Redding, CA

Comments about PRS SE Santana Electric Guitar:

I got this guitar eight months ago. I gig regularly with it - and I hardly ever break out my Fender Strats. My Fernandes with sustainer and my shredder Ibanez are both gathering dust. I have an old "lawsuit" Les Paul copy that is a great guitar, but it can't stand up to the Santana SE. This axe is so resonant I can get sweet and controllable feedback at moderate volume and the tone shift is quiet and distinct with the pick-up toggle. Smooth neck, perfectly finished frets. It is clearly of better value and construction than the MSRP suggests. And it's as beautiful as it's bigger siblings at PRS. Tremolo is smooth - from subtle surf vibrato to a Jimmy dive bomb - I use it for both regularly and it stays closer to tune than either of my Strats. Would I get another? Just did. My wife ordered one of the Limited Edition quilted blue ones for me. Merry Christmas to me!

Love This Baby

By Steve Weidemann

from Lake Forest

Comments about PRS SE Santana Electric Guitar:

Ordered this online "blind" without actually having played it - based on its looks and rave reviews. The price was right, and I even got it with another $100 bucks knocked off during a recent sale. Timing is everything. I opted for the Orange which is more of a yellow-gold, and more beautiful than I expected. (Check out the photo I uploaded which shows off the flame maple top.) Great size and balance, and plays easily. Even though there is only 1 volume and 1 tone control, with a 3-way switch between the HBs, I really like the variety of sounds I get. I actually prefer having only 2-controls over the 4 I have on my Epiphone Dot. Added a set of Cobalts on this one and I expect to play this one for a long time. I'm not a pro, but I feel like one when I've got this one strapped on.
