An Iconic PRS Design

The Paul Reed Smith Santana solidbody electric guitar utilizes stunning flame maple and mahogany tonewoods to create its thick resonance with power and overtones. Its mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard boast the comfortable Santana neck carve and larger radius, and a pair of Santana humbuckers delivers the tone on which Carlos has built his legendary career. This is one of the most recognizable models in the Paul Reed Smith line, and for good reason.The PRS Santana is a must-have electric guitar for your collection.

PRS Santana Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Mahogany topped with flame maple
  • Santana pickups
  • Effortlessly playing neck
Mahogany topped with flame maple

PRS began by choosing the tried-and-true combination of high-quality mahogany topped with stunning flame maple. This combination gives this PRS Santana a rich yet balanced sound. The mahogany back delivers the natural tonal warmth and mid-focused tone that guitarists clamor for. And the brighter tone of the maple top adds clarity and sustain with a strong fundamental. Together these tonewoods give you an incredibly balanced sound.

Santana pickups

PRS guitars have been applauded for their Santana Treble and Bass pickups for years. These pickups - designed in collaboration with Carlos - have helped pave the way toward the warm, singing sound that is his instantly identifiable trademark. The Santana humbuckers are very detailed in the high end, but exude a fat and warm bottom with seemingly unending sustain. Throw on any of Santana's last few albums, and you'll know exactly what a great tone these pickups can deliver.

Effortlessly playing neck

The PRS Santana is built for melodic playing. Thanks to its larger 11.5" radius and shorter 24.5" scale, the strings have a fantastic feel under your fingers, and wide vibrato and large string bends come effortlessly. And the Santana neck profile's round, but not-too-substantial, feel is comfortable all the way up and down the neck. Sweetwater has seen a lot of Santanas come through our doors over the years, and we attribute that to how beautifully they all play.

It hasn't danced yet, but it sings

Weird science... just wiggle a little vibrato onto the string from the fretboard, and this beautiful girl will sing all night long. I thought the sustain and warm tone must be coming from some kind of pedal/amp combo. Sure, the 50 ft cord, line driver made of unobtanium, a wah pedal and 3 different amps color it in, but the basic voice is coming from a beautiful woman wearing mahogany and a pair of Santana model pickups. The attack, tone and wondrous sustain are hers alone. Wearing a beautiful maple top that combines with the mahogany for luscious tone, she is a classic beauty and seductive mistress. You won't be able to let her alone. Thanks to PRS for building her with his genius, to Santana for letting the public have "his" guitar, and to Ryan Wiltermood for being such a help with everything from selection to shipping.
Music background: Played dives and nice clubs alike as a young man.
