"PRS Santana SE"

PRS SE Santana - BlackPublished on 08/03/10 at 15:00
Ok now we've read all the other reviews. No one mentioned the great playing rosewood fretboards or flawless jumbo frets. Plus being an absolutely beautiful Tobacco Sunburst finish on a one piece mohagany body as well as the same for the set neck. Makes this the perfect platform for a very fine touring and recording guitar. With that and it's great low price, I bought one and with only a few mods it's the go to guitar.
First off I replaced the non-locking tuners with Grover Rotomatics. The saddle issues mentioned with a set of Graph-Tech PRS Santana SE saddles and their Tusk self lubricating nut (can be bought as a set for this model. I had it set up by a pro and wow! It stays in tune......

First off I replaced the non-locking tuners with Grover Rotomatics. The saddle issues mentioned with a set of Graph-Tech PRS Santana SE saddles and their Tusk self lubricating nut (can be bought as a set for this model. I had it set up by a pro and wow! It stays in tune for weeks even when I use the tremolo, and it's now a resonating, sustaining dream. I also changed the bridge pickup to a Seymore Duncan JB4, the pots for CTS ones with orange drop caps, and a set of D'Adarrio XL 10's and now it is a gigging and recording tone monster! It truly is a players guitar and will now easily keep up with and surpass many U.S. humbuckered Strats, Teles or Sg's and a few cheaper Pauls and definately anything offshore. All of these mods cost less than $400 installed, and lots less if you can do the work yourself. I own in total 13 guitar and 8 basses all of which are U.S. and/or

It originally sold for the regular dealer price (don't remember) at the local PRS dealer here in southern Ontario, Canada. Where it was bought and modded by me.

With these modifications I love everthing about it, even the stock neck pickup shines for cleans and overdriven/bluesy tones with the new pots and Graph-Tech parts etc..

The big neck heel...but it's really not a big deal.

see above

It may seem like a lot of money for a guitar that costs not too much more than the mods but for under a $1000 you get a guitar that tone wise will keep up to the best of them, and with great playablity that together can't be rivaled at this price point buy anyone.

PRS SE Santana - BlackPublished on 01/19/04 at 15:00
I Bought this fantastic axe for 850€ (close to 1020 USD) at Faminho in Portugal (Yeah, that's right. I'm Portuguese). I was in the market for a double humbucker guitar and... this IS a PRS!!!

Everything! I mean, have you heard it's tone? It's fantastic. The fingerboard is very smooth and extremely fast. Playability is great and the sound is full and rich.

..unhh!!! Dificult! Maybe I'd like it to have separate tone control for each pickup... but it doesn´t bother me that much! It doesn't have locking tunners but it keeps tune just fine.

It's really solid!! Built like a tank, I'd say, and still manages to be quite light!! Don't think I'll ever have a problem with this unit. I think......

Fantastic!!! I play this guitar through a Line6 POD and into a Fender RockPro 1000!! It's a killer sound. I usually play lead guitar based on Eric Clapton, Gary Moore, Pink Floyd, Queen and, of course, Santana. The versatility of this piece of equipment is oustanding. This baby sunk my Fender Stratocaster to reserve status and I use it on live gigs all the time... it became my main guitar.

I bought this superb axe from FAMINHO in Famalicão (Portugal) for €850 (about the same amount in USD). Why did I bought it? Well, I was looking for a humbucker based guitar and found this amazing piece of equipment… come on, it’s a PRS (even if it is Korean made).

I love everything about this guitar. For starters, it’s extremely beautiful (mine is dark brown woodlike colour… I think it’s Mahogany Black Sunburst, but I’m not sure. That colour does not appear in PRS site as one of the available colours for the SE! Don’t know how I got it, but I love it…)! It’s really light (compared to a Gibson) and the neck fit’s me perfectly and the strap buttons seem sturdy. There’s a......

It’s really light (compared to a Gibson) and the neck fit’s me perfectly and the strap buttons seem sturdy. There’s a small buzz on the A string, but nothing special… As for the sound, just one word: PERFECT for a guitar with this price range. I mean it’s a full, warm yet a little dark sound. Maybe not as powerful as some of the “extreme metal” players would like, but since I mostly play blues and rock&roll it suits me fine. I play it through a Line6 POD and a Fender Rockpro 1000! The result is great.

I haven’t found any major complaints about this guitar yet. I would like to have locking tuners, so maybe I’ll upgrade them in the future.

This guitar seems quite solid. No finish flaws or anything. Built to last, I’d say…

Bottom line: an excellent buy!! Perfect tone and intonation, incredibly lasting sustain, fantastic neck. There’s no way you’ll get a better guitar for nowhere near this kind of price. I’ve been playing an Epiphone Les Paul and the is no possible comparison… the PRS blows the competition away. On live gigs I use both this guitar and my Eric Clapton Stratocaster. I love them both, yet the “Claptoncaster” was much more expensive. This PRS really rocks…
