One of the Most stunning guitars I have seen come out of the PRS factory. The faded blue smoke burst with a black back wrap is phenomenal. You will be very happy to own this prime example of classic PRS design.
Carlos Santana's longstanding creative partnership with Paul Reed Smith has done much to shape the destiny of PRS Guitars. Over the years, we have honored this pivotal alliance by offering variations of his signature model instrument. The Santana Retro pays homage to the early "Pre-Factory" guitars Paul built for Carlos in the early 1980's. Several unique design elements are reintroduced on this model, including a deeper body carve, original style heel, and the original headstock shape and nut placement.
The Santana Retro blends history and modern manufacturing to create a highly musical guitar good enough for the man himself.
