This. Guitar. Is. The. Pinnacle.

This is a one of a kind Paul Reed Smith Santana in Black/Trampas Green Binding from the PRS Experience Event. And it is a demo model – so that means savings!

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.

For 2020, this model has been updated with TCI-tuned pickups and nitro over cellulose (CAB) finish.

The COVID-19 Pandemic may have ruined the possibility for large social gatherings like The PRS Experience… But, that didn’t stop our friends in Stevensville, Maryland from crafting the small-batch, limited release instruments that people travel from all over the world to have an opportunity to buy! We are very proud to offer these commemorative instruments and are happy to go over what makes each one unique. Most of these specifications will never be replicated… At least not without forking over five-figures for a custom-built Private Stock.
