Carlos Santana, the undisputed master of making a guitar cry first picked up a PRS in 1982 and by 88' he had his own signature model. Since then, they have endeavoured to make his signature tone's available to everyone.
With the release of the SE Santana Standard, PRS bring you a truly stunning guitar, packed with incredible tone, finished beautifully and all at an affordable price. This would make an ideal step up from your first electric guitar or, ideally, a first guitar that'll stand up to whatever you want to play with great style.
PRS have a reputation for great looking guitars. From the choice of stains on the body’s stunning woodgrain to the trademark bird inlays on the neck, they really are unique.
With a pair of P90's, this guitar has a brilliant, raw tone. Played clean you get a bright sound with great articulation but when you dial in the gain this guitar really finds its comfort zone. Santana himself is hardly a stranger to the overdriven tone and the pickups on this guitar are happiest when you turn up the power.
A P90 sits between single coils and humbuckers, but it’s fair to say that these have much more bite and treble than a Humbucker. They’re fat and full of midrange, more so than single coils. You can easily dial in the tone you want with single tone and volume controls and a 3-way selector.
The comfortable, body is light, well balanced and feels great to play. Alongside an equally comfy "" mahogany neck with a mellow, smooth rosewood fingerboard this guitar plays really well. The finish is smooth, crisp and clean and it looks great.
