Perfect as a first guitar or the last guitar you’ll ever need, the PRS SE Santana Standard is a high-quality, articulate guitar for demanding players. With its shorter 24.5" scale length, the SE Santana Standard has a buttery, sweet tone that can go from Santana's signature lead tone to fat, hard rock rhythm chords. Featuring a stripped down, all-mahogany body (similar to Paul's Pre-Factory guitars), a set mahogany neck, rosewood fretboard with bird inlays, PRS patented molded tremolo, and Santana "S" humbuckers, the SE Santana Standard is a tribute to Carlos Santana's skill and style and offers players a great value and quality.
“With so many aspiring players struggling to stick with guitar past the first year, we knew we wanted to deliver an affordable quality guitar that players didn’t have to fight. We want the guitar to inspire you to play; it can’t be something you have to worry about staying in tune or simply working right. So while the [SE] Standards are our first foray into the below $500 price point, that doesn’t mean we compromised on tone, versatility, playability, or reliability,” said Jack Higginbotham, COO, PRS Guitars. “We’re very proud to offer these guitars to the world.”
