'Cuz You're So Smooth...

No guitarist's licks have polished the air quite as prominently as Carlos Santana's -- and your tones will reach new levels of sonic silkiness with your Paul Reed Smith Carlos Santana SE electric guitar. Santana's suave signature axe boasts a maple-topped mahogany body, a mahogany neck in a Wide Fat profile, a smooth rosewood fingerboard, 22 frets of close and comfortable action, cool old-school PRS bird position inlays, a pair of PRS Designed Santana humbuckers, single volume and single tone controls, a three-way pickup selector switch, and secure nickel hardware. Add a little bit of black magic to your arsenal of licks with this Santana-approved axe -- a gorgeous PRS artist model for a seriously nice price.

Super-Smooth PRS-Designed Santana Humbuckers

Santana's style is as loved as his tone, and your pair of PRS-designed Santana humbuckers deliver on all expectations. The Santana SE's neck pickup keeps your tone full of beefy mids and body without overdoing the low end. The bridge humbucker will brighten things up, providing just enough bite for your notes to cut through nicely when you want to steal the stage. Btoh pickups work together to project crystal-clear tones full of presence and beautiful articulation.

Mahogany Body with Flame Maple Top

Your PRS Carlos Santana SE axe features a rich-sounding mahogany body with an attractive maple top. A classic tonewood, mahogany will push the lows and mids of your notes for plenty of darkness and depth, while maple adds a rounded bright color to your sound for a little extra snap and bite. Both of these woods present a tone that's ready to allure anyone within earshot -- and the Santana SE's gloss-finished flame maple top is a treat for the eyes, too.

Wide Fat Mahogany Neck

Carved in PRS' "Wide Fat" profile, the Carlos Santana SE's mahogany neck rests comfortably in your hand, topped with a super-smooth 22-fret rosewood fingerboard. The action on this baby is nice and tight to let your licks flow effortlessly from your fingers to your amplifier. On the fretboard, you'll find PR bird position inlays to add a pleasant touch of visual flair to this SE's serious playability. Mr. Santana wouldn't have it any other way!

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (32 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "A great instrument at an affordable price!!"
Sound: The sound is as close to owning a REAL PRS Santana model as it gets! This instrument practically plays itself, all I do is press the frets and strum. Very expressive sound quality with rich tones and overdrive when I need it. I use a BOSS ME-70 multi effects pedal hooked up to my Peavey Valve King 112. The sustain on the guitar is most excellent and the .095-.043 strings are just what the doctor ordered for this PRS guitar! Feature: The gig bag is very well padded, roomy, and eye catching. Ease of Use: Easy to play and powerful. Quality: For the money, it's the best value out there. If you want PRS quality without having to take out a second mortgage, this is your instrument!! Value: Well worth the $$, you won't regret it! The Wow Factor: I just can't put it down once I start playing it! It feels like an old favorite T-shirt. You forget that you're wearing it!! Overall: This is one that will last me a long, long time. If it were stolen, I would definitely replace it! I chose this particular model because of the Santana Yellow paint, looks like it's been dipped in glass!!

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Super Guitar...Super Value"
Overall: I purchased this guitar on a whim. I wasn't planning on adding another guitar to my collection. I happened upon a review in Guitar Player magazine and it peeked my curiosity. I performed some additional research, checked-out Zzounds website and placed my order. I figured if I was less than satisfied, Zzounds return policy enabled me to return it..no questions asked. The guitar arrived next day. I removed it from the container, plugged it in and couldn't believe my ears. Great little guitar. Very comfortable to play. I use it frequently and after 6 months of ownership, I haven't tired of it. It's a good all around guitar. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a reasonably priced instrument.
