PRS SE Santana Single Cut Trem, Egyptian Gold
The PRS SE Santana Singlecut Trem pays tribute to Santana’s one-off gold leaf Private Stock PRS. Modelled after the workhorse gold leaf guitar that Carlos plays on stage, the SE version of this special instrument began when Santana heard the 2018 Paul's Guitar TCI pickups. Impressed with their tone, Santana requested a set of those pickups without the coil taps, and from there, TCI "S" pickups were born. Wanting to capture their full-range tone in a special model, Santana and Paul looked to Santana’s personal instruments and choose the gold leaf Singlecut.
Additional features include the classic Santana/PRS combination of a 24.5in scale length, 24 frets, and a tremolo bridge, the SE Santana Singlecut Trem, providing two full octaves with the comfort of a shorter-scale guitar.
"When I think of PRS I think of impeccable integrity! Right out of the case, the guitar looks and feels incredible, but for me it is about the sound, resonance, vibration that allows me to take flight with every note. The SE Santana Singlecut Trem has a range and universal tone that delivers with power and clarity, allowing you to find your own voice in your heart’s music. It is an honor to add this beautiful guitar to the PRS SE line that I helped start so many years ago. We invite you to spread your wings and find your voice with this beautiful instrument!" - Carlos Santana

Excellent guitar, sounds amazing. One of the rarest specs (short scale, 24 frets with a trem). Am very glad I bought this while it was still in stock and at an excellent price. Thanks GAK.
Build quality is excellent. Most PRS SEs are a decent build but this is a cut above. Out of the box, fitted with 9s, I couldn't fault the set up. An hour later, a set of 10s, a tweak of relief and it's just great. The rolled edge fretboard is neat and the fret work is second to none, well done the Indonesian firm who are making these for PRS. The pick ups are guide hot, had to roll back the compression on my Helix
