This is the latest version of the PRS SE Satana Signature model. The new SE Santana model is the same silhouette as his USA signature model and now features the legendary PRS Bird inlays. The black finish was introduced mid way through 2011 and looks awesome.
We know of a few guitarists who own original USA PRS Santana models who have been so impressed with the new SE Santana they just had to buy one.
The SE Santana was the first ever PRS SE model made, Carlos wanted a guitar that his students could play and afford. PRS SE guitars offer exceptional value for money providing fantastic quality and components at a much more affordable price than the USA models.
We believe that PRS SE guitars are the best made guitars available for under £1000, the PRS designed hardware and exceptional craftsmanship create a fantastic instrument for any guitarist - student or professional.

The PRS SE line of electric and acoustic guitars offer exceptional value for money providing exceptional quality and components at a price any guitarist can afford. The first PRS SE Model to be introduced was the PRS SE Santana in 2001, Carlos Santana is a long standing PRS endorsee and has been honoured with several signature models over the years. Carlos Santana wanted a signature model that his students could afford, hence the PRS ‘Student Edition’ was born. Since its introduction in 2001 the SE Line has been expanded to feature 19 models including 11 signature models. One of the most popular SE signature models comes from another long standing PRS endorsee, Mark Tremonti of Alter Bridge. All PRS SE models feature the classic PRS silhouettes and most now have the option of the classic PRS Bird Inlays on the fretboard. The guitars are designed by the team at PRS and then built in carefully selected factories in Korea, all the hardware and pickups are designed by PRS using the same technology and experience as their USA models. In late 2011 PRS Introduced a new range of SE Acoustics which once again raised the bar for what can be expected from a guitar sub £1000. We believe PRS SE guitars to be the best guitars available for under £1000, many of the models fall well below this price point starting at just £399.00. The PRS SE range is perfect for a beginner or professional alike providing unparalleled quality, tone and value for money.
