The title explains it. As I understand it, or I saw it somewhere, the Santana Retro is somewhat different from previous Santana models. I have often professed my confusion here. I tried a Santana at Chicago Music Exchange and the neck somewhat shocked me. Then I tried one somewhat later and the neck wasn't asoffensive. I tried one yet again yesterday, a 2014, and the neck didn't bother me at all. Maybe I'm growing up? I didn't plug it in; I just played it a little bit unplugged. It actually felt really sweet. I'm going back tomorrow, possibly, and spend some quality time with it plugged in. The specs of this one are: • Mahogany Body • Flame Maple 10 top • Mahogany Neck • Abalone “Santana” body inlay • V12 finish • Santana pickups • Bird inlays • New Eagle headstock inlay • 24.5 scale • Pattern neck carve weight 7lbs 8 oz. It's a charcoal burst. Purdy, Not my favorite but it's cheap enough I could live with it Thoughts on how this would be different from a new Retro?
