Yeah, it seems like an unusual combination of "name endorsements".What the...???
EVH Wolfies in a Santana? Cool!
Indeed, I find it odd someone would buy the Santana model and take out the most significant thing (IMHO/AFAIK) that makes it sonically different from other PRSi (look at the available specs for Santana pups - they are "not smooth"). The maple capped hog body and hog neck with IRW fretboard make the rest of the guitar essentially the same as any old CU24, only the 24.5" scale really the difference.Nice guitar. I REALLY love the original pickups in my Santana II. I can't imagine why anyone would want to replace them. Clear, sweet and nasty if needed---they do it all.
But maybe that's what that owner wanted: a 24.5" scale traditional maple/hog PRS with tremolo but with his/her desired pups.
At any rate (~300 m/s), they sound pretty darned good so I'm gonna keep them in there. I've never swapped out pickups before, so I'm not sure I'm going to start now just to find out the replacements don't sound any better...
