    Hello, I am looking at two guitars on line.
    PRS Santana Retro vs. Prs Santana 25th anniversary.
    Can anyone share their thoughts on the 2 models?
    Thanks, Chris

    The 25th comes with a cool case, otherwise I don’t think of them at all.

    The retro seems nice. I’m not into the aesthetics or knob placement on the 25th.

    Anytime. I can't comment on the 25th, I've not played one. One of the things I like about the Santana is the position of the knobs. Otherwise, I'd imagine they're pretty much the same. I kind of have played a Retro. I have 2 West St Ltd that would be similar, I'd think. Since the West St was based on "pre-factory" Santana.

    I like the retro too, in a 25th case.
