    Hello All! Hope you can help.
    I'm looking for any info on a Santana Brazilian. Hand written Serial 3 80029 with a 10 in the upper corner.
    There isn't much info out there on it.
    I think it is a 2003 by the serial. Please correct me if I am wrong. Also how many were made & of course value.
    Thanks in advance!

    Customer service can help in verifying the model and construction info, and possibly a rough production number. I don’t own a Santana, but a Brazilian necked one sounds like a winner!

    If its one of the limited run, it should have a backplate engraved like this:

    Ah....even if one were available, I'm sure it would be out of my price range. I'm sure they're easily into 5 digits.

    EDIT: Well, there's at least one on Reverb, and it's not too highly priced. More than I am willing to part with at the time, though.

    Not the first time you’ve made and offer and it’s been accepted.

    I have one, #153 in Santana Yellow. Bought it from Brian Meader when he was at Chuck's. As good as you imagine it may sound, it sounds even better. :)

    It's never going anywhere ... NEVER I tell you!

    I'm off the hook. The Reverb listing I was looking at had already "Ended". Guess it was an old listing.

    Nah, I don't think so. If I find one, it's going to be PS money. I don't have that to spend. At least not in a disposable fashion. However, I do have an itch for something Explorer shaped (but not from G).

    There is a very sweet looking 2007 Santana Brazilian that just appeared on a well know guitar shop's used PRS webpage. You know the shop, it's up there in the state of the Green Bay Packers. ;)

    I played this guitar on Wednesday. Looks even better in person.
