    Hey all. Curious if anyone here has any experience with a Santana Hollowbody? Found a PS model online that seems to tick all the boxes for me - hollow, 24 frets and a trem being the chief motivators.

    Unfortunately the guitar is across the country from me and they seem to be quite rare, so the chances of playing one before dropping a decent amount of money aren’t super high.

    Any firsthand experience with one? Thanks!

    I think it’d be a dream guitar for me, but going to West Virginia to check it out would be a nightmare.

    Right?! I’ve been chasing the dragon on these specs. I’ve got a couple nice 24 fret hollowbodies but I’d love a PRS trem!

    If you snatch it, you’d be doing me a favor. I’ve spent too much time and idle brainstorming looking at it.

    Plus, then you could go first and tell me all about it.

    If they would just return a message I may be able to give a report. No mention of paperwork or anything like that. We’ll see what they say. I’ve got some coins burning a hole in my pockets.

    I'm with Sergio on this one. If I were doing a PS, it would be a Santana, with holes, and three pickups. Plus a bunch of mini toggles.....some day.

    An employee model just showed up in my Reverb feed today. It looks great in my opinion. It is a 24 fret full Hollowbody Santana with a ten and P90’s. The back and neck is also flames maple. It’s selling from the UK but for what seems like a reasonable price all things considered. I don’t think we’re supposed to post links but if you can’t find it DM me and I’ll send you the link.
