    Comparing the body shape of a Santana model to the normal PRS body shape, I can obviously see that the upper horn is a lot smaller, almost mirroring the cutout of the lower horn. But what about the other end of the body, the back end where the other strap button is? Is that end of the body more rounded (like a circle) than a normal PRS shape?

    I would like to acknowledge this particular moment in history, when Sergio complimented a blue guitar.

    I haven’t measured my Carloses in relation to my other PRS’ but I think you might be onto something. I feel like there’s more surface area for my forearm but not sure if the smaller horns just do something to the balance of the guitar or not.

    Also unless you have Jack Skellington fingers, the controls are way back by the bridge and you will not be able to do volume swells, unless you get a 25th Anniversary or an MD, which moved the volume knob to where it is on the DGT.

    Gulp!

    I’ll take three!



    Do you have any photos of the back of the second red one please?


    wow!

    The Santana has a rounded little bottom. It’s not a perfect circle, although the eye fools you into thinking that it is! There are some very subtle curves on the Santana, a true piece of artistry by PRSh.

    Here's a visual aid! I'd describe the Santana body shape as Whole Lotta Rosie!

    Randomly, I met the new owner on TGP who resides in Texas. I let him know if he wants to sell it to contact me. He said fat chance! Oh well, it at least it’s with a good owner now.
