Inspired by Carlos Santana’s Pre-Factory guitar, the Private Stock Santana Retro model balances several of Paul Reed Smith’s original design elements from the early 1980’s with modern designs and specifications. Like Paul’s original instruments, the Santana Retro has a deeper body carve and scoop and an original-style heel. The headstock shape is the same as the original guitars made for Carlos and has been moved closer to the body so that the nut place is more in line with historic specs.

Other specifications include a Private Stock grade maple top, mahogany back, purfling strips on the body glue joints, a 24 fret, 24.5” short scale length mahogany neck, “pre-factory” Santana inspired neck carve, Santana fret wire, PRS old-style birds and “pre-factory” Private Stock eagle inlays, high-gloss nitro finish, PRS locking tuners, an unplated PRS tremolo, and a paisley hardshell case. The electronics for this model include one volume and tone control with a 3-way toggle pickup selector.
