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 specification.
Other select features include Private Stock grade quilted maple top, mahogany back purflings 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. The electronics for this model include one volume and tone controls with a three way switch.
