  • $829.00

Commemorates 50 Years of Santana's Abraxas

Very few guitarists can claim a tone as immediately recognizable as Carlos Santana, and his signature PRS electric guitars are a huge part of that sound. The PRS SE Santana Abraxas 50th-anniversary Limited-edition guitar celebrates 50 years of Santana's groundbreaking sophomore album, 1970's Abraxas. This attention-grabbing solidbody electric guitar boasts top-tier construction, a solid mahogany body, a beveled maple top, a custom Abraxas graphic, and PRS Birds inlays. Beyond that, you get a pair of Santana "S" humbucking pickups, further nailing the tonal character that has made Santana a legend. The SE Santana Abraxas 50th-anniversary Limited-edition guitar is limited to 1,000 instruments built.

"Abraxas is a Santana record that changed my life. The songs, the recording quality, and the extraordinary playing and grooves helped shape my love of music and the way I play. Helping to honor that moment with Carlos is a joy for us," — Paul Reed Smith 

PRS-quality construction and hardware

The all-mahogany body of the SE Santana Abraxas 50th-anniversary Limited-edition gives you warm, detailed tones that make your music jump out of the guitar. The SE Santana's mahogany neck has a wide-fat carve, making it very comfortable for players who prefer a vintage feel. And the distinctive neck joint means you can reach all 24 frets easily for stellar high-fret access. The hardware is, as always, very stable and dependable. Take it from Sweetwater: you can count on the PRS-designed tremolo and tuners to keep the SE Santana in tune while allowing you to express yourself at home, onstage, or in the studio. 

Classy yet subtle appearance

To give the PRS SE Santana Abraxas 50th-anniversary Limited-edition a rich yet balanced sound, PRS began by choosing the tried-and-true combination of mahogany topped with maple. This instrument's mahogany body gives you natural tonal warmth, which is offset perfectly by the brighter tone of its beveled maple top. Together, these tonewoods yield an incredibly balanced sound with body and snap. What's more, the top of this solidbody electric guitar is adorned with a head-turning Abraxas angel graphic. As your eyes move up the SE Santana's rosewood fingerboard, you'll find the company's iconic birds in flight inlaid in beautiful mother-of-pearl. And Paul Reed Smith's signature adorns the headstock to complete this guitar's exquisite look. 

PRS-designed Santana "S" humbucking pickups

Whether you're going for those fluid tones of Carlos Santana or conjuring your own melodic stylings, the PRS-designed Santana "S" humbucking pickups loaded in this solidbody electric guitar make exploration of sound a joy. These pickups have been poured over by PRS and Carlos to get as close as possible to the US-made humbuckers Santana uses. You'll be able to enjoy the same levels of tonal detail, sustain, and thickness that have made Santana a legend. 

"It is an honor to co-join with PRS Guitars in celebrating the 50th anniversary of Abraxas with a new Santana SE Abraxas 50 guitar. Abraxas represents beauty, power, grace and the mystical, and PRS allows you to access this vocabulary at your fingertips with the universal tone that delivers power and clarity, allowing you to find your own voice in your heart's music.
