I've owned two of these a 2001 and a 2005 both were great and never a problem even with the tuners being just average. If you can string a guitar the right way, the thing stays in tune pretty well. With GHS Boomers 10-46 it's great even with the tremolo system. Pickups are good and if you want Dragons or HFS just spend the extra cash and try them. Since the guitar is less than half of your sound, it really works with a Marshall JCM 900 head and also the AVT50. Finish quality is a polyurethane coat that is very good.The neck and fret board are of good quality and feel great. I highly rec. this guitar to anyone who refuses to pay for overpriced USA guitars that sound very similar and easy to make some changes to get that sound. If you want a museum piece then get a USA PRS, if you want a Workhorse for a club gig then get any of these SE models. Played all of them and they work fine plus you don't have to worry about denting your 3K Guitar.Great price and a great axe for any level player.Just adjust to taste and have a good amp to do the work as well. Bottom Line is It Works!!

I had to take 1 back because the cream binding was scratched up. Found the same problem on 2 more before I found one that was ok. The high e string when played open has a very dead sound(Nut cut wrong). I would not buy another one. I traded a Shecter Gryphon for this guitar and it was a big mistake! Soon as I get a chance, I will get rid of this guitar and get an American Series Strat or Another Schecter, maybe C-1!

I know why It has a hard time staying in tune

By J>R.B

from New Jersey

I am very pleased with my Prs although after purchasing it I discoverd there were several factory defects that had to be taken care of. First of all the nut isnt cut right so I had to have the nut cut which was the reason it kept falling out or tune, 2nd the tone volume and sound volume crackled and finally the female part was loose. Other than that excellent sound.

just ok

By Scott-7i9Vr

from Cincinnati

I have owned this guitar for a few years now. Ever since I owned it I've had problems keeping the G string in tune. The problem has gotten worse over the years. I can only play for a few minutes before the G drops lower. Not very good distortion. I would recommend it for cleaner classic rock, but not hard rock/metal. Doesn't have much crunch to it. It does feel very good though. The reason I bought it was because of the fit/ease of play. Not a bad guitar if you can keep it in tune.

My Friend Owns It

By Parkerfly

from NY, NY

My friend owns this guitar and has raved about it. I myself am a Parker guy, but I gave this guitar a go and was fully satisfied. Plays fast, really got a good sound to it. The pickups are pretty good, i can't say much about the staying in tune issue but he says it stays it tune jsut fine. Can't really beat the price, if your thinking about a good guitar without dumping out tons of cash, look no further.

This is my first '10' rated guitar

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

This is a great quality guitar. this is a great looking guitar. This is a great priced guitar. And most importantly this is a great, great , great playing and sounding guitar. I was shopping for the epi 400 custom and found zthis one on the used rack. I am not a PRS man nor very experienced with their products except for the price which usually eliminates my consideration for PRS. they generally are pretty guitars for someone else. Playing the Santana Se was a wonderful awakening to a 10 rated guitar. I negotiated the price and this has to be the second best deal I ever finagled (a gibson custom for $350 was the best deal). I am very pleased with the quality of PRS over Ibanez, yamaha, gibson and especially over Fender. I still own Fenders and like them but this Santana really kicks the other axes a--es.As Waltler Brennan used to say..."No Brag just Fact."

GREAT BUY!!!

By Southerna7x91

from Kokomo, IN

This was my first real electric guitar, and I am still proud to have picked this out. This guitar has an all mahogany body which makes it lightweight, and it also allows your hand to move easily up and down the neck. The overall sound of the ax is great and the sustain is great too. This is great for heavy rhythms and it is also great for leads and solos. I hope this review is somewhat helpful!

It was alright

By joel-QHHu5

This guitar is not as good as the Santana SE2001 model, the pickguard makes it look odd. The choice of colors was bad also.

Great Guitar

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I just decided to review this because I put alot of weight in the reveiws i read, and they have helped me a ton when buying over the internet. This guitar is just an amazing guitar that the more i play the more i love. I have had it going on 2 years now, and loved it from the start. I did upgrade mine with SD pickups, and now it really screams. The stock pickups are great, on clean they are really great. But i had to get something alittle dirty. Other than that i just added some strap locks. I keep trying to upgrade guitars because i didn't spend a thousand bucks on this guitar, and i think of how good those most play and sound. Well I haven't found anything yet. Good guitar BUY IT!! Great for anyone from beginner to whatever, worth ever penny, and you can't say that about much these days.
