Most Probably best SE model
Xxlguru, 30.10.2018
Is it good? Definitely yes.
Does it sound good? Definitely yes. Maybe best SE Pickups I have heard. Plus even unplugged it sounds good. Resonant and nice sustain especially for the guitar with a tremolo.
Electronic is standard PRS SE. More expensive big Alpha pots with no name toggle switch and jack. So They haven't completely chap out and went mini pots.
Neck pickup is vintage output and sounds good. Clear sounding. Very usable. (7.5 K)
Bridge pickup is pretty hot (12,3 K). It it clear enough. Normally if some Eastern Company makes hot humbucker they kill high end and harmonics. This one is very pleasant surprise. When I say hot I mean Hard Rock hot not Gent hot. Hot that clean on the neck pickup and switching to bridge will start braking up on AC30.
Quite usable pickups. At level of some models of USA aftermarket companies. Still high end pickups will sound better as well as USA made electronics.
Neck is one peace mahogany with Indian Rosewood fretboard (cut before ban and cites proof). This should make it perfect.
Back is mahogany and doesn't look like ti is made of to many peaces.
Top is maple cap with fancy flamed layer on it.
Tuners are smooth and accurate.
Tremolo is vintage alike and pretty stable.
Now what is negative about it? Mine is nothing like on the product picture. Well grain ain't that straight. Body has a knot on the edge. Guitar made in USA would never have things like that. Actually with my luck I am kind of disappointed for such things for that money and from the WMI factory. Now that said guitar has sustain and it sounds very good. But it does not look like 868 Euro guitar and not like my other two PRS SE guitars made in WMI.

So features good. Simple electronics but one peace neck and other things mes it good.

But than 3 stars for way my guitar looks like.

Very good guitar
Benjamin622, 16.07.2017
The PRS SE Santana SY is a damn horny guitar.
Playability is also thanks to the short scale 1a.
She also got set up very well.
The sound is great, both clean and distorted. And what is important to me personally: The sound is balanced, all sounds are equally loud, even those on the high E string. Here most guitars, even many Fender models have their weak points.
Thumbs up, clear buy recommendation
