Here's a little nugget for all you PRS history buffs. This photograph of Paul was featured on page 52/53 of the Baltimore Sun on the 28th of November 1982.

According to the notes, this is Carlos Santana's guitar. Check out the trem and the caption (as it appeared in the paper) on the back.

Enjoy!

He was so broke back then, he couldn't even afford a haircut

Just realized that at the stroke of midnight, 5 years later from the publication date - I was born. I always miss out on the good stuff! haha

I'd call him "Patches" but the last tall/skinny dude I pissed off tagged me 3 times before I even put up my dukes.

We'll see bout that...

You're a nice guy with a big heart and you have guts too. That's a rare combo. I'm guessing life will be pretty good to you.

That was a cool time to live in the Baltimore-Washington Metro Area. The legal drinking age for beer and wine was still eighteen, and we still had large rock clubs.

Back then, he'd probably just gotten a haircut.

I managed the grab the 2nd original photo from that article. Should be here next week. I'll post a better copy of it for your enjoyment.

Notice how the old production artist removed the background before creating the half-tone. Those were the days when typesetters didn't have a mac to do that stuff.

Yes, that's Markie's old double-neck. It still belonged to Carlos in this photo.

And Hans calls me 'Zig Zag'?! LOL...great picture!

Hans and I have also been known to strike a Glenn Tipton/K.K. Downing pose at Markie's (Hans is obviously K.K.). :D

Hans is obviously KK. The long blonde hair gives it away.

Here's a pic of me and the Santana pre-production double neck. This isn't a shred face as much as it is a "I'm finally finished tuning it" face. I remember thinking Mark's either super-generous or a little crazy for letting me play it. Turns out both are true. :cool: Great guitar.

That is an awesome 'bark at the moon' face! I'm shaking my head thinking about the amount of money being slung around while you're in sock feet. :o
