    NGD: 2013 Santana in Jade!

    Finally got around to taking pics of the new Santana! Killer top and color.

    I am admittedly a Private Stock snob, but this guitar caught my eye, and I dig it!










    I dig the the new 2013 Birds, best birds IMO since they got rid of Old Birds!




    Pretty cool that this production PRS has a Private Stock Eagle, nice touch!




    The back is a translucent green, looks cool. The neck is also green, but much darker:




    I am only playing or buying 24.5" scale PRSi these days, and pretty much addicted to Private Stocks. On a whim I traded for this one from a guitar I received on a trade, and I am very surprised with how happy I am with the guitar, plays and sounds GREAT! Not too rough on the eyes either.

    Damn that's nice Pete! It looks Private Stock-ish. I love Santana's. Your first one? On second thought, strike that question. I know better.....

    Thanks!

    61st PRS, and believe it or not, first Santana!

    I did have 2 of the DC 22's, which were close to being Santana's...

    That really is a nice hue of green. I wasn't a fan of green guitars for quite a while but I must confess, I've come around.

    Sounds good, but please keep your pants on!! I would rather risk some buckle rash than explain to my wife and kids why there is a guy visiting playing my guitar with no pants on!

    I plan to gig the guitar in mid-June, I'll be giving it some buckle rash then anyway.

    Simple solution: Untuck T shirt, move belt buckle to the side away from the guitar, et voila - no more buckle rash!
