    Belated NGD!

    I know I asked a while ago about older Santana SEs and was told, the newer ones were better. That being said, a month ago a 2003 rolled into view and the seller was willing to trade with me (no PRSi were given up by me). The two I traded were oddballs, and since that is what the seller wanted, everyone was happy. She is a closet queen for sure. She did have some minor electrical issues (bad 3-way and volume pot), so when I replaced them (parts cost reimbursed by the seller), I swapped out the pups for the HFS/Vintage Bass set. She sounds great. The one piece mahagony body is very light and resonant. I think she ways like 6 pounds, a real neck saver. She is a keeper!

    Joe ... They say having a dark side will lead to no good... I certainly hope so!

    Nice one!
    If something is too hard to do, then it's not worth doing. You just stick that guitar in the closet next to your short-wave radio, your karate outfit and your unicycle and we'll go inside and watch TV.

    Nice... All mahogany stoptail is always a winner!
    -I'm no expert, but it seems to work and I haven't electrocuted myself yet. Which is pretty much the standard I live by.

    Nice, mine's a keeper as well. Even if I wanted to sell it my wife wouldn't let me, it's the one she plays the most. These things are a steal, I can't believe how cheaply they sell.
