    Bit of a special NGD this one. Its a Collection Santana (or Stan Tanner as I like to call them). But they don't do a Collection Santana you say! Nope, this is a one-off.

    It has all the normal Collection appointments; Pernambuco neck, Madagascar fingerboard and headstock. South American Mahogany body with curly maple top. Mammoth ivory and paua Hollow Celtic Knot inlays. Nitro finish, 57/08 pups with Santana I switching. Colour is Faded McCarty Sunburst (and is luminous).

    Its pretty light at 7lbs 8oz. Going to have to brush up on my Santana switching. I had always assumed the pair of switches just controlled each pup, buts its plainly more complex than that

    While I don't own a Collection I recently had the privilege to play a few. I must say they were all very impressive. The mojo they possess is quite strong. I especially liked the BRW McCarty with 408's and the DGT. Coral Snake is a brilliant color as is the one used for the DGT. Great, great guitars.

    That collection DGT is awesome. Then the Brent Mason was brilliant. The one I really wanted to take home was the international V. It is amazing how they stepped it up for those guitars.

    Oooooh!!! I'm jealous. Congrats.

    Wow, that Santana collection electric looks really nice!

    So here's a demo track I did last week in which my Collection #004 (the first run, a McCarty with a vibrato) is the lead instrument.

    There are a couple of rough bits, playing-wise, but I really like the sound of the guitar overall.

    Mine is a complete and utter game changer for me. I haven't bought or even lusted after another guitar since:

    And here I was hoping you would get tired of it.
