Celebrating History

The Santana Retro pays homage to the early “Pre-Factory” guitars Paul built for Carlos in the early 1980’s. Several unique design elements are reintroduced on this model, including a deeper body carve, original style heel, and the original headstock shape and nut placement.

The Santana Retro blends history and modern manufacturing to create a highly musical guitar good enough for the man himself.
