PRS Santana II Salmon, 2000

Built from 1999 to 2007, the PRS Santana II updated the Santana I model introduced in 1995, and was succeeded by the Santana III. All followed the same basic formula of a carved Maple cap on a Mahogany body, with a set Mahogany neck and 11.5 inch radius Rosewood fingerboard. The PRS Santana II has been the most expensive of the three models, with Artist-grade matched flamed Maple tops, high grade and Brazilian Rosewood for the fingerboard and head plate.

⚌Reduced‼ Fender Pre-CBS Stratocaster Sunburst, 1964

⚌Reduced‼ Fender Pre-CBS Stratocaster Sunburst, 1964

Here’s something we see fewer of – a Fender Pre-CBS Stratocaster in Sunburst, with a body date of 9/63 and neck date of March 1964. This type of ‘date mismatch’ has been common in some periods of Fender production. The factory would build and finish a larger number of bodies and store them, with the necks built closer to the sale and delivery date. The potentiometers date to 1963.
