2001 PRS Santana III 10 Top finished in Turquoise Shell

Written by Jazz Brown

2001 PRS Santana III top 10 carried out in Turquoise Shell. A couple of very minor marks on the back of one’s body, but apart from those the instruments integrity is i’m all over this. The fret have been in great condition so that as clean since this instrument is I cannot imagine it’s been played much. The hardware does show some sings of getting older adding a good vintage patina. PRS introduced the Santana III model in 2000. It turned out like the flagship Santana II model but used more affordable materials much less ornate decoration, putting the Santana III from the reach of more guitarists (although 10-top flame was a possibility for this model).


The PRS Santana III a one-piece South American mahogany body using a two-piece curly maple top, a 24 fret, 24.5″ scale length, East Indian rosewood fretboard (with 10″ radius), PRS hallmark abalone bird inlays, Santana wide fat neck carve, PRS Tremolo, locking tuners and rear covers for your electronics and tremolo cavity. The Santana III pickups, personally approved by Carlos himself, were controlled by a simple 3-way selector, master volume and tone controls.

  • These instruments are really comfortable to experience and merely feel as if a vintage friend.
  • The strengths on this instrument are the Tuners, The Pickups and also the Trem. Viva Santana!
