And I could have bought her?
Amazing to think this is now considered Vintage..original San Dimas era..
This may have been the guitar Santana was playing just before PRS convinced him to play theirs.
Bill Lawrence designed the pickups and the rotary switch circuit
Ergonomics are very much SG in flavor with the bridge position causing an extra long neck feel.

My friend wishes he hung on to his
