Sometime ago I tried a PRS Santana at the Chicago Music Exchange and was shocked.  I was devastated.  The neck felt like a tree trunk.  Until then I was sure that, at some point I was going to play a signature model of my guitar idol.

So recently I went into our local PRS dealer to try a PRS Special Semi-hollowbody.  And on the wall was this Santana.  I thought why not at least try it again before trying in the other one?  And I don't know why but the neck felt great!  I don't know if my preferences have changed.  Or has my playing progressed a little to where I am adapting?  Or just this particular neck isn't quite as chunky?  (Or, possibly most likely, I am rationalizing so I can have my Santana?)

And it played and sounded amazing. 

Anyway, the PRS Special Semi-hollowbody never came off the wall😁😉
