Video: Carlos Santana on His New PRS, Divinity, and Your Immutable Worth

If only all NAMM interviews could be so enlightening.

Yesterday, Joe Shadid got the chance to sit down with Carlos Santana at the Paul Reed Smith booth to ask about the new SE Santana Singlecut Trem. As you can hear in the video above, Santana provides plenty of reasons to get one of the new axes: their solid build-quality, intonation, and sound, as well as Paul's personal, impeccable integrity.

At $849 USD, the SE Singlecut may not have all the trappings of the custom model it's based on, but it's a great tool all the same. And Santana goes on to explain why it's important to put such tools to good use, why he wants more guitar players than ever in the great cosmic guitar army—to penetrate hearts, give voice to both divinity and base desires alike, to remind each listener of their own immutable significance.

So, if you'd like an instrument worthy of such a campaign, you can click here to get your own on Reverb now. And if you, like Santana, want to "create a new dimension" with your artistry, be sure to listen to the whole interview above for more words of wisdom.
