1963There was something missing...Santana dates back to 1963, when the largest Danish music wholesaler, Brødrene Jørgensen, wanted something Danish in their range. They had it all: Martin, Gibson, Fender, Roland, Hammond and everything in between. - Missing was some Danish design!
1973TrademarkIn 1973, Santana was officially registered as a trademark. Erhardt Johansen, who was previously employed by Brødrene Jørgensen, subsequently took Santana with him to his own wholesale company Musikengros. Santana - named after Carlos Santana - was made in Japan, and quickly gained high status as they played, sounded absolutely fantastic, and could compete with other guitars in the same price range.
1998New designsKurt Smith started working for Musikengros in 1998, where he helped design some of the models we still sell today. For example, the LA90 series, which is characterized by being a great guitar for beginners.
2011ST-300In the year 2011, we wanted to start a new series of Santana acoustic guitars, and therefore applied for the guitar builders from TYMA, who manufactured i.a. Yamaha and Sigma. In collaboration with TYMA, we came up with the well-known ST-300 series.
2021ElectricBack in the day, Santana also made electric guitars. For many years the focus has solely been on making great, affordable acoustic & classical guitars and ukuleles.
