PRS Ltd Edition McCarty 594 Black Gold, Exposed Maple Edge Highlights

  • Limited Edition Core Series guitar from PRS
  • Unique 24.594" scale length and Pattern Vintage neck profile
  • Solid Mahogany back, with a Flamed Maple top
  • Gorgeous Black Gold finish, with an Exposed Maple edge
  • Two 58/15 LT Humbucker pickups deliver an array of vintage-style tones

Originally created as a "Private Stock Model of the Month" but made into a core production model due to popular demand, this incredibly familiar looking and effortlessly playable guitar is heavily inspired by the vintage PRS Core models, but with a few differences to hand.

McCarty 594 Body

  • Top Wood: Carved Figured Maple
  • Back Wood: Mahogany
  • Finish: Black Gold, with Exposed Maple Edge

The solid and relatively lightweight mahogany used in the construction of this guitar is a luthier's dream. This helps to give the guitar it's naturally warm voice, resonating at the perfect frequency for all of your harmonic needs.

In addition to this, the body is capped with a beautiful carved Flame Maple top with an exposed maple edge to add the finishing touches, and is capped with a Black Gold finish to give this guitar a truly unique look.

McCarty 594 Neck

  • Number of Frets: 22
  • Scale Length: 24.594"
  • Neck Wood: Mahogany
  • Neck Shape: Pattern Vintage
  • Fretboard: Ebony with Faux Bone Binding
  • Inlays: Birds

This model gets it's name as a combination of two things: the first (McCarty) is an homage from Paul Reed Smith to his friend and mentor, the legendary Ted McCarty. The second is the number 594, which simply refers to the unique scale length of this guitar - 24.594".

The unique Pattern Vintage style neck shares it's measurements with the PRS Pattern neck, but is constructed in a slightly asymmetrical manner: the neck is slightly thinner on the treble side, but slightly thicker on the bass side!

This comfortable-to-play, 22-fret neck feels as though you've been playing it forever, and is topped with an Ebony fingerboard and PRS Bird fret-markers, adding that little touch of extra class to an already beautiful instrument.

McCarty 594 Electronics

  • Pickups: 58/15 LT Treble (Bridge) and 58/15 LT Bass (Neck)
  • Controls: Two Volume & Two Push/Pull Tone Controls, 3-way Toggle Pickup Switch

The "LT" suffix of the 58/15 pickups on this guitar means "Low Turns", which essentially help to give the McCarty 594 a warm, yet clear tone. The coil tapping options housed within each tone control allows you to choose whether each pickup is set for rich, authentic, vintage Humbucking tones or nuanced, sweet Single Coil soun`ds, with the selector switch and highly accurate control knobs giving you a near endless array of tones to tweek when looking for those perfect sweet spots.

McCarty 594 Hardware

  • Bridge: PRS Two-Piece Stoptail, Cast Zinc
  • Tuners: Phase III Locking Tuners
  • Hardware Type: Nickel

The Phase III Locking Tuners that PRS have used in this guitar's construction work perfectly with the Two-Piece Stoptail bridge. A single added set screw on the tuners pulls the tuner's gear and worm together to prevent slipping, helping promote tone transfer from the string straight into the guitar with as little energy loss as possible.

When combined with the Two-Piece Stoptail Bridge, the McCarty 594 remains completely in tune with a neck that remains intonated through it's entire length, making for a perfectly pleasant playing experience in any situation.
