Overview

PRS McCarty 594, McCarty Sunburst, Pattern Vintage Neck, Ebony Fingerboard, 58/15 LT Pickups, 2-Piece PRS Stoptail

The PRS Core instrument range is the beating heart of the company, fully utilising PRS's rich heritage to deliver guitars with perfect tone, incredible playability, and an unparalleled aesthetic beauty. A recent addition to the Core range is the McCarty 594, seen here in a stunning McCarty Sunburst finish.

Vintage Heart with Modern Playability

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 the vintage PRS Core models, but with a few differences to hand.

Body

  • Top Wood: Carved Figured Maple
  • Back Wood: Mahogany
  • Finish: McCarty Sunburst

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. The body is fitted with a beautiful carved Figured Maple top to add the finishing touches, combining perfectly with the McCarty Sunburst finish to give this guitar a truly unique look.

Neck

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

The 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, is topped with an Ebony fretboard and adorned with the PRS Bird inlays, adding that little touch of extra class to an already beautiful instrument.

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.

Other 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.

With a price that's certainly not for the faint of heart, this guitar is most definitely more of an investment than a "spur of the moment buy", however our range of finance options can help make this much more palatable (including our exclusive 0% finance option). Contact our sales team directly if you have any queries related to our finance and delivery options.
