Used 2018 Paul Reed Smith Private Stock McCarty 594 Trem Semi-Hollow Cedar
Named after Paul’s mentor, Ted McCarty, the McCarty 594 pays homage to vintage “Golden Era” instruments while incorporating modern build techniques for an instrument that is at once incredibly familiar and effortlessly playable.
There are several details that PRS has incorporated into the 594’s design that contribute to the guitar’s tone and feel, including:
A 24.594” scale length, just slightly longer than 24.5” and where the model gets its name
“58/15 LT” pickups. LT meaning low turns, which give this guitar a sweet lower-output tone
2 volume and 2 push/pull tone controls positioned so players can roll off both volume knobs at the same time, and with the added versatility of coil splits for more tonal options
A new Pattern Vintage neck carve. This neck carve shares the same width measurements as PRS’s Pattern neck, but is slightly thicker front to back and features an asymmetrical carve with a little less meat on the treble side, a little more on the bass side of the neck.
Tweaked Phase III tuners that have an added set screw to pull the tuner’s shaft, gear, and worm together, but with the tuner button taken out of play, to promote tone transfer from the string directly into the guitar itself with as little energy as possible being detracted.
