DESCRIPTION

Paul Reed Smith PRS Private Stock #9780 McCarty 594 Brazilian Spalted Maple Top Natural with Dark Cherry Glow

Private Stock program began in 1996 as a way to bring instruments that Paul envisioned to light outside the normal manufacturing process. Our Private Stock program represents the highest quality of materials, the most personally crafted instruments, and the greatest level of customization at PRS. No matter what specifications you choose, every guitar is carefully conceived and built with a “one-off” mentality. Ultimately through this program, we strive to provide you with an instrument that is equally as good as an heirloom to be treasured and a tool to make music.

Vintage Heart with Modern Playability

The McCarty 594 is a versatile, vintage-inspired instrument that is effortlessly playable. Featuring a bound 22-fret Pattern Vintage neck and slightly thicker back for more enhanced tone and sustain, the McCarty 594 plays in tune, is intonated the entire length of the neck, and feels like a guitar you’ve been playing forever. Whether you are looking for rich, authentic humbucking tones or nuanced, sweet single-coil sounds, the McCarty 594 can seamlessly master both sonic territories thanks to its 58/15 LT pickups, which have now been through the TCI (tuned capacitance and inductance) process, and dual volume and push/pull tone controls. A zinc two-piece bridge and vintage-style tuners anchor this guitar and stay true to the promise of the McCarty family.

“One of my sayings is that everything that touches the string is God – well, that’s really the bridge, the nut, and the tuners. The updates to the McCarty family make a huge difference in their tone. The guitar sustains longer and the tone has more character,” said Paul Reed Smith.

In the late 1980’s, Paul Reed Smith called on Ted McCarty to consult with him on guitar design and production techniques. He not only served as a mentor but became a great friend of Paul and everyone he met at PRS. In 1994, PRS released the first McCarty, an instrument that incorporated the full spectrum of techniques and knowledge Paul had gained from Ted as well as his own experiences as a guitar builder.
