PRS McCarty Singlecut 594 10-Top - McCarty Sunburst

Another hand selected behemoth from the master craftsmen over at PRS, this McCarty 594 is a substantial and wonderful playing machine! The tones that come out of this small combination of woods, metals, and plastics are truly breathtaking. There is an overall warmth and organic response to this instrument. The mid range is present and there is a nice honk to some of the tones reminiscent of a vintage Les Paul. The bass grumbles without becoming too throaty and the highs are the least piercing of an instrument we have heard in quite awhile.

The neck is the pattern vintage carve and it does have a very full feel to it. This one is slightly larger than most pattern vintage necks we've played of late. It immediately felt comfortable in our hands. It is similar to an R8 without being too overwhelming for those a but scared off by chunkier necks. 

The finish has a spectacular soft gradience on the first, bathing the curves in the wood just so to create a "lemon tiger" effect. We all love the classic look of the instrument and with the mixed hardware there is just the right amount of ornamentation put on her. 

  • 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 the guitar a warm, clear tone.
  • 2 volume and 2 tone controls positioned so players can roll off both volume knobs at the same time.
  • The added versatility of push/pull coil taps for each pickup for more tonal options
  • A Pattern Vintage neck carve, which 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 and a little more meat on the bass side of the neck.
  • Tweaked Phase III tuners have an added set screw that pulls the tuner’s gear and worm together (while “locking” over the worm to prevent slipping) to promote tone transfer from the string directly into the guitar with as little energy as possible being detracted. (The tuner functions identically to standard Phase III tuners for re-stringing. Set screws must NOT be adjusted outside of the PRS factory. Making any adjustments to this feature may cause the tuner to stop functioning properly.)
