Sorry, this item is not currently in stock2018 Paul Reed Smith McCarty 594 Semi-Hollowbody Limited Edition with Faded Blue Wrap Burst Finish
This PRS McCarty 594 Semi-hollow is the perfect combination of vintage guitar tone and playability mixed with the modern build quality that PRS guitars are known for. This guitar is the latest incarnation of the McCarty line, a series of guitars named after the legendary guitar designer Ted McCarty. Ted was an early mentor to Paul Reed Smith, who opted to name his more vintage-inspired guitars after him. The “594” comes from the guitars unusual scale length, 24.594”. PRS opted for this scale length as it was in tune with their measurements of some ‘50s-era Les Pauls. As such, this line represents the closest guitar PRS has ever made to a vintage Les Paul.
The vintage appointments don’t stop at the scale length. This guitar also features a “Pattern Vintage” neck carve which is their thickest profile and features a slightly asymmetrical feel that’s a bit fuller on the bass side. Additionally, it features their 58/15 “Low Turn” PAF style pickups for that classic sound electric guitarists know and love, but with the added clarity and sweetness from its underwound voice. The other features are all modern-PRS, including the bird inlays, Phase III locking tuners, and two piece zinc bridge.
The McCarty 594 originally debuted as part of their “Guitar of the Month” series in 2016 and was an instant hit. Since then, it’s existed as solidbody double- and singlecut versions as well as a fully hollow version. This particular version is from a limited edition run of semi-hollow 594s, which adds an extra degree of depth to the sound with its more resonant body. Its neck is thick but still very comfortable and remains wonderfully playable. Paul Reed Smith’s trademark versatility is here in spades as it handles tones from rocking to mellow with ease.
This guitar was well-kept by its previous owner but does show some signs of wear. There are some very light scratches in the space between the two pickups and some scratches/shallow dings on the back. We would rate this guitar in VERY GOOD+ to EXCELLENT condition.
