PRS Guitars reveals new McCarty 594 model

McCarty 594

The new model comes in a variety of finishes: Blood Orange, Black Gold Burst, Charcoal Burst, Fire Red Burst and Faded Whale.

New guitar said to be inspired by vintage instruments.

PRS Guitars has revealed its latest model – the McCarty 594.

The vintage-inspired instrument is designed to deliver rich, humbucking tones and nuanced single-coil sounds via its 58/15 LT pickups and push/pull coil taps on the tone controls.

Other features include a figured maple top, mahogany back, 22-fret Pattern Vintage mahogany neck, rosewood with binding fingerboard, Bird fingerboard inlays, PRS two-piece stoptail bridge with tweaked Phase III locking tuners, 58/15 LT treble and bass pickups, two volume and a two push/pull tone controls with a three-way toggle pickup switch on the upper bout.

Guitarist John Mayer has already been singing the McCarty’s praises, stating: “The 594 is the best new guitar I've played in years. It has a vintage heart and soul but without the technical limitations that usually come along with an old instrument. What good is an old guitar if you can't get all that feel out of the upper frets, or the intonation is off? To hear that old PAF sound but be able to articulate the notes in a way that only modern manufacturing could allow is so exciting.”

The PRS McCarty 594 retails at £4,260/€6,659 and is available in the following finishes; Blood Orange, Black Gold Burst, Charcoal Burst, Fire Red Burst, Faded Whale.
