2016 PRS McCarty 594 - Violet - 10 Top
For your consideration, Garrett Park Guitars presents this 2016 PRS McCarty 594, 10 Top in Violet
PRS is known for their gorgeous guitars and this McCarty 594 is no exception. Aside from its handsome looks, this McCarty 594 is fitted with locking tuners, PRS 58115 LT Humbuckers, and pearlescent fretboard inlays and binding. All in all, a beautiful yet powerful guitar.
A few key specifications that contribute to the McCarty 594’s tone and feel are:
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 control's 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.
"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." – John Mayer
"I think a lot of people know PRS as a company that is looking to history, innovating, and improving all at the same time. The McCarty 594 is a great example of that culture. I believe it to be a great musical instrument… quality, playability, and tone. It is also, as the ad says, subtly very different. When we were developing the 594, we examined everything: the scale length, the tuners, the bridge materials, the nut material, the pickups, the neck shape...... every piece of this instrument was designed to be exactly what we thought it needed to be to add up to the best instrument we could make. The final guitar, in my experience, is more than the sum of its parts. My hope is it is a source of joy and real musicality for everyone who picks one up. So far, it seems to be doing its job in that regard" – Paul Reed Smith
