PRS Guitars has announced the release of a brand-new Joe Walsh Signature McCarty 594. Joe Walsh, famous for his incredible history with both The Eagles and his solo career, found himself so impressed with a custom McCarty 594 sent to him by Paul Reed Smith that he called Paul and told him it was perfect the way it was.
"I don’t like new guitars, but out of the box this is absolutely perfect. All the stuff on a new guitar that I always have to try to fix, is already done here. Out of the box. Thank you, Paul." – Joe Walsh
This special edition features a bound, 24.594 inch scale length, 22-fret, Singlecut 594 base. With a pair of 58/15 LT + Pickups, volume and push/pull tone controls and an upper bout 3-way toggle pickup switch, the McCarty 594 is a fantastic beginning for a limited edition, signature guitar. The Joe Walsh Limited Edition adds a Brazilian Rosewood fretboard with stainless steel frets, adding to the already brilliant “playability and soulful, vintage tone.” The PRS 58/15 LT + Pickups are known for their vintage character while providing exceptional clarity and a focused midrange. The McCarty 594 makes quick work of providing precise humbucking tones just as effortless as it can pump out refined, single-coil voices.
A final touch from both of the legends responsible for this great, new addition to the PRS special edition collection, an actual hand written Paul Reed Smith signature on the front of the headstock, and Joe Walsh’s signature on the backplate of each guitar made.
From the PRS Guitars website: “Joe’s endorsement of the McCarty 594 Singlecut Joe Walsh Limited Edition means the world to me. We work very hard to keep pushing the guitar-making craft forward without losing sight of its rich history. The McCarty models have always embodied that, and to have a player like Joe Walsh say we’ve nailed it is heartwarming,” said Paul Reed Smith.
Only 200 of these Joe Walsh Limited Edition PRS McCarty 594 Singlecuts will be made, and as we approach June of 2021, they’re already very hard to find.
