PRS McCarty 594 Single Cut 10 Top EXP Pattern Vintage Copperhead 2020 Ltd Brazilian Rosewood Fretboard
This PRS McCarty 594 SC EXP 10 Top is stunning and has just arrived! It is upgraded with hybrid hardware and a Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard and a Indian rosewood neck. While the Copperhead finish may make this 594 worthy of being trophy mounted above the mantle, this PRS gem is indeed ready for the stage or the studio! This guitar is part of the EXP or "experience" selection which was a special selection to be unveiled at the 2020 PRS Experience event in Maryland. Unfortunately the event was canceled due to Covid. The guitars were still built and sold to Premier dealers for their customers to enjoy.
The McCarty family of guitars are born from passion and precision: built passionately to embody vintage appointments and tone while utilizing the precision of PRS’s modern manufacturing techniques. Whether you are looking for rich, authentic humbucking tones or nuanced, sweet single-coil sounds, the McCarty Singlecut 594 can seamlessly master both sonic territories thanks to the 58/15 LT+ pickups and push/pull coil taps on the tone controls. The electronics layout, a few key specifications, and PRS craftsmanship combine in the McCarty Singlecut 594 to create an instrument that plays in tune, keeps its intonation across the entire length of the neck and feels like a guitar that you’ve been playing forever.
The McCarty Singlecut 594 has been meticulously spec’d to deliver a familiar feel and warm, vintage tone, featuring a bound, 22-fret, 24.594” scale length Pattern Vintage neck, a slightly thicker back for enhanced tone and sustain, and 58/15 LT+ treble and bass pickups, which have now been through the TCI (tuned capacitance and inductance) process. 58/15 LT+ pickups offer exceptional clarity, focused midrange, and vintage character. The McCarty Singlecut 594 model is anchored by a zinc two-piece stoptail bridge with brass saddles and studs for added resonance and vintage-style tuners.
“One of my sayings is that everything that touches the string is God – well, that’s really the bridge, the nut, and the tuners. The updates to the McCarty family make a huge difference in their tone. The guitar sustains longer and the tone has more character,” said Paul Reed Smith.
For 2020, PRS has updated this model with TCI-tuned pickups and nitro over celluose (CAB) finish.
