PRS McCarty 594 - Purple Mist with Hard Shell Case

Vintage Heart with Modern Playability: The PRS McCarty 594

The PRS McCarty 594 seamlessly blends vintage charm with modern playability, offering guitarists a versatile instrument that feels like an old friend from the moment it's in your hands. Crafted with a bound 22-fret Pattern Vintage neck and a slightly thicker back for enhanced tone and sustain, the McCarty 594 delivers impeccable intonation and a familiar, comfortable feel. Whether you're craving rich humbucking tones or nuanced single-coil sounds, this guitar effortlessly masters both realms, thanks to its 58/15 LT pickups, which have undergone the TCI process, and dual volume and push/pull tone controls. Anchored by a zinc two-piece bridge and vintage-style tuners, the McCarty 594 stays true to the legacy of the McCarty family.

A Tribute to Ted McCarty: Mentor and Friend

In the late 1980s, Paul Reed Smith enlisted the expertise of Ted McCarty for guidance in guitar design and production techniques. McCarty, a legendary figure in the industry, not only served as a mentor to Smith but also became a cherished friend to the entire PRS team. In 1994, PRS released the first McCarty guitar, a tribute to the knowledge and techniques shared by Ted McCarty and Paul Reed Smith. The McCarty 594 embodies the culmination of these experiences, offering players a guitar that reflects decades of craftsmanship and innovation.

Impeccable Craftsmanship and Timeless Design

The PRS McCarty 594 features a solidbody construction with a maple top and mahogany back, adorned with a violin carve that adds to its vintage aesthetic. The neck, crafted from mahogany, boasts a Pattern Vintage shape for optimal comfort and playability. With a rosewood fretboard, faux bone binding, and iconic Birds inlay, the McCarty 594 exudes elegance and style. Finished with vintage-style hardware, including a PRS Two-Piece bridge and nickel tuners, this guitar is as visually stunning as it is sonically rich.
