The Altitude Summary

This guitar is unbelievable - it sounds and feels like a dream.  We've played a lot of PRS guitars and this one truly is special.  The tones produced with the F-hole and lightweight feel breath into the classic appointments and vintage-influenced electronics.  The overall condition of this guitar is Excellent - it has a small amount of finish checking around the low E tuner (pictured) and a couple small surface scratches that are very hard to photograph.  This one is a shop favorite between the elegant but aggressive finish/top, and overall playability.

Vintage Heart with Modern Playability

The McCarty 594 is a versatile, vintage-inspired instrument that is incredibly easy to play. It features a bound 22-fret Pattern Vintage neck and a slightly thicker back for enhanced tone and sustain. The guitar stays in tune, is intonated throughout the entire neck, and feels like a familiar instrument. With its 58/15 LT pickups, which have undergone the TCI (tuned capacitance and inductance) process, and dual volume and push/pull tone controls, the McCarty 594 can effortlessly master both rich humbucking tones and sweet single-coil sounds. The guitar's zinc two-piece bridge and vintage-style tuners uphold the promise of the McCarty family.

“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.

In the late 1980's, Paul Reed Smith and Ted McCarty collaborated on guitar design and production techniques. McCarty, a mentor and friend, influenced the first McCarty guitar released by PRS in 1994. This instrument embodied the combined expertise and techniques of both Smith and McCarty, resulting in a truly innovative guitar.

Semi-Hollow Tone Coupled with Modern Electronics

The PRS Semi-Hollow guitar boasts a traditional pickup configuration with two PRS 58/15 LT humbuckers. Along with a 3-way switch, dual volume and tone controls, this versatile instrument can produce both classic and modern tones, making it a must-have for any guitarist.

Experiment with the tone control for added growl or shimmer and explore the range of tones offered by this guitar's semi-hollow body with a single f-hole. Other notable features include a flamed maple 10-top, 10-top, mahogany back, rosewood fretboard, Phase III locking tuners, and beautiful bird inlays.The neck is crafted in PRS's pattern vintage shape and has a smooth, buttery feel.

PRS Two-Piece Bridge

Constructed from a combination of zinc and brass, this bridge boasts four contact points and increased weight, elevating the guitar's inherent sound and contributing to a richer and more vibrant instrument.

PRS Phase III Locking Tuners

Enhance your instrument's sound with a combination of modern locking technology and vintage elegance. These lightweight tuners effectively transfer tone for a louder and more resonant experience.

PRS 58/15 LT Pickups

Precision engineered "Low turn" pickups deliver a timeless vintage tone that is both warm and clear.
