From Our Research Team:
PRS Continues the LegacyTed McCarty stands out among the few great guitar makers in the history of the instrument for the ability he had to embrace new ideas and to recognize genius when he saw it. In the spirit of McCarty's contribution to the golden age of the electric guitar, Paul Reed Smith honors his legacy with the PRS McCarty 58 solidbody electric guitar. The McCarty 58 demonstrates some of PRS's most exciting innovations to date, including the revolutionarily V12 finish, which offers incredible protection to the guitar, brings out the luster of its Artist-grade flame maple top, and gives it a worn-in feel that makes it a pleasure to play.
Another new and exciting feature of the McCarty 58 is its unique Pattern-style neck, which is an updated Wide Fat PRS carve. This neck shape more closely resembles the pre-factory necks Paul Reed Smith used in the custom instruments he built for Carlos Santana, Peter Frampton, and Howard Leese back in the '70s and mid '80s. The 1957/2008 pickups on the PRS McCarty 58 are yet another tribute to the man behind the modern humbucking tone. These 'buckers give the McCarty 58 an absolutely gorgeous classic tonality that you'll appreciate as soon as you plug it in. From its classical beauty to its fantastic modern tone, the PRS McCarty 58 does more than honor a guitar legend, it continues his legacy.

Awesome Awesome Awesome
by Jimmy from San Francisco, CA USAI've been a loyal Gibby player for more than a decade, owned more than a dozen Les Pauls, so I'm very used to the LP sound.

This year, thinking about getting a new guitar since the only one LP ... read more [+]I brought with me while moving to the Sates had been neck-broken for 3 times more. PRS wasn't my first choice, but thinking about getting some different tone and taste, I placed my order and with my superb sales engineer's, Derek, help, it arrived safe and sound !
The first impression of this gorgeous guitar is that beautiful flamed maple top and as soon as I put my hands on the neck, it's soooo comfortable which I was quite doubt if I'm gonna get used to it..
Plugged into Mesa Rectifier Rec Pre with Tech21 Powerengin 60 cab, it sings. BUT, I gotta say this might be personal taste, the bass quite booming or I shall say, thick but bit mellow...
I was getting a bit upset, but I decided to give it another chance; so I plugged into PSA-1 and goes to Powerengin 60 as well, WOW, it sounds great after some tweaking, tone is well balanced and playability is awesome awesome awesome...
Tried with Vox Lil Nighttrain as well, clean tone is sweet, humbucker or coil tapped, crunch is bluesy and in high gain sounds like a wall ..
I gotta say if you are looking for an exactly Gibby or Strat sound, it won't be your thing; but if you open for a tremendous tone that contains bit traditional Gibby but enhanced and a versatile piece, this is it ! You won't regret a dime... close [-]
Absolutely perfect for me
