With its Artist Grade Maple Top, 57/08 humbuckers, locking tuners, Pattern neck, and V12 finish, the 58 serves up gorgeous tone, amazing playability, and stunning visuals.

The McCarty 58 is fitted with PRS's Pattern neck. A hallmark of PRS quality, neck shapes are, of course, critical to your playing experience.

The McCarty 58's bound rosewood fingerboard is butter under your fingertips, and with exquisite mother-of-pearl and Paua Heart Bird inlays, no one will mistake your axe for anything other than a PRS.PRS V12 finish
This McCarty 58 is finished in a stunning PRS V12 finish. If you're seeking pure vintage gestalt with a sophisticated edge, your search ends here. Over a decade in the making, PRS' V12 finish blends the thin, resonance-enhancing characteristics of a nitro finish with the non-cracking reliability you expect from a modern acrylic finish. It has a classic feel all its own - your 58 will feel like an old instrument, but will stay flawless-looking for years to come.PRS Phase III locking tuners
