Beautiful Instrument with a Vintage Character
The PRS McCarty 10-Top incorporates the guitar-building knowledge and techniques that Ted McCarty passed on to Paul Reed Smith over the years. Utilizing a thicker body for increased tone and sustain, this guitar serves up amazing sounds that you'll fall in love with. The mahogany neck with a Pattern neck profile and bound rosewood fingerboard offer inspiring playability. And premium 58/15 pickups with coil splitting serve up a rich palette of tones for any style. The PRS McCarty 10-Top electric guitar delivers big tone and massive sustain in a beautifully elegant package.
Solid tonewoods and McCarty design deliver an amazing guitar
To give the PRS McCarty a rich and balanced sound, PRS began by choosing the tried-and-true combination of a mahogany body with a stunning figured maple 10-Top. The mahogany body gives you natural tonal warmth, which is offset perfectly by the brighter tone of maple. And the slightly thicker McCarty body depth adds to this guitar's unique tone and sustain. Together, these tonewoods and design give you an incredibly balanced sound.
58/15 pickups deliver sweetened humbucker sound
Speaking of tone, playing the PRS McCarty's 58/15 pickups is an inspiring experience. That's because Paul Reed Smith himself designed the 58/15 pickups to give you the sweetened tone you'd expect from real vintage humbuckers. PRS went right to the source of legendary pickup production when they bought the same coil wire manufacturing machine that '50s-era guitar makers used to create some of the most iconic pickups in history. The 58/15 pickups give this PRS McCarty the classic humbucker tones you've been looking for. And a push-pull tone control splits the pickup coils for sparkly single-coil tones. Take it from the Sweetwater crew — the PRS McCarty has the sounds and versatility you need for any gig.
Pattern profile neck feels great and plays smoothly
Guitarists know that neck shapes are critical to the playing experience. The McCarty is fitted with PRS's Pattern neck profile. Perfected after years of prototyping, the Pattern neck is an updated PRS Wide Fat neck style based on designs Paul Reed Smith created in the '70s and '80s for Carlos Santana, Peter Frampton, and Howard Leese of Heart. The McCarty's bound rosewood fingerboard offers smooth playability from headstock to body. And with bird inlays, no one will mistake your axe for anything other than a PRS.
