Vintage Soul, Modern Playability, Artist-grade Beauty

The Paul Reed Smith McCarty 594 solidbody electric guitar provides a new take on their important McCarty line, gracefully blending elements of a fine vintage instrument with modern building processes and appointments. The McCarty 594's 58/15 LT (Low Turn) pickups offer up both bell-like humbucking and single-coil tones. PRS paid extra attention to the neck, designing an asymmetrical Pattern Vintage neck carve with a 24.594" scale length. And the updated bridge and Phase III locking tuners further ensure you'll be enjoying the best the McCarty 594 has to offer. This McCarty 594 boasts PRS's Artist Package, adding even more exotic tonewoods and breathtaking aesthetic appointments.

Paul Reed Smith McCarty 594 Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • A historic pedigree
  • Clear and smooth vintage voice
  • Updated dimensions for effortless playability
A historic pedigree

Ted McCarty had his hand in some of the most legendary designs in electric guitar history, including the original humbucking pickup. McCarty began mentoring Paul Smith, and the original Paul Reed Smith McCarty model debuted in the 1990s. Since that time, the popular model has been re-released with updated specs and continues to be a popular line for the company. This McCarty 594 represents the latest incarnation of that model, complete with updated pickups, a different neck feel, and an electronics arrangement similar to the vintage guitars McCarty helped pioneer.

Clear and smooth vintage voice

When you plug the PRS McCarty 594 solidbody electric guitar into your favorite amplifier, you will be enveloped in a rich and decidedly vintage tone. The sound is similar to the warm, clear tones that have propelled the original 58/15 pickups to the top of many of Sweetwater guitarists' favorite PAF-style pickup list. But the lower wire turns of the 58/15 LTs deliver even more clarity and nuance. Pulling up on the tone knobs attains true single-coil chime, and you have full and independent control of each pickup by way of the 4-knob control layout.

Updated dimensions for effortless playability

Some of the least visible but most powerful features of the PRS McCarty 594 include a neck feel that maximizes your performance and comfort with an asymmetrical Pattern Vintage profile. Though much like their Pattern profile, the Pattern Vintage carve is slightly thicker to fill your hand in just the right way. And the strings will always feel silky smooth when playing and bending due to the guitar's 24.594" scale length, which is also where this model of McCarty gets its name. Finally, a "tweaked" version of the Phase III locking tuners transfers even more string energy to the guitar's neck.

Paul Reed Smith McCarty 594 Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • New design from Paul Reed Smith
  • Beautiful Artist Package figured maple top
  • Artist Package Gaboon ebony fretboard enhances each note's clarity
  • Longer 24.594" scale length offers a unique feel
  • 58/15 LT (Low Turn) pickups deliver vintage humbucking and single-coil tones
  • 4-knob layout allows individual control of each pickup's volume and tone
  • Comfortable asymmetric Pattern Vintage neck carve
  • Updated Phase III locking tuners transfer more energy to the headstock
The McCarty 594 blends the best of the old and new with top-shelf aesthetics.

McCarty 594

I own 3 PRS guitars, a SE custom, a 10 top Paul's guitar and now the 594 artist package.i own over 30 guitars of all brands and sold a few to purchase the 594. There is something very different about this guitar, it's hard to explain but it's just comfortable and easy to play. Cosmetically it's a PRS and perfect in detail as all PRS are. The voice and harmonics are spot on. There is a close battle between the Pauls guitar and the 594 as both are special in their own way. I arrived late to the PRS club being a longtime Fender Strat and Gibson Les Paul guy but I am happy to have them as part of my collection. I play everyday and the PRS are the first I reach for. I can honestly say if I could own only one guitar it would be a PRS. Sweetwater and in particular Justin Rix (my sales engineer)has made my purchases painless , my guitars arrive in perfect condition and quickly. I constantly browse the guitar gallery for my next addition. I am adding a PRS CE next and I am only waiting for the right one to show up. I wish they made the CE in glacier blue smokeburst because I would buy it instantly! Thanks PRS & Sweetwater for all the support, it's appreciated
