PRS McCarty 594 Artist Package - Black Gold Wrap with Pattern Vintage Neck
More On The Way Notify me

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. 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.

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. The lower wire turns of the 58/15 LTs deliver even more clarity and nuance, while pulling up on the tone knobs attains true single-coil chime. You also 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:

  • Beautiful Artist Package figured maple top
  • Artist Package Brazilian rosewood fretboard imparts warmth onto each note
  • Longer 24.594" scale length offers a unique feel
  • 58/15 LT (Low Turn) pickups deliver vintage humbucking and single-coil tones

Finally a Paul Reed Paul

I have owned several PRS guitars but have never really loved their tone and even the 22 fret models didn't quite capture the tone I was looking for and so I bought a Les Paul and have been pretty happy with the exception of the typical problems associated with Les Paul's such as the string angle to the tuners and the issues of intonation. Also I have always loved the PRS attention to detail, artistry and overall quality. So PRS has from their beginning sort of marched to the beat of their own drum and I'm not saying there's anything wrong with that, in fact they have nearly single handedly defined a modern sound all of their own. I am an older dude that loves my classic rock and for me that has meant Gibson and Fender classic styles but I was always hoping that this guitar would be made and finally it's here and you can believe all of the highest reviews because it's true and it's worthy of the highest praise. Does it nail the Gibson Les Paul sound? No not exactly, it's still has a sound that is unique but it quite possibly better in that it can be dialed in to achieve any sound and then some. The playability is unbelievable great and I find myself being able to more easily play everything and bends are easier and multi-string vibrato is effortless. Now the Artist model cost a lot more but Wow! The pictures really don't even do it justice. Mine is actually the stock photo you see here and so wha can I say, it's better in person and the abalone inlays are even a prettier deeper blue green than shown in the images. If you love Southern Rock, Classic Rock, Blues, Jazz, Country etc.. then this is a great, great choice. I am a very lucky guy, thanks PRS!!
