A McCarty 594 from the Masters of the Private Stock
Private Stock #6657 is one of the most beautiful McCarty 594 Singlecuts Sweetwater has ever had the pleasure of offering. With a body of African ribbon mahogany capped by a 1-piece deeply quilted maple top, this instrument will leave you breathless. PRS took the design of #6657 to new heights by offering it with a semi-hollow construction, imparting its 58/15 LT humbucking pickups with an even more airy and resonant tone. Paul Reed Smith's Private Stock #6657 McCarty 594 Singlecut Semi-hollow is adorned with the finest material and craftsmanship available.
Rare combination of construction elements
Due in large part to its comfortable 24.594" scale length, the McCarty 594 has quickly become one of PRS's most popular guitars. So Private Stock #6657 used this model as a springboard and added new construction techniques and design elements to make it an instrument all its own. For instance, this guitar boasts a semi-hollow body. Not only does this reduce the weight of the guitar considerably, but it also interacts beautifully with the onboard 58/15 LT humbucking pickups, bringing out even more warmth and top-end air around each note you play. And the '50s-style wiring ensures your guitar sings with a beautifully vintage voice.
Tonewoods to die for
PRS has long been known for their world-famous use of exotic, highly figured, and rare tonewoods. Private Stock #6657 is a proud example of the pieces of wood the company has locked away in their private wood library. The top is exquisitely carved from a single piece of high-grade quilt maple and sits atop a back of African ribbon mahogany that adds a warm sustain to the tone of the instrument. And the mahogany neck is capped with a genuine Brazilian rosewood fretboard.
Jaw-dropping Private Stock appointments
As if the guitar's unbelievable collection of tonewoods were not enough, PRS went the extra mile with #6657 McCarty 594 Singlecut Semi-hollow and decorated it with a variety of beautiful aesthetic features. Along the guitar's ebony fretboard, you'll find binding of figured maple that plays off the top flawlessly. The paua and mother-of-pearl "J" bird and vine inlays recall the company's most famous tradition while taking it to the next level. Even the Brazilian rosewood-buttoned Phase III tuners and the guitar's gold/nickel hardware draw attention to the level of craftsmanship and beauty the Private Stock #6657 embodies.
