Stunning PRS, not what we normally sell but we couldn’t resist this one...
From 2017 comes this stunning PRS Singlecut McCarty 594 Wood Library Ltd Edition. It came to us as part of a consignment of similar custom shop pieces. It’s completely mint and original with all the original documentation and a certificate of authenticity. As you’d expect from a PRS, the choice of woods is exquisite with the finishing really showcasing the top and neck grains to perfection. Its a brilliant player as you’d expect from Paul Reed Smith with a sound that at once vintage and modern.
For those of you that don’t know, PRS Wood Library guitars are special order instruments. They are custom made using timbers selected form PRS’ Wood Library which is a room in their Stevensville, Maryland premises where they store a rich abundance of wood blanks of all descriptions. All types and grades of wood are present here and they are from all over the world.
The idea behind it is not to offer the top graded woods available per se, but to offer non standard wood choices for the production of custom pieces. Some examples include Copperhead Maple for the carved top, Flame Maple for the neck and Ziricote for the fingerboard.
What PRS have to say about the Singlecut McCarty 594 -
The McCarty family of guitars are born from passion and precision: built passionately to embody vintage appointments and tone while utilizing the precision of PRS’s modern manufacturing techniques. Whether you are looking for rich, authentic humbucking tones or nuanced, sweet single-coil sounds, the McCarty Singlecut 594 can seamlessly master both sonic territories thanks to the 58/15 LT+ pickups and push/pull coil taps on the tone controls. The electronics layout, a few key specifications, and PRS craftsmanship combine in the McCarty Singlecut 594 to create an instrument that plays in tune, is intonated the entire length of the neck, and feels like a guitar that you’ve been playing forever. The McCarty Singlecut 594 has been meticulously spec’d to deliver a familiar feel and warm, vintage tone, featuring a bound, 22-fret, 24.594” scale length Pattern Vintage neck, a slightly thicker back for enhanced tone and sustain, and 58/15 LT+ treble and bass pickups, which have now been through the TCI (tuned capacitance and inductance) process. 58/15 LT+ pickups offer exceptional clarity, focused midrange, and vintage character. The McCarty Singlecut 594 model is anchored by a zinc two-piece stoptail bridge with brass saddles and studs for added resonance and vintage-style tuners.
