Tonally the guitar is a chameleon, with the extended dynamic range of the PRS 58/15 LT pickups and fantastic clarity when coil tapped, it can cover any kind of music with ease. The 58/15s are pretty special pickups in that they have more clarity in the high mids, are a little rolled off in the low mids and have a strong and rooted bass response. The acoustic tone of this semi hollow wonder comes through when plugged in.

CRAIG'S POV

PRS Private Stock guitars are truly bespoke instruments. The master luthiers who build them have the freedom and time to pay the greatest possible attention to every detail of the guitar, every nuance, and they have access to all the considerable resources of PRS. The Private Stock instruments simply get closer to perfection, that elusive ideal that every guitar maker desires. That's why Paul Reed Smith personally signs every one.

The Private Stock unit has unfettered access to PRS’s legendary wood stores (over many years the company has built an enormous collection of the best wood they could find in the world). Meaning they have access to the very highest quality and most coveted woods, which allows them to make some of the most remarkable instruments I have ever played.

And this brand new PS McCarty 594 semi-hollow is certainly remarkable! It's truly one of the finest PRS Private Stock guitars I have ever played. Not only does it bring home all the DNA of the extraordinary Private Stock 594 but it is further infused with the versatility that a trem and semi-hollow construction add to the recipe.

In keeping with the finest vintage 'bursts, I personally selected a curly Eastern maple top for our brand new stunning 594 Semi. The rare African ribbon mahogany back is just as beautiful and adds to the sweet acoustic resonance of this fine guitar.

This exceptional guitar is not ostentatious in any way, but rather has a refined aesthetic, and also succeeds in being visually exciting, the kind of guitar that gets your heart racing just looking at it. The now classic bird inlays are sophisticated yet simple, and I love the curly maple binding. Not to mention the vintage pattern carved figured mahogany neck, which looks and feels just wonderful.

Tonally the guitar is a chameleon, with the extended dynamic range of the PRS 58/15 LT pickups and fantastic clarity when coil tapped, it can cover any kind of music with ease. The 58/15s are pretty special pickups in that they have more clarity in the high mids, are a little rolled off in the low mids and have a strong and rooted bass response. The acoustic tone of this semi hollow wonder comes through when plugged in. The superior PRS TREM setup is a perfect addition in every way.

The scale is slightly shorter than the normal PRS scale of 25". At 24.594" there is a little less tension which makes the strings feel very responsive and smooth, and the tone is warm and full, which is one of the myriad ways the PRS team achieves a real vintage tone and vibe with this model. And last but not least, Paul has really nailed the neck profile with his pattern vintage carve. Just wonderful and might be at the top of my list for all time best neck shapes.

This is truly a superb guitar, one that reminds me how fine an instrument can be when built by someone who sweats and cares about every detail of the build process. Bottom line here: I highly recommend this killer Private Stock McCarty 594 Semi-hollow with Trem, it's a real winner!

If you'd like to find out more about this item, just call or e-mail me. It would be my pleasure to talk to you about it.

ABOUT PRS PRIVATE STOCK
Everyone has heard of PRS Guitars; they are one of America's great entrepreneurial success stories. But not everyone has heard of the Paul Reed Smith Private Stock instruments. These are special guitars, in every sense. That's what inspired us here at CR Guitars to seek them out; they conform perfectly to our vision of what "hand selected" really means. The goal behind the PRS Private Stock of instruments is not only to create the most beautiful and best playing guitars money can buy, but the best sounding. PRS works very closely with each order - through hourly discussions, experimentation, meticulous checks of every detail at each step in the process and making final tweaks when the guitar is complete - to make sure they are building the best guitars possible. If you get an extraordinary instrument from Private Stock that is equally as good as a family heirloom and a musician’s tool to make a living on, then the Private Stock goal has come to fruition.

“Whether built to your specification or ours, every Private Stock instrument is carefully guided through the process by highly talented, seasoned guitar makers, and each completed instrument is checked and signed by Paul Miles and me. From all of us on the Private Stock team, thank you for looking at and considering a Private Stock instrument. If you decide on a Private Stock guitar, we will give everything we have to make it the best instrument you’ve ever experienced.” - Paul Reed Smith
