Presenting the Paul Reed Smith Private Stock Guitar of the Month for November 2016: A Singlecut McCarty 594 in Faded Royal Blue Smoked Burst with special Mosaic Bird Inlays.
This Guitar of the Month is part of a very limited run of only 20 pieces, of which only 10 are being offered for sale in the US. The Guitar Sanctuary is proud to offer 2 of those 5 for sale here.
“When we were developing the 594, we examined everything: the scale length, the tuners, the bridge materials, the nut material, the pickups, the neck shape...every piece of this instrument was designed to be exactly what we thought it needed to be to add up to the best instrument we could make,” explains Paul Reed Smith.
By paying attention to the details and adding Private Stock’s craftsmanship and stunning designs and materials, the November Guitar of the Month looks like nothing you’ve seen before but feels like a guitar you’ve been playing forever. Like its double-cutaway brother, the Singlecut McCarty 594 can seamlessly master rich, authentic, vintage humbucking tones and nuanced, sweet singlecoil sounds.
Some unique appointments for the November Guitar of the Month include Paua, mother of pearl, gold and black lip, pink mussel, and black corian “Mosaic” bird inlays on the fingerboard and “Mosaic” Private Stock Eagle with “November” engraved banner on the headstock veneer, mother of pearl side dots, East Indian rosewood binding along the top, Faded Royal Blue Smoked Burst high gloss nitro finish, and 58/15 LT treble and bass pickups.
“Private Stock is very special to me. It is an amazingly passionate team working with our most treasured materials and new designs. These craftsmen are building heirloom quality pieces of art that play and sound as good as any guitar I have ever played. I am very proud to be celebrating 20 years of Private Stock with the Guitar of the Month program and the Paul’s Guitar model” – Paul Reed Smith
The original Guitars of the Month were cased between December 1994 and March 1996. They provided the opportunity to experiment with new ideas and led directly to the creation of the Private Stock program, with the first “official” Private Stock instrument casing on April 19, 1996.
