The 2018 Experience Paul Reed Smith McCarty 594 is beautifully crafted in a Charcoal Purple Wrap Around Burst finish with an incredible figured ten top maple and mahogany sides. Utilize 58/15 LT picks and push/pull coil tips on the tone controls, this PRS McCarty 594 instantly feels at home in your hands – you’ll think you’ve been playing this instrument for years. With a mastery of both highs and lows, this guitar is instantly comfortable, naturally playable and wonderfully balanced.
According to John Mayer, “The 594 is the best new guitar I've played in years. It has a vintage heart and soul but without the technical limitations that usually come along with an old instrument. What good is an old guitar if you can't get all that feel out of the upper frets, or the intonation is off? To hear that old PAF sound but be able to articulate the notes in a way that only modern manufacturing could allow is so exciting. This one's going all over my new record, because it sits so nicely between all of the sonic identities we all know and love. And it plays like a dream.”
This particular instrument was hand picked by Eddie's Guitars in Stevensville, Maryland at the 2018 PRS Experience Event.
