Offered here is a limited run version of an instrument which has become one of PRS' most popular "core" models, the McCarty 594 in semi-hollow form. The 594 is named for it's unique string scale, 24.594", making the scale length of this model just under a 10th of an inch longer than the McCarty's typical 24.5". It's still a short scale, 22-fret design, but that tiny bit of added scale length generates a bit more clarity and brightness in the guitar's tone and is just one of the many little details that makes this model special.  It has a Mahogany body and neck with an Artist grade Flame Maple top. With this semi-hollow limited run edition of the 594, you also get a lighter weight instrument (just slightly over 7 pounds) with a slightly more open and airy tone palette.

Flexible electronics are key elements to the 594 design. The PRS 58/15 LT pickups are a lower wound PAF-style humbuckers with a vintage output that makes for a cleaner tone. PRS then added coil splitting, along with separate volume and tone controls for each pickup in order to provide nearly unlimited tone adjustment capabilities. 

The neck shape is called "Pattern Vintage." It's a chunky neck shape that is slightly asymmetrical with a little more mass on the bass side of the neck versus the treble side. This example has depth measurements of .89" at the first fret and .99" at the twelfth with a 10" fingerboard radius and a 1.688" bone nut width.  


PRS gave the 594 their own version of the familiar Tune-O-Matic two-piece bridge and tail piece setup. This design allows for maximum adjustment of string height and intonation. This design, along with the very effective PRS locking tuners, makes for extremely easy string changes.

Play this guitar and you immediately feel comfortable with the design. It feels very LP-like, but with a precision and physical beauty of a high-end PRS guitar. The tone is lovely clean, but has fabulous character and bite when gain is added. You can move between thick humbucker tones and single-coil clarity at will. The semi-hollow construction of this limited edition gives it a voice with a touch of a PRS Hollowbody, but without the potential feedback issues of a fully hollow guitar,  making for an even more flexible instrument.  Please check out the brief sound sample included. 

This particular 594 has been given an Artist grade top with a gorgeous Copperhead Burst finish. It has a total weight of just slightly over 7 pounds and is perfectly balanced.

This instrument is in near mint condition and could pass for new. It has no flaws of any significance and the frets show no observable wear. It comes in it's original PRS Artist case in similarly mint condition, along with the original hang tag and tools.


New examples of this limited run model with the Artist Package go for $5,500 from authorized PRS dealers, but you can get this like new 2019 example from Capital Guitars for substantially less.  Make it yours. You will be very glad you did!
