Another gorgeous PRS 594 model, which we handpicked from a recent delivery of stunning "Wood Library" editions.
The Wood Library offers wood grades the levels above a 10 Top and sits just underneath a Private Stock but they're less than half the price of a Private Stock.
This guitar also unusually has the "Black Gold" Finish but with an exposed maple edge, rather than it's usual "wrap" finish, which is where the top finish blends into the stain on the back.
The guitar has a stunning figured maple neck with a matching black gold burst stain applied.
Originally released as a 26 piece "Private Stock Guitar of the Month" run in February 2016, the PRS MCarty 594 model was really brought to our attention by John Mayer, during a live Periscope video where he was talking about several things, including some of his favourite guitars and as soon as that video came out, the demand for the guitar was amazing!
Of course not everyone could obtain one of these £10,000 instruments, regardless of price, all 26 sold out immediately, so we're super pleased to see that PRS have released the guitar into the core line
We have plenty of these on order and they're undoubtedly going to be super popular.
Here's what John Mayer had to say about his PS 594
"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. Ths 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."
It's named the McCarty 594 to honour Paul's mentor Ted McCarty, it's attempts to pay its respects to vintage 'Golden era' instruments but with a modern build techniques that you've come to expect from their top shelf work.
