NAMM 2020: (opens in new tab) PRS is ramping the releases up this year for its 45th anniversary with the the latest addition of three McCarty 594 models to its S2 line.
These guitars are especially notable for being the very first time McCarty models have been offered outside of PRS's Private Stock and Core lines.
The three 22-fret models all feature 58/15 'S' pickups with dual volume and push/pull tone controls to offer humbucker and single-coil tonal territory.
The S2 McCarty 594, S2 McCarty 594 Singlecut, and S2 McCarty 594 Thinline all feature mahogany necks with bound rosewood fretboards, as well as the PRS zinc two-piece bridge and vintage-style tuners.
The double and single cut models, sport a maple top and Pattern Vintage neck shape. The S2 McCarty 594 Thinline has a thinner, one-piece, all-mahogany body and a Pattern Thin neck shape.
Let's take a look and listen…
