I'm curious about specific tonal comparisons between the mahogany/maple vs. korina McCarty... I'm in the market for juat one new guitar, used around $1500 give or take. Way back when I owned a McInturff Taurus Sportster, which was a chambered mahogany beast with a nice coil split: I would play a plain old first position chord on that through a Cart Slant 6V, and just smile. No Carr amp anymore either, but a Supersonic 22 is close. Since TCMs are now few and far between (and PRS quality being a factor therein), I'm looking at PRS, specifically the thick-bodied McCarty models. So, I wonder which model would better range from a ballsy, spanky split-coil strat tone (a-la SRV Lenny, to sustained leads and tight chunky rhythms, a-la Dream Theater? A tall order, but maybe Korina can tackle it? I know multiple guitars is always the best answer, but I'm askin' anyway. Thanks for the insight.
