    Core model tuner woes.

    Bit off topic, but same problem with my early DGT. The tuners don’t have current replacements that I could find. Tried PRS Cust. Serv. And John Mann. Phase III old style. The mounting screws are offset. Mounting screws on current Phase III are different, and I ain’t drilling any new holes...

    A True, 100% Classic: The Custom 24

    First PRS I ever bought after lusting after one for many years. Cherry sunburst 10 top at Chuck Levin’s in 2000. Sounded great. Why ‘o why did I sell it?? Slight redemption. I used the funds for a McCarty Soapbar. Still wish I had kept it, though.

    The chopping block

    Two I just moved to help fund purchase of original 94 McCarty. K-Line Tele and Fender Straight Six Strat. Cool guitars, but were not getting play time.

    Returning to my (original McCarty) roots

    Good catch! Coil split wires are there, but never hooked up at the factory. Pull pot never used, 100% original factory wiring with unbroken solder joints! Straight switching.

    Returning to my (original McCarty) roots

    I’ve owned 3 McCartys in the way distant past, and they were always my favorite in the old PRS lineup. Only sold to fund 2 custom builds that actually ended up being quite similar. Double cutaway, wide fat neck shapes, rosewood necks, etc. But when I saw this puppy on the whacky Gear Page I...

    Trying to track down my old DGT

    I had 2 semi-rare McCartys that for the life of me can’t remember the whys of me selling them. Would love to have a shot at a re-buy. At least I now have sense to hang onto my DGT. Good luck; you never know these days!

    Do you love or hate the beach?

    I went to the beach once to ride my swan, and I had a bad experience…

    Move to Southern PA or Southern DE?

    I’m on the eastern shore of MD (near some guitar factory :rolleyes:) and love it in retirement. Beach traffic isn’t a problem if you’re off Ocean Gateway Rte. 50 a bit. That said, my best friend and wife live in Selbyville, DE and love it. They’re die hard beach people, and that’s close by. Both...

    How rare are the McCarty P90 rosewood necks?

    I foolishly sold a McCarty rosewood soap standard, which might be even scarcer. Pretty sure it was a 2001, too. Fellow I sold it to was going to use it mainly for slide. Another “what was I thinking “ moment.
