    NGD - S2 McCarty Singlecut, getting black pickup rings

    This is my introduction to PRS guitars. I got back into playing a few years back, having played mostly a LP Deluxe from the fretless wonder era and a MIJ swamp ash Tele with Texas Special pups. Nice axes but, having drunk the Fractal Cool-Aid for the last year and noting how many of those the...

    S2 594 McCarty Mods thread

    I’m a huge fan of modding lower levels PRS guitars. Make them yours. Let me see your modifications to the PRS S2 594 guitars. I’ll start with my latest and greatest. I was tempted to put in 58/15 LT pickups but held off since that’s what my McCarty core (non 594) comes with stock Core vintage...

    McCarty 594 2017 vs 2020 Changes

    Hello, Forgive me if it’s been asked before, but was hoping some people could weigh in on their opinions of the older McCarty 594s vs the post-2020 ones with the updates / changes. I’m aware the main differences are nitro finish, TCI Pickups, tuners, and maybe the bridge. Do you think a used...

    McCarty 594 Scale Length Confirmation

    Hello all, I was wondering if someone had both a McCarty 594 and proper tools to measure the scale length. I measures 12.25" between the fretboard side of the nut and the top of the 12th fret. I'm just wondering if they're being legit with the measurements/just a marketing scheme, or if there's...

    Cosmetic Inlay Issues?

    Hi everyone; first time poster here. So I recently purchased a gorgeous Wood Library McCarty 594. Overall the guitar looks and plays great. My one issue is with the inlay work, which of course doesn’t affect the playability in any way. I hate to say it, but it looks…sloppy, and for a $5k guitar...

    NGD - 2020 S2 McCarty 594 - Burnt Amber Burst

    Didn't post NGD when I got the guitar, but it definitely deserves one, even if just for pics. This post was delayed because I got the Thinline right after, and I liked it even more. When we were all discussing what we wanted to see in a new SE model, my hope was for a 594. That would have been...

    Have CE24 but looking for a Core: CU24 or 594?

    I got my first taste of PRS from a CE24 Semi-hollow. The quality is superb, I can't wait to get my hands on PRS's flagship Core line. Initially I had my eyes set on CU24 but I went to a guitar store and played a McCarty 594. It was equally mind-blowingly good. I thought I liked Pattern Thin...

    Catalog of Mayer's Dead and Co. Guitars

    Post all you know re JM's guitars on stage with Dead & Company. I hope this is the first time this has been done, I don't mean to copy anyone... Focus is on non-stock Super Eagles and his McCarty models, etc. (but feel free to talk about the Super Eagles too). Stay Grateful (~):]

    PRS McCarty 594 vs PRS McCarty SC 594

    Came across this video comparing the two side by side in a mix - no talking, just playing... Thought it was great and thought it was worth sharing here as its a question that gets asked...

    S2 594 “shootout”

    Not so much a shootout but a demo of all 3 with same exact amp & recording setup. To my ears, the more body wood, the less it cuts - less treble. The more wood, more meaty. The thinline really separates in sound from the other two.

    Mounting Posts for McCarty 594 Bridge

    I have a 2019 PRS McCarty 594 semi-hollow and it sounds and plays great. I was wondering about the method used to attach the bridge post screws to the body. The bridge sits on two posts. These posts are machine screws that accommodate the up and down height adjustment using two thumb screws. Do...

    594 Mounting rings

    So I finally took my pickup covers off, purely playing reasons, I think they sound more raw and open this way. The issue now is the bridge ring is pretty shallow so the pickup is sticking out and looking ..... not good! Any ideas where I can find decent rings that will fit a 594

    S2 singlecut vs Mccarty 594

    Hi guys! Long time lurker posting for the first time lol I am trying to decide weather the S2 or the Mccarty is right for me. Here is the background, I play as a hobby only, and I usually have around 1 to 2 hours every week to jam by myself. I don’t gig or play in band at all. So Here is the...

    Edit: 594 NGD has arrived. Awesome unexpected color

    My PS plans were foiled. Between Dave’s soapbar 594 post, Les’s explanation on maple vs mahogany necks, and this thing being blue, I caved in and will soon become part of the 594 club. It’s listed as slate blue, but I’ve never seen a slate blue this blue before. It has a maple SATIN neck and...

    594- wire from scratch?

    Does anyone have a detailed diagram for a McCarty 594? After an adventurous rewiring experiment (Gretsch wiring with independent volumes and a master volume) I’ve simply reworded or with basic modern LP wiring, but that means I’m missing both the coil taps (which I don’t mind doing without) and...

    Very Happy NGD - 594 Semi Hollow Content

    Very excited to be back in the core family again. I have been out shopping for an HBII or P22 (something with a piezo) but came across this beauty here in Nashville around Thanksgiving. Every week since then I haven't been able to stop going in and playing on it. I finally realized what my...
