    Couldn't agree more - and the Solid Body version is superb...

    Thanks for all the input and feedback, you all!
    Maybe one more question: how does the McCarty Hollowbody II balance on a strap? Is it neck heavy at all? I can’t stand it when guitar’s get dive-happy....
    Cheers!

    No neck dive here and mine weighs in at 5.6 lbs!

    That was one of the things I hated about hollowbodies, and the 594 McCarty HB has none of it. Sits just right, body size isn't like trying to wrestle a life raft, and (as @Moondog Wily reported above) the lack of gravity pull is delightful.

    I had a similar concern going in and it balances just fine on a strap.
