    It's a dream guitar but I can't seem to find one anywhere. Was wondering if they were ever made.

    There’s a used McCarty soapbar trem on Guitar Centers website right now for a pretty decent price.

    Anyone have experience with one? I played a non-trem version a few years ago and was bowled over by its clean tones.

    I just missed owning an employee version around 1999, maple neck McSoapie trem.

    I've been thinking about putting a set of Fralin P-92s in my Custom 22 (trem). I would imagine that would be pretty darn close.
