I actually came here to ask if i could have it. Always one step ahead!
Once upon a time, I had one. A couple years back, I snagged a Red Fire Burst SC594 (10-to, no less). Loved the guitar, but it stood in the way if acquiring an acoustic i really "had to have," so i sold it. Also had a Gold Wrap 594 for a bit.
If i recall, the neck carve was pretty awesome.
They're definitely on my "consider" list.
Wait, didn’t all of these come with etched pups and not that bridge you have? Where is the correct truss rod cover?
No - the 1957/2008 run preceded the etched covers. They were just brushed nickel.
Can’t say anything about the TRC, though. I can say this was before I scratched the headstock during a string change.
Stripped 58s are fantastic guitars for the $$$ spent.
I bought it second hand. The original owner made the change to the bridge. He also kept the TR cover and signed back plate. I thought it was just a regular SC245 until I contacted PRS CS, they told me it was a 1957/2008 LTD. They also told me I was SOL on the TR cover and signed back plate. That's okay, because I gig the guitar and the back plate would have been gotten all rubbed up, and I HATE PRS TR cover with anything on them.
I recently scratched the 594 itch, and got the perfect classic rock guitar... the kind that covers everything I play with equal ease. I never liked the huge 50s neck on Gibsons, but the pattern vintage neck is a perfect (and I mean perfect) middle ground between small necks and beefy ones. It fills the hand just right.
I liked it so much that I bought a second one within a month, and gladly sold a Carvin CT6 and Gibson Les Paul Standard Premium Plus to fund the additions. Both of those were great guitars in their own right, but the 594s (one DC Artist Package, one SC in classic black) easily replace them by doing what I had them for, better. I always have 2 guitars on stage for the possibility of broken strings, etc, and these are a perfect match!
Check the 594 out, but be warned. They are habit forming!
You just made two of my favorite guitars cry.
They’re very sensitive.
Any of those you listed should get you there. I really like the 57/08 pickups but others seem love the newest LT’s in the 594. The stripped is a fantastic value by comparison or the SC-58 or 245 for a fancier top.
