    Well, I had a lot of Les Pauls.
    Had.
    I sold them all.
    Now I have PRS 594's.

    I'm just sayin'.

    I’ve have an awesome custom shop Gibson Les Paul I bought in 2014 that was my main guitar since the day I bought it. I bought a semi hollow 594 about a month ago and haven’t touched my Les Paul since. I even have to force myself to pick up my custom 24 for some play time, it’s just that good.

    Tonight I told my wife I was going to go play guitar for a few minutes. Picked up the 594 and a few minutes turned into an hour before I knew it. It’s honestly the most addictive guitar I’ve ever played because it just feels and sounds like it’s on another level compared to everything else I’ve owned/played.

    Well, maybe not.
    I’m sure they are nice, like all PRS are, but I have a full house and don’t need to look close enough to find something to lust after.
    I’ve got a great Strat, a good Les Paul (and some excellent PRS SC that I play more) and a bloody fantastic tele. And really some excellent PRS.
    It doesn’t mean I’m judging the 594 as unworthy. I’m just full - I really couldn’t eat another bite.

    That said, I have thought about trying a beautiful one at a not quite local shop.

    I'm that guy. I have Teles, Strats, Mockingbirds, Flying Vs, Les Pauls, etc...

    I also have a 594. Lovely guitar. But if I were to go look for another PRS today, it'd be a McCarty. I own one of them as well. It's mellower. Meatier. Deeper. But not as pretty. Doesn't have the tonal flexibility.

    Forget JM, forget what "people" say. Go play some guitars & get the one that moves you that day.

    I should mention the DC594 did come first before my PS build

    One of my best single coil sounds especially in the neck, though I do prefer the 53/10s split by a hair since those are a touch warmer.

    I never cared for the 4-knob recipe until I took a chance on the 594 and now I have three of them. The knob placement on the pre-594 4-knob PRSi I'd played didn't make sense to me. The 594 layout, however, is divine. The 58/18LT pickups are INSANELY GOOD. They rock, they squawk, they purr, they clean up beautifully, they boost well, they are clear, very balanced, with no ice pick or flatness. They are very alive and dynamic. I also thought I wouldn't care for the upper horn 3-way switch, but it's perfect now. Being able to individually gain-control each pickup--and even split them--has opened up a whole new world of playing for me, it's really been fantastic. Hype is hype. Tone is tone. Consider yourself warned. The 594 recipe is literally the perfect guitar. Your call, but if you pick one up and play it, you'll buy one. Just sayin'.

    I had an SC 594 - the scale length was the bomb but due to other issues I sold it. Not a fixed bridge guy anymore mostly. Upper fret access is also a big thing for me. One too many volume knobs for me.
