    I've run across a 2007 McCarty Tremolo for sale and wanted to get some comments. Is the McTrem a rare find these days?

    While most McCartys were built with stop-tail bridges, there have been a quite few runs (both factory and Wood Library) with tremolo bridges. I wouldn't say they're rare, per-se....they just haven't really been a consistent model in the product line-up.

    That being said, I always thought they'd be great guitars with the fatter back and the tremolo bridge.

    No idea how rare, but a P22 Trem is basically a McTrem + piezo

    Brian just did a killer WL run of McTrems :)

    Do it. I’ve owned 4-5 McTrems and they’re absolutely fantastic guitars. Today I own a Goldtop with 57/08 pickups in it. It’s NOT for sale. Do it.

    The only thing my McCarty lacks is a trem.

    If it's the one in your avatar... Really nice.
    Almost had one with an IRW neck, but it got away from me. Had to settle for a DGT with IRW

    I owned two and STUPIDLY sold them both. Rare and fantastic!

    They did a 100 guitar run of them in '06 and '07.

    Buy it.
