    I had a bit of cabin fever this weekend, so I decide to venture out and check out some 594s. I started with the SC and then checked out a couple of the classic DCs. All of the guitars were stellar. I ended up taking home a 2020 SC. I have previously owned two DC 594s so I thought it would be cool to try something different.

    This one is a 2020 with the new finish and vintage tuners. One of the more interesting features on this guitar are the LP style brass saddles. Every other 594 I have seen has had the brass block style saddles. I think these saddles add some snap to the guitar.

    Tonally this guitar rocks. While I liked the 58/15 LTs on my previous 594s, I was looking for a bit more output. The 58/15 LT+ adds just enough without going over the top.

    Really digging this one.

    WOW. Very easy on the eyes, and certainly for the ears, I'm sure. Congratulations!

    I love it, especially the figuring in the mahogany on the back near the neck. Congrats!

    The best Les Paul that Gibson (n)ever made! I love mine, and I am quite sure you'll love that beauty. Congratulations!

    I actually said "Wow." out loud when I saw the first pic.

    Interesting on the saddles! I guess they've changed the spec.

    That one is real nice, congrats !
    The staff at Danville Music is great, and one of the very few PRS dealers in the area.

    Gorgeous and congrats! I absolutely LOVE the 594 I just picked up...it has the same saddles you mention. I'm new to the model, so not sure what any previous iteration of the saddles were, but man, this thing blows the doors off any custom shop/MTM Gibson Les Paul I've owned in the past, and I've owned countless versions in the past. Why the hell did I put up with a $5000+ guitar from Gibson that didn't stay in tune? My PRS collection is above and beyond, really...I truly feel they're the best guitars built today

    Beautiful. I'm convinced the 2020 Core PRSes are the nicest sounding PRSes yet.
