    I have “enough” trem models for now, and have been looking for some fixed bridge goodness for some more alternative tuning flexibility. With some trades and moving a bit of gear, I was able to secure two nice examples.

    Exhibit A:
    2018 McCarty 594 - Goldtop

    Exhibit B:
    2016 McCarty Artist Package - Trampas Green

    This AP was spec’d with a Gaboon Ebony fretboard and headstock veneer, green abalone bird inlays and headstock signature, and hybrid hardware.

    I should add that these 58/15 LT pickups are the first PRS pickups that have really put a smile on my face. Finally, balanced the way I like tone-wise and from bridge to neck position.

    You know, I just checked. The headstock serial # says it’s a 2015, but the build date listed on the case and hang tag is 2016. And according to the Wayback Machine, the McCarty was re-introduced as part of the 2016 model lineup. So I guess I have a 2016.
