    Yeah, so I worked slow on this, but not as slow as my Experience pics, which I'm going to do soon...

    McCarty 594 Singlecut. WL, I believe, satin finish. If I recall correctly, it's faded blue jean. Satin finish, and the satin neck feels terrific. There was a DC in almost the same finish with a flamed maple neck. Someone beat me to that, but to be honest, I'm not sure I'd have picked that one over this. I love my DCs, absolutely, but there's something about a SC that feels like home. The vintage grind that this thing produces through the Archon is fabulous. I'd love to play it through a Sonzera - may have to make that happen later this year.

    There's nothing wrong with slow! Great score. Completely agree with your take on the SC vs. DC. Dig the Faded Blue Jean. Looks great as a satin finish. Congrats!

    Very nice.

    I’m enjoying seeing satin make a comeback. It seemed like nobody wanted them for a while. I remember a few years ago a number of the first ones getting gloss jobs.

    I've been on the fence with satin finishes but that looks great, especially the headstock in flat black.

    Nice! With the satin finish, reminds me of my ME. Wait for it to fade a bit more over the next few years.

    That one just gets better and better the more I look at it! Satin finishes are have been underappreciated for a long time.

    In retrospect, it looks flawed. Better send it to me for disposal.

    Man, as I said the other day is it just me or has their satin finish game really improved recently?

    I wish they did more gloss tops, but satin necks because the only thing I don't LOVE about my P245 is the gloss neck.
