    I have been looking at a number of different Hollowbody options from custom shop 335’s to private stock’s. This recently showed up at my favorite local dealer and I was immediately intrigued. It was ordered back in 2019 by the dealer and just arrived. It’s a stunning natural finish Artist package. Something not currently available and pretty rare when it can be had.

    It’s so incredibly resonant and the tone is exactly what I was looking for in a hollow bodied instrument. I’ve noticed some minor hardware differences from prior year 594’s such as reshaping of the bridge, new tuners and softer beveled pickup covers. I’m a sucker for the McCarty model and all of it’s variants and this checks the box in a big way. In person it’s just...perfect. My hat goes off to Paul and the team in Maryland!

    That’s sweet! One of the very few natural finish PRS guitars I’ve seen. Good snag, there! I also recently added my first 594 HB II, and they are super-nice instruments. Congratulations!
