Can truly get some stratty tones out of the pickups. Lots of clarity when played clean, and keeps that clarity when overdriven. Certainly has that McCarty sound + a little something more. I love PRS wraparound bridge, but I believe the bridge on the 2016 McCarty adds that extra punch along with the pickups of course. Overall a great addition to the McCarty line and much more than a one trick pony. Build quality is PRS impeccable, and the top isn't, but looks like a 10. Two thumbs up!
