    Greetings all! As I posted in my introduction thread, I am a new PRS convert and just picked up this beautiful 2009 Ted McCarty DC245 model. The 57/08 pickups sound amazing and this guitar plays like a dream! I know these threads are worthless without pictures, so hopefully this works!

    Even though you can’t post your photos (yet), it’s hard to beat a McCarty DC245 with 57/08s. Well chosen.

    Nice stroke of luck Cainam00 coming across that beautiful machine! I often wish I had closer proximity to guitar shops, but such is life in the boonies.

    Thanks Daryl! It was lucky indeed. I wasn't even really looking to make a purchase, but I just couldn't pass it up.
