Your house has a built in Amp Cubby? Paint me green with envy!
Perfect shot! Now you need the one that showed up on PSF with the humbucker in the bridge and the P90 in the neck...
Yes, I saw that - that was an awesome one!
I will get around to a solid body DC 594 eventually. After all, that's where it all started for the 594s in February of 2016!
2020 SC 594 5815 LT+ "Donor Guitar" secured, for the 5815 LT+ Prototype Shootout!
It is not prudent to post pics of a guitar not yet received and inspected to make sure it is a keeper, but suffice it to say it will prompt the usual comments of "Come on, Pete, leave some of the awesome tops for us!"
It will take me a few weeks to swap the pickups out, since the Donor Guitar will reside in my CA Apartment for the near term (need 594s in "all Ports!"). But we are on for the LT+ Prototype Shootout and eventually a Windy City crew get-together to get some more ears involved!
Holy sh## balls...........that is ridiculous.
I can only imagine how good it sounds.
The bridge pickup isn't set as high as most of the 594s I see. Are the two pickups more balanced than previous 594s?
That’s just awesome!
I love it.
I second that emotion!
OK, so now I recognize that my failure to acquire a SC594SH (2018/2019 vintage) (getting a DC 594SH instead) puts me in a position to acquire a 2020 SC594 (solid body) with LT+ pickups to completely make up for it!
Maybe Experience 2020 will have one awaiting me...
A new trend started while you were on hiatus; Incoming NGD, complete with “guess what it is”, and teaser picks of a small portion of the guitar.
I may have helped start that trend
Speaking of, I should go off to start a new thread.......
Oh good Lord, what have you picked up now?
I thought I was bad, buying two core PRSi in December...
It’ll be a few weeks. I’m in the middle of a refi and didn’t want to drop the cash, or add any debt. I also didn’t want it to get away, so I put a little down to hold it. It IS relative to this thread, though. Kind of....
Patience is a virtue...
I have no virtue
I haven't touched the pickup heights yet. It sounds too good to mess with that.
Balance seems pretty good! (I don't pay much attention to the balance, as I am not playing out these days.)
That's the spirit!!
Nice! I look forward to seeing what that is.
For anyone keeping track here, yes, that is 5 594 purchases for me since January 2. I think that is a record, even for me!
I made a New Year's resolution to get back into guitar, and I guess I am ALL IN!
In my defense, (1) I am making up for two years on hiatus and (2) the last two were caused by this new 2020 SC 594 / LT+ thing that sucked me in...
(Chicago crew - if I buy any more in the month of January - feel free to stage an intervention!!)
I think you’ll like it.
No intervention! It’s nice to have you back in the game!
Your killing me smalls.......
Patience is a virtue I just don't have time for.
"Donor Guitar" for 5815 LT+ Pickups for the 2016 Private Stock SC 594 has arrived! (5815s are going into this one...)
It's a beauty. Full 2020 specs, new tuners, Nitro Finish, etc.
I have to say, these 2020 models are amazing. The Nitro finish IMO makes a huge difference. In 2017 I pretty much gave up on the Core and WL DC and SC 594s and went all-in on the Private Stocks - I really preferred the feel and tone of the Private Stocks, there was a huge difference for me. I think the Nitro finish on the Private Stocks versus the V12 on the Core and WL ones were a big part of that. The Core and WL 594s were still fantastic guitars in their own right, but the Private Stocks were at another level altogether for me. With these 2020's, the gap is narrowed SIGNIFICANTLY. (Which my wallet is very happy for!)
I still think Private Stocks are well worth the delta for the premium fit and finish, the Maple Binding and the custom finishes, sick tops and custom inlays, but feel and tone are now very close.
This one has an amazing resonance to it (even unplugged) that is stellar.
Nice job PRS team - these 2020 models are KILLER!!
