    Posted a video today on FB... is a dark reddish, double cut, only 2 knobs, I assume 1 volume/1 tone... just a hardtail McCarty?

    Looks like a McCarty. Could be a Custom 22?

    Pretty much screams standard (non-594) McCarty to me.

    I'm thinking a non 594 McCarty as well.

    so, while perhaps not a 2020, this one... https://www.prsguitars.com/index.php/electrics/model/mccarty_2020

    I've GASsed for a DGT for a long time, but a 2-knob hardtail sure sounds/looks good to a tele player.... in this clip I think he's playing through a new Little Walter he just received (a video from a few days ago)

    Right?!?! I immediately started thinking of a McCarty instead of a DGT, lol. It's actually funny- Grissom has said he thinks of the DGT like a "tele on steroids".

    I've been following this closely as Robben lives here in Nashville and I've met him a few times. He's super nice and those Little Walter amps he's been playing through I've also had some time with.

    Him with PRS is phenomenal. Robben Always sounds like Robben but man do those sound good.

    BTW, someone over on TGP actually verified through PRS that the color is "vintage cherry"
