    Pretty much decided my next guitar will be an S2 594 . I am wondering if there will be tonal difference in the single cut and the double cut. Anyone have any experience with these two options on the core 594s ?

    I’ve always believed that there is more low end on an SC. That’s what I hear, but then again I’m old, senile, and grew up playing Singlecuts.

    I would expect a little more midrange from the thin line. Outside of that I have no idea

    I hear the same thing, but then again I'm older, seniler, and grew up playing an acoustic.

    I prefer a brighter guitar and I have owned both DC and SC 594s. The SC was definitely a bit fatter / warmer and what you would consider classically "LP-like" to my ears.

    I would expect the S2s to be similar all other things being equal.

    That being said I am uberstoked for the thinline because it's the closest thing to an SG that I may actually been able to "marry" lol. I can see a cherry one at some point in my future...

    I had both at one time. SC has more push in the lower/mids than the DC. I prefer the SC tone with hotter pickups but DC ergonomics are easier on my achey breaky back.

    Thanks for the replies. For clarity I was just trying to compare the SC, vs the double cut both with the maple cap. Not the thin line all mahgoney model.

    When I saw the hollow body and hollow body ll se come out I thought. " I wonder if they will release a 594 se? But I'll certainly take a 594 S2.

    I know I want the burnt amber finish, and I am leaning more towards a DC myself (I have enough SC's). Did anyone else notice that the SC in all the videos at NAMM was a 2 tone color (amber top / red back)? Odd as that is not a standard color they will produce??? It was a really nice looking guitar though!

    Yup. There's a lot of variation in that color depending how they spray the burst. Sometimes it's so light you can barely even see the burst.
