    Standard McCarty 10 top. Which Color?

    My 2 choices are down to Tobacco Sunburst where you can still see the grain nicely in the dark section OR
    Standard McCarty Sunburst which is just classic.

    Thanks!

    For me, I like certain finishes, but, I really need to SEE a PRS to know. Sometimes, a top just lets me know that THAT one is the one. Even if it isn't what I normally would have chosen based on theory. But that is just me.

    Both beautiful, both classic. Kind of depends upon which back color you're feeling like--do you want the medium/bright red back (reg. McCarty Sunburst) or a darker maroon-red back (McCarty Tobacco Sunburst)? If given the ability to see--and especially touch/play--both guitars, between these two I'd go for the one that "speaks" to you more. Because you really can't go wrong...

    Well the Tobacco has close to an Artist top so is the better choice, but my friend called and will sell me back my old McCarty so the search is over...

    Thanks!

    I would be more likely to choose the top I liked rather than the colour it happened to be finished. That said, I favour McCarty Sunburst.
