    Check these out and tell me what you think. I think these sounds insanely good.

    I guess now I'm supposed to think my 594 is obsolete and run out to buy a new one :)

    I was kind of blown away by the way the McCarty sounded with the new pickups and finish in the Tim Pierce video, so much so that I ordered one the same day.

    There’ll be a long wait, which is fine. Gives me something to look forward to.

    Anyone notice that the whole McCarty lineup now has vintage non-locking tuners?

    Yep. I like that!! I still feel my best sounding PRS - well guitar - is my SC245 57/08. It has the vintage non-locking tuners. There is just something airy in the tone that none of my other guitars have....

    Interesting. I don't mind the vintage tuning keys but I don't like the change to a non-locking tuner.

    I have a feeling that those of us who opt for one of these 2020 models are going to be in for some good times.

    I'm not gonna lie, with the new nitro finishes I kinda want to do just that. I love my DGT and had wished my 594 was nitro all along and even before I bought it. I'm hoping these new models deliver.

    SOLD says Schef! I'm digging the texture of the sound, it's very rich and rock and roll.

    I did not, and personally, I'm not a fan. Love me some locking tuners.

    Sorry - being English I can't quite work out what he's saying. I think he says 'Theyr'e tunig them using a type of technonology from an EVQ??' What's EVQ?

    I believe he states "a Neve EQ". (Not "an E V Q".) An equalizer unit manufactured by Neve.

    e.g.

    https://www.soundonsound.com/reviews/neve-8803

    I'm not sure that is how PRS would describe it. But maybe they would.

    Yes that makes sense - thank you! I was just looking on the Seymour Duncan site to see if that had anything having draw a blank on the PRS site.

    I prefer the phase 2's but I can make non-locking tuners work. Haven't tried a guitar with phase 3's but they are the same on top so I'm still relevant...:rolleyes:

    It was tongue in cheek on multiple levels. I'm not one to run out and fix what ain't broke, never one for the latest flavor of the month, and marketing to me is like throwing water on a duck's back :)

    Same here... just easier with no real downside. Even on my LP I'd much rather have the locking Grovers it came with than ugly ass replicas of 50 year old technology that wasn't that great to begin with. I always thought Klusons were ugly AF and there's no offsetting functional/mechanical advantage. If it weren't for nostalgia they'd have been junked a long time ago :)
