I’m a long-time 513 devotee, and still use my two ‘07 Brazilian models as my main performing guitars. I also enjoy playing my Gibsons, and wondered if I could get some old LP mojo with that perfect PRS feel and playability. I was actually looking at SC245s when I started reading about the McCarty 594. At first, I thought it was the regular McCarty model, but further research showed that to be untrue. I listened to everything I could find, consulted with some trusted players, and it sounded like this was the way. The search for a right guitar/right price match was under way! I found a killer Artist Package guitar at a price I could live through (thanks Keenan!), and took the plunge. The guitar arrived, and was a stunning sight in the nice Artist case, but how would it play and sound? Getting right to the point, the great LP I have is back in its case and I haven’t stopped playing the 594 since. It’s a masterpiece. Thank you, PRS!!
