    Good lord, I go away for a week and this awesomeness shows up! Congrats and a KILLER build! That color on that top and the subtle smoke burst look fabulous. I debated about those inlays but my wife insisted on the birds so birds it is!

    Ok, so I know it’s a 245 cousin, but I felt this deserved air play, because it’s just so good!

    This is what it is all about! 2 great studio musicians. I learned a few new chord voicings watching this & had no idea of the history of the song. Thanks for posting.

    I have to admit it’s one of my favourites. I love the chords and their progression. Ok it’s an extended 12 bar blues, but it’s such a good song.

    I loved the bit about “depping” for JT as well!

    Visiting from my Forum Semi-Retirement to state this is still the best guitar model EVER!

    I put another one in the oven with the Private Stock team in February, Semi-Hollow with an F-Hole...

    Then moved o’er waters by the might of the wind
    That bark like a bird with breast of foam,
    Til in season due, on the second day,
    The curved prow such course had run,
    That sailors could now see the land,
    Sea-cliffs shining, steep high hills,
    Headlands broad.
    Their haven was found, their journey ended.

    Well, I got 33 pages of '594 Singlecut Love' to read, but I thought I would start by adding mine.

    Just picked it up last Friday, Aug 2nd, one day shy of its manufacturing birthday on Aug 3, 2018. It is a light 8.22 lbs and I love it. No other guitar I have played rings and sustains like this one. It is my 4th PRS, and it is a new level of awesome. Now the sell-off of unused equipment begins.

    Thanks! I got a stoopid deal on it as it was somehow in their shop for a while and they wanted to move it. I wonder if it was forgotten in a box or something. It is in perfect shape.
    Currently on page 20 of 33.

    Well. Done 33 pages. The MA Pete saga was quite a plot twist. I was actually worried and sad for him! Hope everything is ok. Glad the first prototype seems to have stayed.

    Thanks! Just got home and played it right away. Watching an F1 race (no spoilers please) and jamming out are my thing.

    Happy New Year, everyone! I posted the above September 4, 2017, just over two years ago. (Wow, over two years? Time flies!!)

    I am declaring here that I am ready to come back from my hiatus, as we enter 2020 today.

    During that time I wasn't playing a lot, wasn't buying and selling too much, and wasn't on guitar forums very much. I think it was a much-needed break, after the insanity I had with PRS obsession from 2008 to 2017... ;)

    As I return here, I will declare that this guitar here below changed everything for me. This guitar was so disruptively awesome and head and shoulders above the rest, that I wasn't really able to process it and understand it at the time. But after two years of processing and reflecting, I understand and accept it now. (First World problems, I know...)

    [​IMG]

    I will attempt to share my thoughts on all that with you guys here soon...

    I spent a bunch of time over the holidays reliving the Official McCarty 594 and SC 594 Love threads, the PSF thread, and in general catching up here. I was so pleased to see the 594 love remaining so strong! Congrats to all of you with your great new 594 acquisitions, some killer guitars in these threads.

    This guitar is my sole PRS at this point, but that probably won't last long. As I started to play a little bit more recently, I was blown away by this beast. I knew it before, but after taking a break and coming back, it really hits home with me that this is hands-down by far the best sounding and feeling guitar I have ever owned, or played. Now that I understand things in my head a lot better, I think I am ready to perhaps add some more things 594 to the collection to build around this one. :)

    (JD at Guitar Maverick - I am eternally grateful for you making sure this guitar got into my hands when you scooped it up back in 2016! You rock.)

    Welcome back Pete! Your journey certainly influenced my own, even if I went the trem route (and 0.094” less scale - HAD to keep tha PV neck though!) :)
