    So a few weeks ago I posted about the PRS meet and greet at Righteous Guitars here in Georgia, and how I torqued off Paul with a smartazz question "why do I want a PRS that is modeled after a vintage Les Paul?". He proceeded to threaten to call my wife, and tossed me a 594 to try out. My buddy and I had actually asked that very question when the model was introduced, thinking it a bit retro compared to our killer CU24's.

    ...Fast forward to today, I was in the neighborhood with my wife running some errands, and she agreed to stop at Righteous so I could play a semi-hollow CU24 in Eriza Verde I had my eye on (it was nice, but too much like my existing 30th CU24), when she spotted a quilted blue 594 on the wall and asked me to get it down because it looked so nice. When I plugged it in... HOLY COW!!!!!!! It just sang to me. I went to lunch, thought on it, and with her blessing, went back and bought it.

    Without further ado - A wood library, Korina back and neck, BRW board McCarty 594 with a 58/15lt in the neck and a 57/08 in the bridge in faded blue jean quilt:

    And lastly, a family portrait of my three gorgeous PRS':

    My wife is definitely a keeper! (or is that enabler?)

    That guitar would suit me just fine: great spec.
    The top has a lot going on. It is definitely eye catching.
    Kudos to your wife. She definitely is a keeper. We all need an enabler in our life.

    Nice! Paul had you right where he wanted you. ;) I owe you a thanks for bugging Paul at the clinic. When he switched to the 594 after playing his Paul's and the CU24 semi, my mind went "YES! That's definitely the model for me." I had been a bit torn between the 594 and the Paul's Guitar up to that point.

    That's a great trio there. Covers a ton of ground.
