Hi guys,

So is there any reason why PRS stopped making the P-90 loaded Mcarty model...? Im tempted to get a goldtop LP but i would prefer the PRS...

Also, what are the chances they do another core model with p-90's in the future...?



Rock on!...

Killer rock machine! :cool:
That's very accurate! I've got nothing against the maple cap versions, but this 100% mahogany is the muscle car version. It's an old Nova that doesn't have the Chevelle looks but has a lot under the hood. It's got balls that my other PRSi don't. A lot of that is the P90's but the midrange muscle is also from wood.

Agree. Maple cap adds to tan extended frequency range, however that is not what an p90 is about.

Although my Korina has a somewhat higher frequency response than mahogany and with low output P90 is is rather chimey, go figure.

But OP: sorry to point you towards a europe based ad, since you are abviously down under. (At least last time I checked melbourne is not on the northern hemisphere)
 
I started down the path of a LP Goldtop with P-90’s in early 2022. Then I discovered the limited 2018 run of Soapy 594’s. I jumped on a NOS SC594 soapy (McCarty burst) and it has been the guitar I grab if I just need to play for a few minutes and it gets regular play time when I have more time. Incredibly versatile and very comfortable. It is easily one of my top 3 guitars.

When I asked the store (Chuck Levins) how they had a 4 yr old NOS guitar, they said the demand is actually pretty low. It’s a guitar that fits a need and some really love, but generally not as widely sought after as the “typical” guitars. I love mine though the wider market may not be there for a run, especially with as slammed as PRS is currently.

Grab one of the 2018’s if you can. Fantastic guitars.
 
Now that I understand what the 594 is all about, thanks to hands on experience, I would strongly consider getting a soapbar 594. It’s about the only thing that could potentially tempt me to let go of my Mira 25th soapbar.

The Mira 25th is fantastic. Swapped the P90’s to Wolfetones and it was such an improvement from the ceramic SD’s
