    I will admit that while I didn't fall in love with the 594 SC I had, I can't keep from wanting a new 594 DC.

    From what I've heard on youtube, they sound amazing.

    That is a beautiful top, in a beautiful finish. As @LSchefman said, perfect for that model! Congrats!

    Yeah...your last pic just kicked my Mc Carty 594 G.A.S. into hyper-drive.

    Paul makes some kick a$$ Kool-Aid and now it's seasoned with TCI pickups.;)

    Guys, hate to the enabler, but this has got to be the fineness guitar I've owned/played, period.
    Really thought the CU24 was the cats meow, but this thing is just over the top.
    The neck, the feel, even the acoustic sound - it's pretty satisfying, even unplugged! Ha!

    I think they must of spent a bit of time working out this model - all the t's are crossed and the i's are dotted...
    Even the switch placement on the horn - I know some don't like it, but it just feels like home to me...

    Little bit on the fence with the bridge pickup - initially thought it could use a little more juice, but
    it's sooo sweet and clear it may just be a shame to push the amp any harder. Maybe just a touch of pedal boost when needed?
    I'll have to experiment a little bit.

    Could this be the one and only? Well, time will tell. I think Mr. Smith is going to have a hard time topping this.
    Haven't played a semi or hollow yet though, or a soapbar ;)

    Slice up a hotdog and drop it in. Or add broccoli for a healthy alternative! Sprinkle with Montreal Chicken seasoning? Priorities, my man! :D

    Love the top esp the area between the tailpiece and strap pin.

    RE: GAS / PRS Sickness...why do you think I exiled myself from this forum for 3 years? ;)

    Bah!! If you're looking to increase resale value you MUST drop in a set of EMGs.

    That's a LOVELY guitar, and doing nothing to quell my 594 gas.

    What does your pile look like these days? I thought I recognized a few of your CE’s for sale awhile back.
