The Incomparable McCarty 594 Hollowbody II
The PRS McCarty 594 Hollowbody II electric guitar is built to perform as great as it looks. Its distinctively figured top and back are carved from figured maple; the sides are mahogany — a tonewood cocktail that delivers extraordinary clarity and warm resonance. The Hollowbody II also features a very comfortable Pattern Vintage mahogany neck and a rosewood fingerboard adorned with beautiful Bird inlays. Oversize f-holes and two toneful 58/15 LT humbucking pickups round out the feature set. For sheer elegance, playability, versatility, and amazing tone, the PRS McCarty 594 Hollowbody II is a sure-fire bet.
Handcrafted from premium tonewoods
Handcrafted by PRS’s elite luthiers, the McCarty 594 Hollowbody II uses only premium tonewoods: gorgeously figured maple for the top and back, mahogany for the sides. This particular combination yields a clear, yet resonant tone that suits any musical style. The mahogany neck is topped with a smooth rosewood fingerboard adorned with exclusive PRS artist bird inlays.
Pattern Vintage profile neck for enhanced playability
Some of the least visible but most powerful features of the 594 Hollowbody II include a neck feel that maximizes performance and comfort with an asymmetrical Pattern Vintage profile — a favorite among guitarists at Sweetwater. Though much like their Pattern profile, PRS’s Pattern Vintage carve is slightly thicker to fill your hand in just the right way. And the strings will always feel silky smooth when playing and bending due to the guitar’s 24.594″ signature McCarty scale length — the origin of the “594” in the model name.
Drink in this guitar’s rich, organic vintage voice
When you plug this guitar into your favorite amp, you will be enveloped in a rich, organic vintage tone. This is the warm and clear sonic elixir that propelled the original 58/15 pickups to the top of many guitarists’ favorite PAF-style humbucker lists. 58/15 LT pickups are based on that successful design, but they’re wound with fewer wire turns for even more clarity and nuance. This guitar’s electronics setup features the traditional 4-pot configuration, which gives you independent control of each pickup’s volume and tone. Pulling up on each tone knob engages single-coil operation for that pickup, which means this axe can serve up any electric guitar tone you could ever need. From jazz and fusion to blues, rock, and country; from chimey rhythm parts to blistering leads — and everything in between — the PRS McCarty 594 Hollowbody II delivers.
