The PRS McCarty 594 Hollowbody II joins two of Paul Reed Smith’s most popular guitar models: the Hollowbody II and the McCarty 594. It features a fully hollow-build construction with a carved, flamed maple 10-top and back, along with mahogany sides, providing resonance for a warm, woody tone. The 58/15 LT (low turn) pickups have gone through the TCI (tuned capacitance and inductance) process, ensuring clear and musical sounds, while dual volume and push/pull tone controls offer plenty of versatility. Whether you are looking for a rich, authentic humbucking growl or the nuanced sweetness of single coils, the Paul Reed Smith McCarty 594 Hollowbody II can oblige. Smith’s history with Ted McCarty goes back to the late 1980s, when he called on the electric guitar pioneer to consult with him on design. The 2020 updates on this instrument “make a huge difference,” according to Smith. “The guitar sustains longer and the tone has more character.” Additional appointments include a bound, 22-fret, 24.594” scale length Pattern Vintage neck, a rosewood fretboard and PRS trademark bird inlays. The zinc two-piece bridge and vintage-style tuners anchor this guitar; add a nitro-over-celluose (CAB) finish, and the McCarty 594 Hollowbody II stays true to the promise of the McCarty family.
