Feels like home to me, but I'm a LP guy. Greg Boyce August 07, 2017 - 10:59am Hello, I own a 2016 PRS 594 that I purchased from Motor City Guitar in Waterford Mi. The 594 has a two piece bridge and stop tail and the 245 has a wrap tail. The McCarty 594 and Singlecut McCarty 594 Semi-Hollows make their debut at Experience PRS 2018. Wow - still hard to believe how good this guitar sounds and plays. I absolutely love this guitar but I believe my tech cut the nut a bit too low. The 594 is like having a vintage 58 Les Paul but with the build quality and modern features of a PRS. If you do go and try it, you will know whether or not you need to try and find an S2 because if that 594 doesn't make you want to buy it there and then, the chances are that no 594 … But, I do imagine it plays and sounds absolutely gorgeous, and the price would be about 3500. The Paul Reed Smith McCarty 594 is a vintage-inspired instrument - incredibly familiar and effortlessly playable. I love the asymetrical vintage pattern. The 594 is VERY Les Paul-ish in control layout. Picked up a SC 594 back in December of 2017. 58/15 LT pickups. My Santana and sc pull off metal as well. Finish The SC 594 is said to have a V12 finish and the SC 245 was listed as Urethane. Sometimes that's not what I want in a PRS but for this particular brief, it fits perfectly. I have not played one, I'd have to venture to NYC to try one out, which I will eventually. Thanks PRS ! Whether you are looking for rich, authentic, vintage humbucking tones or nuanced, sweet singlecoil sounds, the McCarty 594 can seamlessly master both sonic territories thanks to the 58/15 LT pickups and push/pull coil taps on the tone controls. A few key specifications that contribute to the McCarty 594’s tone and feel are: A 24.594” scale length, just slightly longer than 24.5” and where the model gets its name. The electronics layout, a few key specifications, and PRS craftsmanship combine in the McCarty 594 to create an instrument that plays in tune, is intonated the entire length of the neck, and feels like a guitar that you’ve been playing forever. These finishes may actually be the same as PRS lists the V12 finish being used since 2010 and the midpoint between nitro and acrylic with a classic feel all its own. Scale length might be a smidge different. They really stay clear and articulate under high gain. I haven't tried the 594 SC but I actually feel the sound of the double cut is so great, that I would rather keep some of the better ergonomics anyway. Looking at both guitars it appears the SC 245 may be a slightly more glossy looking, but quite close. But I always run the gain a touch higher with passive and these prs pickups dish out the brootz Re: Ngd PRS 594. Sat ... Ngd PRS 594… Neck carve is a little different. BUT, PRS just recently came out with the 594 Singlecut, which is their LP guitar, 594 for 24.594 scale length. The McCarty Singlecut 594 was originally developed by the PRS Private Stock team and released as the November 2016 "Guitar Of The Month." It's the first PRS I've played that sounds old, if that makes sense. I'm an emg guy so I'm used to that type of sound. PRS McCarty 594.
