Player's Perspective

In December of 2017 we headed over to Maryland to hang out with Paul Smith and pick out some woods for our next run of Music Store Live wood library guitars. Mr. Smith, himself, helped out with some of the selections and the spec choices that we ended up with for these. When the master spoke, we listened.

This is a straightforward but effective design that has an upgraded Korina body and neck for some of the sweetest midrange response you'll ever hear! Known as the "super-mahogany" of tonewoods, this guitar's got lots of Korina going on. You'll notice a bit of a smoother and less nasally midrange while also being a bit brighter than mahogany. In addition, it's got enhanced responsiveness that really brings out the dynamics in your playing. Korina is a difficult wood for luthiers to work with but it's absolutely amazing for guitars. That's why you don't see it used quite as often these days, but Korina still drives up prices on old Gibsons, for example, and is a true throwback to the guitars that Ted McCarty, himself, used to build in the late 50's and early 60's. Complementing this is an ebony fretboard that adds some great snap and spank to the top end.

Every chord or note played instantly resonates through the entire instrument creating what is almost a symbiotic relationship between you and the guitar. It's easy to have your guitar be a true extension of you when you can be so in touch and in tune with what the instrument is doing.

You'll have no issues being heard even if you're playing in a band full of distorted guitars, keyboards, and who knows what else. The mid-range sits exactly where you'll want it and you'll have ample brightness on tap. With this, you've got the ability to punch through anything in your path, if needed. With some simple twists of the tone knobs and taking advantage of the dynamic response of this guitar also makes it very easy to mellow out the sound and darken it up a bit. The extra thickness of the body also adds an incredible amount of sustain and resonance to the guitar.

PRS's 58/15LT pickups have become a new standard in their lineup and for good reason. They can get you a vintage sound that's going to be very reminiscent of some of the greatest Les Paul's in history but they'll also have no problems at all handling some more modern applications. You could really use this guitar for blues, classic rock, jazz, metal, and just about anything in between. The versatility is really impressive with such a simple control layout. The particular tonewoods that are unique to this wood library run really help make this McCarty Singlecut 594 a cut above the rest.

Ordering a standard Artist Package version of this guitar would be $5,200 and you'd still only come close to replicating this guitar. Only the Artist Grade flame top and the Gaboon Ebony fretboard are available Artist Package options. The Korina body and neck are only available through Private Stock and the top on this was actually hand-chosen at the PRS factory from all of their available Artist Grade flame maple tops (and believe us when we say that we really did go through all of the tops to select only the best ones). So for less than that price, this wood library PRS is a blend between Artist Package and Private Stock features that make it truly unique.

What an absolutely stunning final product from PRS. This one checks all of the boxes aesthetically, sonically, and in terms of playability.
