Paul Reed Smith Wood Library McCarty 10-Top Brazilian Rosewood Faded Blue Jean
In April of 2015, we flew to the PRS factory in Maryland on one of our regular trips. We spent the first day picking out guitars to bring back in to the store. On the second morning, Paul let us pick through his Wood Library and pull wood sets for future builds. We had some set aside and decided to use these sets to build a customer-designed run. On the 26th of June, Paul held a clinic in our store where the 65 or so people in the house took a vote on the final specs for our Wood Library run. This McCarty was the choice of the people. Seattle-designed, made especially for our customers. Built with the woods we selected, Brazilian rosewood fretboards, an option for flame or quilt top, old school birds, the new 58/15 pick ups, it's just right. A cross-country American guitar experience, just for you.The PRSMcCartymodel pays homage to a legacy of innovation. As the President of Gibson during a true golden era of guitar building (1950-1966),Ted McCartywas a pioneer of the electric guitar and musical instrument industry. In the late 1980s, Paul Reed Smith called on Ted to consult with him on guitar design and production techniques. He not only served as Pauls mentor but became a great friend of Paul and everyone he met at PRS.In 1994, PRS released the first McCarty, an instrument that incorporated the full spectrum of techniques and knowledge Paul had gained from Ted as well as his own experiences as a guitar builder. It is in honor of Ted McCarty his knowledge, his friendship, and his memory that PRS reintroduces the McCarty model.The PRS McCarty model features a slightly thicker back for enhanced tone and sustain and the new 58/15 treble and bass pickups, which were personally designed by Paul Reed Smith. 58/15s are a vintage style pickup with exceptional clarity and focused midrange. Additional appointments include a push/pull tone control with a 3-way toggle pickup switch for a complete palette of tones, a bound Brazilian rosewood fretboard, and PRS adjustable stoptail bridge.If you find yourself in our fair city, please stop by and try this out for yourself!
