A few key specifications that contribute to the PRS 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.
58/15 LT pickups. LT, meaning low turns, which give the guitar a warm, clear tone.
2 volume and 2 tone controls positioned so players can roll off both volume knobs at the same time.
The added versatility of push/pull coil taps for each pickup for more tonal options
A new Pattern Vintage neck carve, which shares the same width measurements as PRS’s Pattern neck but is slightly thicker front to back and features an asymmetrical carve with a little less meat on the treble side and a little more meat on the bass side of the neck.
"The 594 is the best new guitar I've played in years. It has a vintage heart and soul but without the technical limitations that usually come along with an old instrument. What good is an old guitar if you can't get all that feel out of the upper frets, or the intonation is off? To hear that old PAF sound but be able to articulate the notes in a way that only modern manufacturing could allow is so exciting." – John Mayer
