What We Think

Like its namesake, Ted McCarty, this guitar is one of a kind! It features all of the professional appointments that you've come to expect from PRS, plus a stunning blood orange finish that is one of the most beautiful we've ever laid eyes on. Plug it into your favorite amp and you'll find that this baby has the goods to back up its good looks. Sleek, yet substantial; solid, yet streamlined. Two 58/15 pickups, designed by Paul Reed Smith himself, offer incredible detail and the versatility to dial in a multitude of tones between them. From first position all the way up to its 22nd fret, this beauty is a joy to play and to look at!

Manufacturer's Description from PRS

The PRS McCarty model pays homage to a legacy of innovation.  As the President of Gibson during a true golden era of guitar building (1950-1966), Ted McCarty was a pioneer of the electric guitar and musical instrument industry. In the late 1980’s, Paul Reed Smith called on Ted to consult with him on guitar design and production techniques. He not only served as Paul’s 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. 58/15’s 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 rosewood fretboard, and PRS stoptail bridge.
