The PRS S2 McCarty 594 offers a more affordable version of the popular model. S2 Series guitars are made in the USA but with less hands-on attention to detail than their core series. You still get unbeatable PRS quality but at a much more palatable price.
With ingredients like Mahogany, Maple, and Rosewood along with a pair of humbuckers and Gibson Style controls and layout, it's obvious what PRS was going for with this model. And they have created an absolutely worthy of any collection guitar that is surprisingly versatile.
The 58/15S Pickups sing with sustain. Rich and warm, with just the right amount of output. They play beautifully with pedals and driven amps. Pull up on the coil tap and you're in single coil mode. All of a sudden it's bright, bouncy, and lively. Tele licks even sound at home. Each pickup has its own volume and tone control. A 3-way toggle placed in Les-Paul-Land makes finding your tone easy.
