PRS Guitars Private Stock Hollowbody II McCarty 594 – Koa
Killer KoaWildwoodians, we are proud to present you with the latest offering from PRS's Private Stock Series: a Hollowbody II McCarty 594 with a stunning koa top. Private Stock guitars are renowned for their world-class beauty and jaw-dropping tone, and this serial is particularly wonderful example of PRS craftsmanship. And look at that nitro light smoked burst finish! Truly a heartstopper.
First things first: koa has one heck of a sweet sound, especially when used for hollowbodies. Its woody, percussive attack, warm midrange, and sweet highs are immediately apparent in its unplugged resonance and even more noticeable when you plug in. And, there's a bit of muscular mahogany forming the guitar's sides, so there's a little bit of extra oomph in the mids. Also, this potent Private Stock beast has a gloss nitrocellulose finish, so it breathes and resonates like nobody's business!
Koa's voice pairs beautifully with PRS's underwound 58/15LT humbuckers. Based on classic humbuckers from vintage single-cut guitars, these pickups put out warm lows, singing highs, and soaring, sparkling midrange. Together, the pickups and the wood give this guitar a warm, rich voice that maintains exceptional clarity and articulation. You can hear rich purple, orange, red, and amber overtones pop out of the guitar through an overdriven amp. Closing your eyes and striking a big major seven chord makes you feel like you're on a beach at sunset in Oahu!
This gnarly Hollowbody has fantastic feel to match its tone and looks, too. The ebony fingerboard's modern 10" radius will feel like home to players of many styles and interests, and the Pattern Vintage neck profile is just right--not too thick or thin.
We're proud to showcase such an inspiring instrument for our exceptional customers. We know you'll fall in love with the PRS Private Stock Hollowbody II McCarty 594 after one strum!
