Private Stock Guitar of the Month November 2016 - Singlecut McCarty 594

Introducing the Singlecut McCarty 594, a vintage-inspired instrument that embraces all the benefits of modern manufacturing. “When we were developing the 594, we examined everything: the scale length, the tuners, the bridge materials, the nut material, the pickups, the neck shape...every piece of this instrument was designed to be exactly what we thought it needed to be to add up to the best instrument we could make,” explains Paul Reed Smith. By paying attention to the details and adding Private Stock’s craftsmanship and stunning designs and materials, the November Guitar of the Month looks like nothing you’ve seen before but feels like a guitar you’ve been playing forever. Like its double-cutaway brother, the Singlecut McCarty 594 can seamlessly master rich, authentic, vintage humbucking tones and nuanced, sweet singlecoil sounds.

Some unique appointments for the November Guitar of the Month include paua, mother of pearl, gold and black lip, pink mussel, and black corian “Mosaic” bird inlays on the fingerboard and “Mosaic” Private Stock Eagle with “November” engraved banner on the headstock veneer, mother of pearl side dots, East Indian rosewood binding along the top, Faded Royal Blue Smoked Burst high gloss nitro finish, and 58/15 LT treble and bass pickups.

Private Stock Guitar of the Month

The original Guitars of the Month were cased between December 1994 and March 1996. They provided the opportunity to experiment with new ideas and led directly to the Private Stock to the creation of the Private Stock program with the first “official” Private Stock instrument casing on April 19, 1996.

“At the time, the original Guitars of the Month program was a way for us to experiment with new designs and features. To this day, that innovation and specialization is still at the heart of the Private Stock program, and we are very excited to try out some new ideas for our 20th Anniversary year.” – Paul Reed Smith
