PRS guitars has teamed up with Joe Walsh to create the new McCarty 594 Singlecut Joe Walsh Limited Edition guitar.
The singlecut features a bound, 24.594” scale length mahogany neck and a Brazilian rosewood fretboard with 22 stainless steel frets and PRS's signature bird inlays.
It's fitted with a pair of PRS 58/15 LT+ pickups, controlled by two volume and two tone controls with push/pull coil taps, and a three-way switch.
Unique visual appointments on the guitar, meanwhile, include Paul Reed Smith’s handwritten signature on the front of the headstock, and Walsh’s signature on the backplate.
“I don’t like new guitars, but out of the box this is absolutely perfect," Walsh said of his new signature model in a statement. "All the stuff on a new guitar that I always have to try to fix, is already done here. Out of the box. Thank you, Paul.”
"Joe's endorsement of the McCarty 594 Singlecut Joe Walsh Limited Edition means the world to me," added Smith. "We work very hard to keep pushing the guitar-making craft forward without losing sight of its rich history.
"The McCarty models have always embodied that balance, and to have a player like Joe Walsh say we’ve nailed it is heartwarming.”
Limited to just 200 pieces worldwide, the PRS McCarty 594 Singlecut Joe Walsh Limited Edition is available now. Its price has yet to be revealed as of press time.
