Notes: The instruments built by the Paul Reed Smith company are among the most influential and coveted electric guitars made anywhere. Introduced in 1994, the PRS McCarty pays tribute to the man who created the humbucking pickup: Gibson lead designer Ted McCarty.

This brilliant example from 2005 is constructed with premium features including the highly figured maple '10 top', all gold hardware, and player-friendly features like the low friction nut, coil tapped pickups, and comfy 10" radius fingerboard. Finally and most dramatically, this guitar is fitted with a neck carved from solid East Indian Rosewood, one of the most sought-after of all tropical tonewoods.

This one-owner guitar has been kept in superb 100% original condition, with a deeply ambered 'Vintage Yellow' finish, and all original tags and accessories. At just 7lb. 10oz. the guitar is nimbly balanced and a pleasure to hold, on the lap or the strap. Smooth low action over the traditionally contoured solid C profile neck, very comfortable in the hand. Simple, elegant and right-to-the-piont, the PRS McCarty is a striking and versatile instrument for the demanding player.

Setup: The frets have been precision leveled, recrowned and polished as needed; trussrod tension and neck relief adjusted; bridge height adjusted; bridge compensation set; string slots at nut and bridge inspected and recut as necessary; bridge foot contour inspected and fit to top as necessary; bridge wheels and tuners lubricated; fingerboard and bridge oiled; body and neck cleaned and hand polished.

This instrument is strung with medium gauge nickel roundwound strings (.012-.054). The guitar will accommodate lighter or heavier gauge strings, according to preference. String action is set at 5/64" to 6/64" at the 12th fret, with moderate relief for acoustic playing with medium strings. The action may be lowered or raised to your requirements with the adjustable bridge.

Case: Original black deluxe plush PRS hardshell case.
