Watchtower Guitars and our partnership with Paul Reed Smith Guitars is growing to new levels in 2021. We have one of the best selections of Core, Bolt On, S2 and SE models in the tri-state area. All of these guitars are available to be tested at our new PRS showroom in Morristown NJ. Please contact us to make an appointment. Working with us at Watchtower Guitars is a full tone experience not just a transaction.
This natural McCarty 594 with its Artist grade top & ebony fingerboard is one of the rarest Artist PRS's we've had in the shop! Paul knows you can only use the best wood when you go natural. There's no hiding any flaws and this guitar has none. Tone, playability and stunning looks. PRS has put a hold on all Artist packages while they deal with their Artist grade wood shortage. This is a very rare guitar to have the Artist package.

PRS has updated this model with TCI-tuned pickups and nitro over celluose (CAB) finish.
The McCarty 594 is a versatile, vintage-inspired instrument that is effortlessly playable. Featuring a bound 22-fret Pattern Vintage neck and slightly thicker back for more enhanced tone and sustain, the McCarty 594 plays in tune, is intonated the entire length of the neck, and feels like a guitar you’ve been playing forever. Whether you are looking for rich, authentic humbucking tones or nuanced, sweet single-coil sounds, the McCarty 594 can seamlessly master both sonic territories thanks to its 58/15 LT pickups, which have now been through the TCI (tuned capacitance and inductance) process, and dual volume and push/pull tone controls. A zinc two-piece bridge anchors this guitar and stay true to the promise of the McCarty family.
“One of my sayings is that everything that touches the string is God – well, that’s really the bridge, the nut, and the tuners. The updates to the McCarty family make a huge difference in their tone. The guitar sustains longer and the tone has more character,” said Paul Reed Smith.
In the late 1980’s, Paul Reed Smith called on Ted McCarty to consult with him on guitar design and production techniques. He not only served as a mentor but became a great friend of Paul and everyone he met at PRS. In 1994, PRS released the first McCarty, an instrument that incorporated the full spectrum of techniques and knowledge Paul had gained from Ted as well as his own experiences as a guitar builder.
