PRS Guitars announces the new Private Stock McCarty 594 Graveyard II Limited
“Graveyard” Curly Maple Tops – Versatile Control Layout w/ Coil Splits – 60 Piece Limited Edition
The PRS Private Stock McCarty 594 “Graveyard II Limited” 60–piece run is made up of visually–stunning guitars with a story to tell. The maple tops of these instruments are from trees found on the outskirts of a Graveyard at the top of a mountain on the East Coast of the USA. The Gravestones there were dated around 1884, and the trees were clearly at least that old as they were forty feet to the first limb. These tops feature medium–wide to wide curl and extraordinary flame that has an iridescence to it.
The ebony and Faded Gray maple fretboard with ebony “Ravens in Flight” inlay, Raven headstock veneer, and Raven’s Heart high–gloss nitro finish were all inspired by the story of these maple tops.
“Our artistry does not live on a square canvas. It’s colors, inlays, and wood combinations; it’s a guitar,” said Paul Miles, Director of Private Stock. “We’re always trying to evolve Private Stock. This guitar very much represents that.”
Just sixty PRS Private Stock McCarty 594 “Graveyard II Limited” instruments will be made. Starts shipping in December 2018.
Released at the PRS Experience 2018, these extraordinary guitars were only offered to PRS Signature Dealers, including John Mann’s Guitar Vault. We were fortunate to handpick the woods for two of these guitars! I must say… Roxanne Mann did an awesome job working with Tina Sears and Paul Miles (PRS Private Stock team).
The photos can not do justice to the true beauty of this guitar. The playability and tone is unsurpassed!
PRS Guitars was recently able to purchase more than 150 curly maple tops from the outskirts of a Graveyard on top of a mountain on the East Coast of the USA. The Gravestones were dated around 1884, and the trees were clearly at least that old as they were forty feet to the first limb. The trees were logged in 2017, and the tops very closely resemble the wood used on guitars coming out of Kalamazoo in 1959. Paul Smith said it appeared to him to be some sort of sub-species of “Michigan” red maple, but with more thought it may just be the age of the tree. Regardless, these are Private Stock quality tops with medium wide to wide curl and extraordinary flame that has an iridescence to it.
