    I love this thing. Happy times! The craftsmanship is off the charts, it feels like it was made for me and it sounds glorious. I've been playing it all night, but now I'm taking a break because my damn arthritis is bugging me. I took it to jam/band practice this evening straight from the store. It was fun. After I got it home, I tweaked the action to my taste and it's even better. Love it (I think I said that already).

    Thanks. Go for it, I say. This thing just inspires the hell out of me and I am now forcing myself to stop and go to sleep at nearly 2 am :D

    Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous guitar. Congratulations.

    Damn you though, I now have a serious case of McCarty 594 GAS.

    Congrats on that one! The 594 series is my favorite PRS of all time. I grabbed one of these towards the end of last year and look forward to trying out the soap bar versions when they hit the stores. Happy playing!

    Hell Yeah!!!! That's NICE!!!!

    The PRS really is something, isn't it? Every time I pick one up I am inspired. While I have been digging my Gretsch, last night I spent 6 hours just sitting and working on songs with my P22. Even without messing with the piezo that guitar is beyond inspiring. EFFORTLESS to play!! It will scream on demand....and then be the sweetest, introspective and delicate instrument you could ever need.

    You're in a jam band?? That's awesome - probably couldn't have grabbed a better guitar!! Enjoy it!! :D

    I love the combination of features on the 594, eg hard tail, tune-o-matic bridge, toggle pickup switch (instead of blade switch), locking tuners, etc. Nice color too. HNGD!

    Thanks. Go for it, man. I'm glad I finally did after putting off the GAS since last December.

    I saw a single-cut Soapbar at the shop where I got this one and it was impressive. It was a heavy SOB, though it might have just been that one.

    Thanks, man. Not a "jam band" per se. We mostly fart around with classic rock and blues jamming. I meant band practice/jam in the sense that it isn't a really structured practice, although we are working out somewhat of a list of tunes to work on. I have somehow ended up as the singer, too, which is sort of crazy. I'm planning to hit my brother up for some vocal lessons.
    Yeah, the feature set on this one has pretty much everything I could want. I think they really hit on a great design here.

    Thanks, man. Those rosewood neck McCartys are pretty sweet. You should check out one of these. They really are amazing.

    I took some more photos tonight outside at the cottage. Since I didn't bring an amp, I just plugged into AmpliTube on my phone through a Bose speaker we have here and it still rocked :rock:

    Soooo nice.

    I've got my eye on a lovely Violet 594...although acquiring it might mean putting my Explorer sword. Decisions, decisions.
