    A lasting legacy with a new finish and neck shape.

    Ted McCarty left an enduring legacy that serves as an inspiration to guitar makers and musicians worldwide. He was also a life-changing mentor to Paul Reed Smith. The McCarty 58 pays homage to both this legendary man and traditional humbucking tone. Gold hardware adds a touch of class as it contrasts with the black finish.

    The McCarty 58 incorporates the following new features:

    V12 Finish
    Finish should enhance the look, sound, and feel of a guitar by accentuating the wood's inherent beauty and feel without hindering its natural resonance. And PRS Guitars' new "V12" finish does just that. Introduced at Experience PRS 2010, "V12" is a very thin, hard, and clear finish that will not crack or react with thinners. After roughly 12 years in development, it is halfway between acrylic and nitro but with a classic feel all its own. "PRS models with this new finish feel like old instruments," said Paul Reed Smith.

    Pattern Neck Shape
    Neck shapes have always been a high priority for PRS and a hallmark of their quality. A guitar should feel comfortable, like "home," as soon as you pick it up, and the neck is paramount to that connection. Perfected after years of prototyping, the new "Pattern" neck is an updated Wide Fat PRS neck-style based on Paul's pre-factory design. These necks were found on the instruments built for Carlos Santana, Peter Frampton, and Howard Leese from the late '70s to the mid '80s.

    Whether in woodworking, machining, or cast and die work, patternmaking is the art of arriving at a perfect standard that can be duplicated or used to create new designs from by "offsetting." All PRS necks came to be as a result of offsetting from this original, Wide Fat design.
