The PRS S2 McCarty 594 Is Finally Here!

PRS announced the S2 McCarty 594 back at Winter NAMM 2020. I ordered one the same month … and then shortly after, the global pandemic began.

I ended up cancelling my order later in 2020, as there was no sign of it actually shipping to the UK. Fast forward to March 2021, and the S2 McCarty 594 that I ordered has finally reached these shores!

What is it like? Read on to find out 🙂

First Impressions: Fender’s The Trapper Fuzz Pedal

I’m really not a fuzz kind of person. They pickup and amplify all of the noise on the dirty electricity we have here. I don’t enjoy playing through spitty, broken tones. And about the only time I use the bridge pickup on my Strat is to make sure it’s still there.

PRS SE Line In Limited Stealth Gray

PRS have done a limited run of SE range guitars with quilt tops and a faded satin gray finish. Chappers and The Captain have got their hands on them and boy do they sound good,

These are (almost?) the bottom of PRS’s product line, and that’s reflected in the little things that Chappers point out in the video. But don’t let that put you off.

Listen to the opening jam. That’s one of the best lead tones that Chappers has had on an Andertons video this year. And that’s carried through throughout the entire video.

Watch the video to hear how good they sound, and then head over to YouTube to leave a like and a supportive comment.
