PRS McCarty 58 Artist

Ted McCarty’s presence on the guitar world has been influential since the day he stepped in to the Gibson offices as their president. Like Leo Fender, never a player himself, he designed some of the most iconic instruments ever seen.

As the president of Gibson from 1948 to 1965 he oversaw the design, and production of the Les Paul, the ES-335, the “tune-o-matic” bridge system, and the venerable ES-175 which has never been out of production since its introduction in 1949. This is why many people refer to this era as the “Golden Era” of Gibson design and production.

He was also responsible for turning the Gibson Corporation from a small entity of 150 employees, into a well known company with over 1200 employees in his tenure.

Paul Reed Smith, also no slouch when it comes to innovation, hired McCarty as a consultant, and credits his experience with McCarty as a defining moment in his company. Ted McCarty built a legacy that is an inspiration to guitar makers and musicians alike.

PRS introduced this gorgeous artist grade McCarty model, to players seeking a dressed up guitar with traditional humbucking sounds from the “golden era”. This guitar is the culmination of Ted’s history and teachings.

This PRS McCarty features Mahogany back and sides with a Artist Grade carved Flame Maple top, and two McCarty Humbuckers. 22 frets on a 25” scale with vintage style tuners, and a Custom Green Abalone bird inlays. It also has the PRS Pattern Thin Neck Profile. The "Pattern Thin" neck is an updated version of PRS’s traditional Wide Thin neck.

This instrument is in Excellent + Condition with only some light surface scratches on the back. All of these are very minimal and hard to detect with the eye.

Includes Hardshell Case.
