The original McCarty design (released in 1994) was highly influenced by Grissom and was designed to infuse vintage specs in a reliable, modern guitar. In 2007, Grissom’s signature DGT model was released, which added a tremolo bridge, tweaked pickups, and a refined neck shape to the McCarty platform, creating a guitar that rivals Grissom’s personal vintage favourites.
These introductions continue the SE’s recent promise to bring more PRS DNA and value into the more affordable line.
“I didn’t just rubber stamp this. This guitar is something I have been very involved in and am really proud of,” David Grissom said. “The SE Series is lightyears ahead of anything I could get my hands on when I started playing – it’s amazing how far the quality has come – and I am proud to be able to offer this guitar to more people.”
The SE DGT features vintage-voiced humbuckers paired with individual volume controls for each pickup and a push/pull master tone control that taps the humbuckers for sweet, single-coil inspired sounds. This layout puts a lot of control and versatility on tap so you can focus on playing and not the guitar.
Additional appointments include a maple top, mahogany back, 22-fret, 25” scale length mahogany neck with rosewood fretboard, and bird or moon inlays (inlays are colour dependent).
SE McCarty 594
The SE McCarty 594 is a versatile, vintage-inspired instrument that delivers both hum- bucking and single-coil tones in a reliable, roadworthy guitar. Thanks to its dual volume and push/pull tone controls, the SE McCarty 594 can seamlessly master humbucking and single coil sonic territories, so players can find all the tones they are looking for.
Its 58/15 LT “S” pickups were carefully designed to deliver warm, vintage-inspired tone with sweetness and clarity. The zinc two-piece bridge and vintage-style tuners anchor the SE McCarty 594 and stay true to its vintage promise, while the classic PRS body shape and bird inlays add a hint of modern style to this classic feature set. Other features include a bound 22-fret Pattern Vintage neck and slightly thicker back for sustain.
SE McCarty 594 Singlecut
With dual volume and push/pull tone controls, 3-way pickup selector on the upper bout, two-piece bridge, and vintage-style tuners, the SE McCarty 594 Singlecut is built with a classic feature set that will make players feel right at home.
Other specifications include a bound 22-fret, 24.594” scale length Pattern Vintage neck and slightly thicker back for sustain.
SE McCarty 594 Singlecut Standard
The SE McCarty 594 Singlecut Standard is anchored by the zinc PRS two-piece bridge and vintage-style tuners. Other specifications include a bound 22-fret, 24.594” scale length Pattern Vintage neck and slightly thicker back for sustain.
Also joining the SE line is a Zach Myers signature model, six and seven-string signatures for Mark Holcomb, and the SE Hollowbody Standard Piezo.
