I've been on the hunt for a mid to late 90's McCarty for some time now.
Had one in the mid 90's along with a bolt on with split single coils(can't remember the model).
I've been checking out all the new ones around town and dig 'em but,I really wanted a 90's one.
Bought one yesterday,a '97,from a TGP member and it should be in my hands on Friday.:banana
Thanks Scott.:BEER
I can't wait to play this beauty.:drool
Here are a couple of photos Scott took.
I'm sure I'll have a lot to say about it once I've spent some time with it and of coarse there will be more photos.:D

That is gorgeous! I always thought the rounded corners on the pickup covers looked cool on the 90's Mc's.

Enjoy!

That thing rocks man. I would be super pumped if I were you!

Thanks man.
Yes,I'm stoked for sure.
This baby is exactly what I was looking for.Not sure what they call the finish but,that's what I was wanting.Carmel,Ice Tea or...what ever it's called it's beautiful.Moon inlays and a vintage looking eastern maple flame top.
I can't wait for it to be in my hands.:dude

Wow!!! Beautiful guitar there Sean. Of all the PRSi I have owned thru the years, the McCarty is my favorite by a mile. Actually, now that I think about it, every PRS I have bought with the exception of a couple, maybe three have been McCartys

b

So is it McCartys or McCarties?

Very sweet looking guitar! I just picked-up a 98 in Raspberry I think it's called. Not to hi-jack the thread but I have a question on these guitars. I managed to get all of my strings intonated using the allen head screws on the bridge with the exception of my D string, how the hell do you get that one?

They are tricky to intonate.. I mean tricky... This one was done perfectly when I got it... I was told that because of the stop tail, the g string was always going to be a little out... They are all a little different.. This one that Sean is getting happens to be spot on !!!! I have a McSoapy that had a high nut and was screwing up the intonation... I guess some are different than others...

Cool.
I would not expect any wraptail,with non adjustable individual saddles,to intonate perfectly.Just the nature of it's design.However,a wraptail has a unique tone,sustain,clarity,top end sparkle and ring that no other bridge design has.So,a few cents off on a string or two is a very worth while trade off IMO.
Scott,I know you have 10's on it and that's what I use as well.
What brand is on it now?
Just wondering.

Two more days.:banana

I always, and I mean always use Dean Markley strings... I have found that they last longer than any other string.. since I dont play out and have way too many guitars .. That is important..
