I bought the first one about 5 years ago. It's charcoal burst with #7 pickups. I got it from Willcutt and they were great to deal with. Last I checked they still had a pic on their web site under sold guitars.

mine's a wilcutts guitar to, are they a massive store or something? i bought mine of a guy in the states when the dollar was weak against the pound, which was a great deal for both of us, i got cheaper than i would have ever paid for it new, and he got more than he bought it for i think.

but yeah it was like a wilcutts dealer run or something.

we don't really have stores in the uk big enough for that kind of thing

oh, welcome to the mcarty trem club too grin

The McCarty I had had a printed circuit board in the control cavity and used a 9v battery. The control that should have been tone was a mix knob the blended single coil sounds w Hbuck's.

I hated not having a tone control. I swapped out the pups and all pots. Put in a Dimarzio Air Norton neck and tone zone zone bridge. It was a fine sounding guitar then, but the toggle switch( now wired as a coil tap ) and the huge hunk of mohagany cut out of the back turned me off. I know 'who cares'.... but for some reason it bugged me.

Do they still make regular McCarty's? I can't understand why they put all that modern s into the McCarty. It's suspossed to be the 'vintage' PRS. You know??

Stupid.

that sounds more like a DGT than a mcarty. granted a DGT is a mcarty with switching options. there's a mcarty 2, or at least there was but the lineup changes so fast its hard to say, and i tink there's still a mcarty korina

they do still make it, but very limited in colors. i think smokeburst might be the only one now.
