    My 'new' McCarty arrived today - Pics

    Hi.

    My '97 McCarty arrived today. Spent the evening cleaning and restringing. Love the colour. Heavier than my Custom 22. Bit thicker I think. Thoughtd I'd share some pics and maybe get some feedback (like, what does FWF mean under the bridge pickup?).

    I think it might be 22 Fret Wide Fat, don't quote me just guessing.

    Great looking guitar. I remember when those were first released. How I wanted one. Still do.

    Beautiful! Enjoy it!
    If something is too hard to do, then it's not worth doing. You just stick that guitar in the closet next to your short-wave radio, your karate outfit and your unicycle and we'll go inside and watch TV.

    Nice! That's one heck of a week you've had. Those two are basically all you need, you can do it all and never need another guitar IMHO.

    They say those early "round corner" McCarty pickups the first few years were really made by Lindy Fralin. That's what "they" say, I'm just repeating the rumor. Lindy is known to have made pickups for PRS in the 90s, like the dominoes on the EGs, for example, so it's not so far fetched.
