    The Official Ted McCarty Limited Edition Love Thread!

    My first post on the PRS Forum, what could be more appropriate? :mrgreen:

    For me the Ted McCarty Limited Edition (much easier to just call them "Ted's") are the best PRSi ever, particularly the Willcutt's Wood Library Limiteds.

    I have owned a whopping 15, here are my current (and favorite!) four:









    ...with the last one inbound from iahawk36.

    Oh yeah, plus a PS DC 245 Ted on order...

    Let this be the place here on the PRS Forum to share the love of all things Ted!

    Long live the "Ted"!!

    Just saw this one. Love that idea. One of my favorite tones of all time was my 1980 LP Deluxe with mini hums. I bet this guitar can get that tone in spades.

    Bump for my newest addition.


    Swapped out the 57/08s for a set of uncovered 59/09s.

    Looks like I have neglected to post my last three!!



    The Jade Glow PS DC Ted, 100% true to the Ted formula, Santana Headstock and all, my favorite yet. Has the Piezo as well.

    The new Beach Crossfade DC 245, a different thing going on tonally with a Maple Neck and an Ebony Board. Still great, though!

    The DC 245 Trem with a Rosewood Neck, this one is AWESOME!! Tonally amazing, love the look and feel of the Rosewood Neck on this one.

    Long live the Ted!!

    They all have maple headstock veneers, but the detail of the curl may not be obvious from a distance.

    I've looked online, but can't find an answer. Which finish came on the Teds?
    Thanks,

    Thanks Pete. That's what I thought. I just picked up a Ted Soapbar. And while I do prefer nitro, I don't want the rubber padding on the stand to react with the finish.
