    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"!!

    A different angle glamour shot of my four, I dig this angle to show off the top, the binding, and the contrast with the Antique Natural backs (and a peek at those IRW necks!):









    The best part is, they sound better than they look! :mrgreen:

    Did you get this one in yet? If so, how does it compare to the purple one?

    Impatiently awaiting, will let you know when it is in, there will definitely be a windy city get-together shortly thereafter!

    The Ultraviolet was frighteningly similar in tone (in a stellar way) to the Honey Amber, so I am hopeful and confident that this Glacier Blue Beauty is just as good tone-wise! (The Ultraviolet is BTW getting a new setup with Ernie Ball Cobalt 11's and push/pull tone splits, will have that back this weekend...)

    Something magical about the combination of the short scale, hand-picked woods from the Wood Library, and this batch of IRW necks - of course I don't need to tell you that!

    I'll try to post pics of "the mule" later...I'm on my iPad right now...I still feel funny posting her considering the company it has to endure in this thread....although the tone...oh the sweet tone hits like a hammer! Hopefully I'll remember later or tomorrow...

    I love the short scale with the IRW neck on the two IRW WL SC Ted's I have had, would love to try it on an DC Ted! An excuse to order another PS Ted, I guess! :mrgreen:

    I never get tired of looking at Teds. Especially Pete's WL collection.

    In that case, here are a couple more.

    Here is the back view of the Ultraviolet:



    There is something awesome about the back view of a Singlecut Ted with the Rosewood neck, especially with the Antique Natural back finish the Wood Library Ted's have. Nice grain on the neck on this one too!

    Here is a harem shot including yankeebulldog's McCarty Smokeburst IRW WL SC and his (formerly my) Solana WL DC:



    That was before the Ultraviolet and Glacier Blue SC's, so the next get together will be an opportunity to have 6 WL Ted's in one shot, with 3 WL IRW SC's (25% of the 12 made!). :mrgreen:

    Only 13 from the Wood Library Run. Reportedly was originally two each of SC's of the Ted Wood Library Run colors (Glacier Blue, Honey Amber, McCarty Smokeburst, Vintage Amber Burst and Solana Burst) plus 11top snuck in two Ultraviolet SC's (a flame and a quilt) and a Lemongrass DC.

    George Johnson has the Lemongrass DC (a beauty!), 11top took the two Ultraviolet's and a Glacier Blue, and was kind enough to recently sell me the quilt Ultraviolet.

    iahawk got the other Glacier Blue, a beautiful quilt, and was kind enough to sell me that one as well, inbound as we speak!

    I had one of the Honey Amber ones, and foolishly sold it, it now resides with clmazza. The other Honey Amber one was with a fellow BAM'er, he had posted it on my Ted thread on BAM, I do not recall his handle off the top of my head.

    yankeebulldog has one of the McCarty Smokeburst ones.

    So that leaves 1 McCarty Smokeburst, both Solana Bursts, and both Vintage Amber Bursts unaccounted for.

    Dibs on them all!! :mrgreen:

    Yes, and a fourth on deposit! :mrgreen:

    Last time around with the Ted's I was all about the DC's. This time around I love the SC's equally, if not a little more.

    By the fall with what I have in the works, I will have 2 IRW necked SC's, 2 Mahogany Necked SC's, 2 DC's, all from the Willcutt's Wood Library run, plus a Private Stock DC. Kind of silly, I know, to have 7 Ted's, but I am CRAZY for these Wood Library Ted's, the best PRSi ever, for me!!
