I've been thinking about picking up another PRS loaded with soapbar pickups. (I owned a McSoapy Standard for awhile a few years ago. I also owned a Private Stock SCT with P90s.) I have a 1959 Les Paul Junior which sounds amazing, but I really love the tone of a P-90 in the neck as well, which obviously doesn't work too well with the Junior.
I'm kind of torn about which model to get though. I REALLY liked that McCarty Standard I had. But now I'm being bombarded with Korina McSoapies, Custom 22s with 3 P-90s, and Ted McCarty models in Doublecut and Singlecut bodies. Truth be told, I think I'm leaning towards a Ted DC245...And I'd really prefer a Ted with a rosewood neck, but I don't think they made those with P-90s. (Did they?)
Does anyone have any advice or recommendations? Of course, I'd love to try them out, but I can't recall ever seeing a PRS in a store with soapies, except for the Mira models.
Oh yeah, I'd sell body parts for one of those ultra-rare 1999 McCarty models with the Brazilian neck and soapbars.
