The PRS Private Stock McCarty 594 "Graveyard II Limited" 60–piece run is made up of visually–stunning guitars with a story to tell. The maple tops of these instruments are from trees found on the outskirts of a Graveyard at the top of a mountain on the East Coast of the USA. The Gravestones there were dated around 1884, and the trees were clearly at least that old as they were forty feet to the first limb. These tops feature medium–wide to wide curl and extraordinary flame that has an iridescence to it.
The ebony and Faded Gray maple fretboard with ebony "Ravens in Flight" inlay, Raven headstock veneer, and Raven’s Heart high–gloss nitro finish were all inspired by the story of these maple tops.
"Our artistry does not live on a square canvas. It’s colors, inlays, and wood combinations; it’s a guitar," said Paul Miles, Director of Private Stock. "We’re always trying to evolve Private Stock. This guitar very much represents that."
Just sixty PRS Private Stock McCarty 594 "Graveyard II Limited" instruments will be made. Starts shipping in December 2018.
