Behind The Scenes: Boscoe France & The McCarty 594 Soapbars
Posted Jul 14, 2017
Artist / Behind The Gear
Recently, PRS artist Boscoe France joined up with members of the PRS team to film a series of videos highlighting our latest release, the McCarty 594 Soapbars. The setting? A circa 1700’s farm house, presumed to be the oldest building in Stevensville, Maryland, the township where the PRS factory is headquartered. It was here that Boscoe France had his first hands-on experience with the new PRS soapbar models: the McCarty 594 Soapbar and the McCarty Singlecut 594 Soapbar.
We designed the McCarty 594 family of instruments to rival the best vintage instruments, but with the craftsmanship quality and reliability PRS is known for. The new McCarty 594 Soapbars pair classic design with the vintage sound of a great P90. The instruments feature a slightly modified Seymour Duncan Antiquity P90, known for this sweet, articulate growl and gritty sparkle.
During our video shoot, Boscoe France noted, “These sound like P90’s. There’s been a bunch of guitars that have P90’s that don’t sound like P90’s. I think these do a really good job.”
There will be no limit to the number of McCarty 594 Soapbar guitars we make, however the order window will only be open a limited time, July 11 – August 31, 2017. If you're interested in trying one for yourself, contact your authorized PRS dealer or distributor.
