Electric guitar with flamed maple top and 58/15 LT pickups, including case

The PRS McCarty Purple Iris electric guitar represents the successful collaboration between Paul Reed Smith and Ted McCarty, who was a legendary innovator in the Fifties and a major influence on the development of the electric guitar Gitarre. Inspired by classic guitars of the Golden Era, the PRS McCarty features a strong mahogany body with a chic maple top and a glued mahogany neck with a powerful neck profile that evokes the authentic feel of classic originals. Two PRS 58/15 LT humbuckers with moderate Output deliver furthermore fine resolved and warm vintage sounds between glassy cleans and creamy overdrive. A PRS wraparound bridge and tunable Vintage-Style tuners complete the McCarty electric guitar by PRS.

The strong "Pattern" neck made of mahogany is glued to the body of the PRS McCarty guitar.

Traditional construction

The construction of the McCarty electric guitar combines classic Golden Era specifications with the typical features of PRS Guitars. Built with the typical 25" scale length (635 mm), the electric guitar features a mahogany body that is more powerful than the regular PRS models for increased sonority, and a two-piece maple top with characterful grain and elegant natural binding. The glued mahogany neck in the pleasantly strong "Pattern" neck profile also carries a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with bird inlays to mark the positions.

PRS McCarty Purple Iris #0323709 Body
Two PRS 58/15 LT Low Turns humbuckers with reduced output deliver warm vintage tones with lively dynamics.

Vintage sounds with 58/15 LT pickups

To achieve the adequate Vintage sound, Paul Reed Smith equips the McCarty electric guitar with two 58/15 LT humbuckers. The "low turns" versions of the extremely popular 58/15 pickups have coils with a reduced number of windings and deliver first-class clean and overdrive sounds thanks to the moderate Output that can be easily shaped via playing technique thanks to the excellent dynamics. Both pickups can also be split to expand the sound repertoire with clear single-coil sounds.

The PRS McCarty features vintage-style tuners for precise and stable tuning.

PRS Hardware

Last but not least, the McCarty Purple Iris electric guitar from PRS is rounded off by perfectly coordinated hardware. The bridge is the PRS Wraparound Tailpiece made of aluminum, whose compensated string support ensures clean intonation. Brass inserts under the strings also support the guitar's lively tonal character. Behind the bone nut, PRS Vintage-Style tuners ensure a robust and accurate tuning.
