"Great Guitar"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I’ve played many guitars in the last 60 years and found this one to be great. I’ve loved strats and still do but this S2 is sweet and solid. I find the pickups to be ok and the action set up more for rhythm playing so added some 9’s and oh baby.

"Puts my 2019 Les Paul Standard 60's to SHAME"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
The title says it all and I absolutely hate to say that because I've been a Gibson fanboy my entire life (and I'm 50 years old, been playing for 40 of those years)...but it's true. The PRS S2 McCarty plays better, sounds better, feels better, looks better- and it's $750 cheaper. The pickups are the import versions of the 58/15 set and they're so harmonic and rich, I can't believe how much better they sound than the Burstbuckers. Don't get me wrong, a Les Paul is a fabulous instrument and has a history with musicians all over the world; but when something is just as good or better then that's how the mop flops and I'll be honest about it. Only issue I had at first was a buzzing in the bridge on 3rd string. What it turned out to be was the intonation screw and once I adjusted it the rattle went away. Plugged in I couldn't ever hear it even on a clean channel so I knew it wasn't the frets or anything like that. Anyway if you're a fan of the Les Paul and the Strat do yourself a favor and check these babies out. You'll be glad you did.

"Solid, not amazing."
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I've had several PRS guitars, from core Custom 24s to SE's to S2's. This example is an S2 McCarty 594. It feels nice, looks nice and plays nice. That's about the extent of it. It doesn't do anything to excite the senses. I have a Prestige Heritage Standard that just begs to be played and is inspiring. These guitars, while solid, are just kind of "meh". There is one thread that I find runs through most, if not all PRS guitars I've tried; I absolutely do not like PRS pickups. The ones in this McCarty are very dull, like a blanket has been thrown over them. No clarity, they're just "there". In summary, these are good guitars, but you'd really need to spend some additional money to make them great. Whether or not you want to go down that road is, of course, up to you. But no matter what, zZounds is awesome, and they are my go-to retailer. Very easy to deal with.
