You are looking at my beloved 2003 PRS McCarty guitar. This guitar, serial # 3 80809, was made in 2003 and purchased new in 2004.
It has the “10” top option finished in tortoise shell, which is much like gibsons root beer finish, but a bit brighter and more colorful. The flamed maple top on this thing is really extraordinary. It changes from a dark mahogany to a deep orange and everything in between depending on the lighting and angle. The flames are wide and deep and shifting, very 3D looking with natural binding. Just look at the pictures, this thing could have gone on an artist series PRS. The neck and back are made of mahogany, and the fingerboard is rosewood with the abalone shell bird inlay option. Everything on the guitar is original with the exception of the bridge studs. I replaced the originals with TonePros looking studs. These have improved the sustain, and they prevent the bridge from moving when changing strings. The original studs are included. This McCarty pickups sound great, very deep and rich and smooth in all positions, and the coil tap lets you get some great single-coil sounds, very versitile. This has been my workhorse guitar and there are some dings here and there. There is a chip in the finish on the bottom left side of the top, and there are a few dings on the lower horn and the tip on the headstock. Also, there is a ding on the back. Otherwise this PRS sounds, plays, and looks amazing. The original hard-shell case is included.
