TL:DR 100% Original (One owner) Unbelievable setup w/ Gilded Treatment. Its all there and sounds as good as it looks

Woah! You dont see these often! Here is PRS Ted McCarty SC245 with a hand selected 10-top in a beautiful McCarty Sunburst from 2009. This is has the classic Single Cut design with a hand selected curly maple top on top off a super light yet tightly packed Ribbed Mahogany body. You can get lost looking at the 3d curly maple top, but as soon as you flip it over you will drool. I mean the cherry color on the back is a deep red that just steals your attention and its so nice to know its there as you hold it. As soon as you plug this thing in you just want to dig in and push the limits. The Slab of mahogany rings like a bell and produces this warm mid range sound that is so sonically pleasing. This piece has sustain for days and looks unreal, even the binding is curly maple which you dont see below special wood libraries. The 57/08 Tm pickups are extremely touch responsive and when you dig into the strings you activate that bite and crunch that just makes you grind your teeth. But when you relax and roll back a bit, you unlock the creamy and smooth tones especially on the neck pickup. This piece feels amazing in your hand with the nitrocellulose top coat it feels familiar and close to home. The Neck is a wide fat shape reminiscent of the early gibsons, but definitely not a baseball bat, a little more chunkier than average though and good amount of shoulder. This makes it harder to tame the neck and but you want to try when you hold this thing because it takes you exactly where you are trying to go. The headstock is super cool with the TD design and flamed looking peghead face. This piece over all has a very mid range focused articulate sound with a wide fat neck, it really simulates a 50/60's gibson sound but has that prs technology and surreal look. Its also got that 24.5 scale length which actually accentuates different harmonics quite drastically, more than you might think. It sounds awesome, The wraparound bridge is solid nickel with tons of sustain as well and this guitar will really let you push the limits of your playing. Thanks for looking!

This piece has been fully setup with our "Gilded Treatment." This means instrument has been fully inspected, professionally photographed and documented along will a full deep cleaning of any residual grime and dust, pots are cleaned of debris and sprayed with contact cleaner to add a layer of cleaning and protection. Its amazing how clean pots and contacts bring so much tone back. Polished frets to allow you to "glide" over the fretboard. Dialed Nut Height with optimal slots and contact points with lubrication. Action and intonation is dead on and neck relief is perfect. The neck has absolutely no warps or humps and the truss rod turns perfectly with tons of room to turn for seasonal changes. Thank you for looking

 You'll be shocked to find how good our pro setup is! A 100$ value free! big bends fretting out is a thing of the past, find out for yourself!

Condition: Awesome condition, the top is basically mint, one of the flathead body screw on the bridge shows some wear. There is a small ding on the binding thats hard to see, another ding on the back left side and slight buckle rash seen. Otherwise this piece is in perfect shape and has an unreal setup, ready to rock for decades to come!

Electronics: All original Electronics, 57/08 Pickups.
