The most expensive electric guitar on Amazon

PRS Private Stock McCarty 594 Koa Figured Mahogany

A trip into the realm of the ridiculous.

At the time I write this in May 2018, the most expensive electric guitar on Amazon surprisingly isn't a Fender nor a Gibson, but a PRS. Specifically, the PRS Private Stock McCarty 594. The price is in the 5 figure range.

What type of man buys this guitar?

This guitar will probably never see a stage, because this is one of those pride-of-ownership instruments. And it's probably also true that this guitar will hardly ever be actually used.

The type of guy who buys an instrument like this is a collector who likes guitars, or an outright guitar collector. Yes, there is a difference between the two. One collects expensive things like Rolex watches and just wants a nice guitar to pluck around on at home, and the other actually has an expensive guitar collection with this PRS being the latest addition to it.

What's the coolest thing about this guitar?

koa fret inlays

For me, the coolest thing is the fact the fingerboard inlays are koa species wood, hence the reason they're wood colored and not gray.

The truss rod cover at the headstock is also wood, and I think the tuner buttons are wood too (but even if they're not, they are still of the highest quality materials.)

There's also a tasteful blend of gold hardware throughout, which includes the output jack and strap buttons.

This guitar is about a very high level of craftsmanship using woods to achieve the best possible natural look you can get.

I consider this one of the good ones from PRS. There is absolutely no flamey, stripey, or quilty crapola going on with this guitar. The woods on display here with this axe truly do show off the fact it's a luxury instrument.

Does this guitar say "high class?" Yes.

Will the guitar hold its value and increase over time? Yes.

But most importantly:

Will this guitar put a smile on the face every time you look at it? Yes.

This PRS sells for a ridiculous price, but it will make the man who buys it a very happy guy.
