Not subject to 2017 CITES regulations - Can be shipped to international customers immediately.
This a 10-top McCarty Sunburst 594 Doublecut which also features a solid Katalox neck. In light of 2017's CITES regulations on rosewood, numerous manufacturers have been trying to source alternative woods which do not fall under stipulation of the CITES regulation on rosewood and can therefore be shipped to buyers with immediate effect.
Katalox is one such wood which has physical, tonal and grain properties very similar to Indian Rosewood and makes an ideal choice for a tonewood to be used with bearing CITES regulations in mind. It is slightly porous, feels very robust in-hand and delivers a good amount of bottom end to the natural tone of the guitar without losing its attack and we find it works very well with PRS' 58/15LT pickups.
All-in-all, we are very impressed with these models, and the McCarty Sunburst goes very well with the grain of the Katalox neck...
