THREE TO GET READY

Inspiring models that go to great lengths

-

PRS McCarty 594 £3,699

Utilising the 24.594-inch scale length accurately measured from classic vintage Les Pauls, the 594 is one of the most sonorous and inspiring PRS electrics around – and that’s saying something. With double-cut playabilit­y and a pair of expressive 58/15 LT pickups, it’s a hugely refined take on a classic rock staple.

Fender Player Duo-Sonic £589

The most elegant of Fender’s student guitars looks gorgeous in Desert Sand in this affordable reissue that forms part of Fender’s Mexican-built Player Series. The 24-inch scale and 9.5-inch fretboard radius make for a slinky, slippery playing experience that means this lightweigh­t electric will be hard to put down.

Gretsch Billy Duffy Signature Falcon £3,589

Few guitars are as grand as a White Falcon, but Cult hero Billy Duffy’s signature model, with Bigsby vibrato, adds a little extra rock to the model’s undoubted roll. Unlike some 300series Gibson semis, the scale length is 25.5 inches, like a Strat, so expect plenty of ring and shimmer from its customwoun­d Blacktop Filter’Trons.
