Played both today at the local GC. To me, it sounded like the MCCARTY had better articulation of tone. Notes seem to jump out of the amp better thatn the 22. I had my heart set on a Custom 22 for some reason but the McCarty seemed to kill it for BLues and Rock anyway. Any thoughts on that would be appreciated. Thanks alot.

Yeah, that's very true!


That, and the general set-up of a given guitar.

Compare them unplugged, and through other amps, and finally bring in your own amp.

I'm with Caevan on this. Personally, I like the Custom 24 the best of any of their guitars but bear in mind that all of them have different necks available too so you'll want to try several examples of any model you look at and ask about the various neck shapes.

i have noticed the same clear note thing with my friends McCarty. i suspect the pickups are the reason. the custom 22 has a hotter set. the McCarty pickups are lower output. which i prefer anyhoo. but i can't afford either one so what difference does it make to me? :cry:
