Back in the 1950s, when electric guitars were emerging on the market, single-coil pickups were the only option available to the manufacturers. That thing changed later in the decade, when Seth Lover, Ted McCarty and Gibson`s engineers came up with a humbucking pickup, which had two coils. However, throughout the 1950s, and to this very date, there are two main types of single-coil pickups, the regular, thin ones and fat, soapbar pickups. Gibson`s P-90 is a soapbar pickup. They were an attempt to strenghten the tone and output of regular single-coils. Ted McCarty DC 245 Soapbar is one of rare PRS models with fat single-coil pickups. Two of them are installed on top of the solid double-cut body. Body is made of mahogany back and two-piece flamed maple cap. Simple wrap around bridge is installed behind the pickups. Neck is made of mahogany and it`s topped with a 22-fret fingerboard made of bound rosewood.
