McPherson MG 4.0 XP Macassar Ebony and Redwood (Pre-owned)

Gobsmacked we were when this gorgeous Pre-owned McPherson walked its way in from one of our favorite humans! This guitar has never left the house and has been played not a once from the looks of her. We cannot describe how Mint this instrument actually. 

The craftsmanship of this guitar is amazing. The tone woods are second to none as well. The lines on the Ebony are striking and spaced evenly for a grand tonal delivery. The Redwood delivers a warmth to match the clarity and punch of the Ebony as well. When you add the tone woods to McPhersons proprietary bracing system you have at your hands a guitar that is able to create a tonal landscape that is unlike any other. 

In play this instrument delivers a very round and fluid sound with a "bloom" in sound as the notes seem to ring on forever. There is a nice compression when hit hard and then the bloom comes. With fingerpicking there is an immediate warmth and consistency across the board. We cannot stress how easy it is to play this guitar as well. The neck is small and comfortable as well! New this instrument is close to $1,4000. Here is a rare chance to own a piece of guitar artistry at an unbelievable price. 

McPherson

The acoustic guitar is an instrument with a lot of history. Some of the most incredible acoustic instruments were made in America during what is known as the “Golden Era” of guitar building, but not much has changed since. Many boutique builders pride themselves on making the most faithful recreations of these aging instruments, and most of the focus is placed on looking into the past.  McPherson Guitars is not one of these brands.

Believing that there is more to strive for out of flat-top acoustics, McPherson introduced their revolutionary Offset Soundhole Technology over three decades ago. This allows for greater vibration in the center of the guitar top, as well as more volume and clarity in the ears of the player. Their unique bracing system also creates a larger, more even space for the top to vibrate, increasing the clarity and projection of sound. Every McPherson guitar features a cantilevered neck, which means that the fretboard does not actually make contact with the guitar top. This design allows the space underneath the fretboard to vibrate, again contributing to a larger area of flexible surface on the top. McPherson guitars also offer an enormous selection of tonewoods, from the classic Spruce, Rosewood, and Mahogany varieties to the rare and exotic. Some of the less common tonewoods like Acacia, Cocobolo, Walnut, Pau Rosa, Macassar Ebony, and others can be combined in interested ways to make very unique sounding instruments. While many of the advancements McPherson has made in acoustic guitar building result in superior tone, sustain, and resonance, McPhersons are also far less susceptible to damage than their “Golden Era” counterparts. Every McPherson neck is fitted with a carbon graphite truss rod in a triangulated system that is so stable that it eliminates the need for neck adjustment. If you are looking for an acoustic guitar that is more than just a replica, look no further than McPherson Guitars. In 50 years, they might be the ones being replicated.
