McGill Picasso Nylon, Brazilian Rosewood & Spruce - Pre-Owned


Make an enquiry


There's something immediately compelling about the asymmetrical look of this Collector's Series "Picasso" model from Nashville-based luthier Paul McGill. Specializing in unique, fingerstyle-centric acoustic and nylon string guitars, his guitars are always a treat for players looking for a nuanced instrument that can take center stage as a solo instrument. A Brazilian rosewood nylon string like this most certainly can do that. Combining a 12-fret body with a unique cutaway that opens up the 13th and 14th frets, plus a longer scale length of 25.78" (655mm), this guitar has both comfortable playability as well as a clear, rich voice with a clean attack.

Originally installed with his proprietary RMC pickup system, it has just been replaced by Paul's new and improved Go acoustic pickup, with volume and tone controls on the side. With no notable dings or scratches, this guitar is in excellent condition with fantastic playability, further improved by a recent set-up by Paul himself.
