This McNally S12 model features a Mahogany back and sides paired with a Sitka Spruce top, constructed with Baked European Red Spruce bracing in Northern Irish luthier Ciaran McNally's small body shape.

The S12 model typically is a 12-fret; however, this guitar features 14-fret construction with a Mahogany neck with volute and an Ebony fretboard with matching Ebony bridge.

The guitar is finished with gloss on its body while the back of the neck features a satin finish to enhance the fretting-hand's playing experience.

The McNally S12 model comes with a Hiscox Pro II case and certificate of authenticity.

Ciaran McNally gave us his thoughts on this S12 build:

“A classic and very versatile wood combination in a small but powerful package. The short scale and 43mm nut on this one will make it a perfect sofa-song writing companion. Simple wood purfling, bindings and rosette, make for a no frills but elegant, quality instrument. The mahogany really pops and flashes with the gloss finished body, while a satin back of neck keeps it smooth and fast in the left hand.”
