It's hard to know where to start with this McPherson MG 4.5 XP. Like all of their precisely engineered instruments, it sports an offset--and in this case, enlarged--soundhole, a cantilevered neck, and their bespoke over and underpass bracing system in both rosewood and spruce. 

All of these engineering decisions were made to maximize the potential vibration of the soundboard. McPherson could likely make any old tonewood sound good with their methods, but they've chosen some gorgeous flamed mahogany and Adirondack spruce for this dreadnought-style MG. The result? This is one powerful strummer, but it's no D-18 wannabe. 

McPherson's design has drawn some notable bass and complexity out of midrange-focused mahogany--so much, it vibrates into your chest. It'll majorly reward the player with a strong, precise right-hand attack. Like our other new McPhersons, this MG 4.5 XP comes with some major player upgrades to complete the package: EVO gold fretwire, pre-installed L.R. Baggs pickup, and custom Ameritage hard case.
