Every McPherson guitar, with its offset soundholes, cantilevered necks, and over and underpass bracing system, is a creatively engineered treat, even with the most typical of tonewoods. But this is no typical guitar by any measure. This special MG is outfitted with some beautifully bearclawed Sitka spruce on the top, and for the back and sides: Tasmanian black-hearted sassafras. Reminiscent of myrtle in its coloration, and quickly responsive like walnut or koa, sassafras combined here with Sitka provides incredible warmth, balance, and that nuanced, played-in tone we're all looking for. The large-bodied MG design, with its 4.5" depth and generous curves, is a versatile guitar, but this one is especially well-suited to fingerstyle.
Condition of this 2019 guitar couldn't be much cleaner, and like all our McPherson guitars, it comes equipped with an L.R. Baggs EAS pickup and its original Ameritage hard case.
