If you like your rosewood with an extra dose of chime and treble clarity, granadillo might be your answer. This Central American tonewood, while not officially a rosewood, has many similar tonal properties. Before guitar makers discovered it, it had been used for marimba bars for its clear, sweet tone. It can be hard to come by, but we can always trust McPherson to do a fine tonewood justice. Paired on this MG 4.0 XP with some wildly figured bearclaw Sitka spruce, this versatile guitar looks as good as it sounds.

Like our other McPhersons, this MG 4.0 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.
