The McPherson MG 4.5 XP is a dreadnought-inspired guitar, with a balanced, versatile voice and a host of special features. From their offset soundhole, cantilevered neck, and unique bracing system, everything Matt McPherson and his team do is designed to maximize the tonal output of their specially selected tonewoods. On this model, they combined Adirondack spruce and Macassar ebony, and the result is absolutely beautiful. It's warm, rich, and balanced, with a pleasant but not overwhelming amount of sustain, making for a guitar that can tackle a wide range of playing styles.

This guitar was made in 2006, and it does show quite a bit of playing wear (mostly on the top), but It is in excellent condition overall. It offers the tonal benefits of a more open, played-in guitar, and has an L.R. Baggs iBeam active bridge plate pickup already installed.
