In on consignment and in great shape, this used McPherson is primed to make it's next owner content for some time to come. The neck is straight, the frets are still crowned, and the guitar is in great cosmetic shape with nothing negative worth mentioning.
If you have not played a McPherson, they are a game changing guitar. You can't un-experience something and once you play one, nothing else will feel quite as nice. Matt McPherson practically reinvented the acoustic guitar by implementing a cantilevered neck that doesn't stymie the top from ringing loudly and clearly. He also developed a bracing system that is essentially a system of perfectly placed tunnels and bridges. None of the braces interlock, giving every McPherson guitar extra volume, projection, and the ability to just keep getting louder and louder and LOUDER! But they can also whisper sweetly with light finger picking. Basically there is not a setting in the world a McPherson guitar would not sound phenomenal in because McPherson guitars simply sound phenomenal.
This one is a 4.5 meaning that it is 4.5" deep, giving it a big bodied sound with a full low end. Much like a Jumbo, this instrument will provide a wall of acoustic sound, that is as dense as it is complex. The back and sides are made from solid Macassar Ebony. A very dense tone wood that is found in South East Asia. This wood is known for making loud guitars that sound similar to Rosewood. A Redwood Top is featured on this guitar and it's similar in tone to Cedar. It's warm, rich, and complex with a darker top end, a touch less bass, and more headroom than Cedar. You can push this guitar to the point where it swallows other acoustic guitars, especially small bodied guitars that just don't have the volume capabilities of the big boys.
The neck is made from Mahogany and carved to the standard McPherson neck you can experience on any of their 6 string guitars. It has a soft V to it that feels comfortable in the hand. The classic 1.755" nut width is also very comfortable whether you are chording or soloing. The fretboard is made from Ebony and has a 14" radius on it for super easy playability. The black ebony fingerboard is bound with figured Hawaiian Koa. Did I mention this is a great looking guitar?! Included with this fine instrument is the original Ameritage Hardshell case that is literally the most impressive non-flight case hardshell you can get your hands on.
