A beautiful instrument from top to bottom, this McPherson MG 4.0XP pairs Beeswing Mahogany back and sides with a Port Orford Cedar top. The Port Orford soundboard creates a tone that falls between Spruce and a true Cedar, warm yet stiff. The Beeswing back and sides provide a balanced sound with quick response, and give this guitar a stunning look with a tight, wavy grain and interlocking flame (see photos).
McPherson's guitars are unique. The offset elliptical soundhole increases the flexible surface area on the central part of the instrument, creating extended resonance and full tone. It also has a cantilevered, carbon fiber reinforced neck that is extremely stable, and is set up with the Buzz Feiten tuning system, This design allows for exceptionally accurate playing and superb intonation. Since the fretboard is not fixed to the top of the instrument (see photo), it allows the body of the guitar to vibrate at its full potential, increasing resonance and boosting sustain. This McPherson MG 4.0XP comes with a custom fit Ameritage hard case.
