Matt McPherson, the founder of McPherson® Guitars, has partnered with Ellis Seal, an aerospace engineer and founder of Composite Acoustics® to create a carbon guitar that can truly produce the tonal warmth and dynamic range previously found only in high-end wood guitars.
Weighing only 3.7 pounds with a three quarter sized body, this guitar sports a premium proprietary offset soundhole and a cantilever neck for improved tonal resonance. An award winning L.R. Baggs electronics completes the package, providing for a compact stage-worthy carbon guitar with the personality and playability of a full-sized wood guitar.
This build from McPherson certainly redefines a carbon fiber guitar. We haven't had anyone pick up the guitar and not be amazed ever since they arrived. The guitar sounds extremely loud and musical and is difficult to differentiate from a wood guitar in a blind test. The notes are extremely articulate with a clarity and depth of tone that shines through especially when plugged in.
If you are looking for a professional sounding guitar that does not require maintenance and will withstand heat and humidity, or one that will fit snugly into a car boot or airplane compartment, this exceptional guitar will certainly delight you.
