Limited to only 25 pieces worldwide, this special run is designed in black lining and gold hardware. The limited edition package comes with gold evo fretwire and gold hardware complete with Matt McPherson's signature on the label.
The McPherson Touring is designed to reproduce 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 unique 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.
