This McPherson 4.0XP comes with a tight-grain sinker redwood top and a lovely set of ziricote with plenty of pleasing wood hues.
Sinker redwood provides for a lush open tone similar to cedar but has the added advantage of projection found on spruce top guitars. It pairs very well with Ziricote, which offers more clarity than the familiar east Indian rosewood and projects a clean, resonant and reverb-like tone. This particular guitar has aged very well and projects a wholesome sweet tone with plenty of clarity that will please even the most demanding player.
Like all McPherson guitars, the guitar comes with a proprietary offset soundhole and a cantilevered neck which enhances the tone of the guitar by allowing the top of the guitar to vibrate freely. Within the soundhole, a series of braces are designed to arch just under the guitar topwood with minimal contact, allowing tonal vibrations to be maximized while providing for structural strength.
This consigned guitar has been well cared for by its owner and is as good as new. With new pieces being listed at USD$14,000 these days and production numbers being limited, we are certain this guitar will hold its value very well in time.
