This McPherson 4.0XP comes with a striking sinker redwood top and tight-grain Indian rosewood back and sides. 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 well with Indian rosewood which provides for a great bass and tonal complexity.
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 guitar is new and sounds lush and full right out of the box. The 4" body depth gives it plenty of volume and headroom and will delight even the most aggressive player. The guitar plays like a dream when plugged in and reproduces an acoustically rich and balanced tone thanks to the LR Baggs electronics which have been specially tweaked to better complement each McPherson guitar.
