MCPHERSON MG3.5XP ENGELMANN INDIAN ROSEWOOD


This McPherson MG3.5XP comes with an Engelmann spruce top and tight-grain Indian rosewood back and sides. Engelmann spruce has a lush bell-like tone with broader and stronger overtone component. It is therefore a good choice for players who require a richer, more complex tone than can be obtained from the more common Sitka spruce top. Engelmann pairs very well with Indian rosewood which adds great bass and tonal complexity to the overall tone of the guitar. 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 is in immaculate condition and is as good as new. It has aged nicely and sounds lush and full. Its 3.5" body depth gives it a delicate response which will certainly delight your ears. The guitar plays like a dream when plugged in and reproduces an acoustically rich and balanced tone thanks to onboard LR Baggs electronics which have been specially tweaked to perfectly complement each McPherson guitar.
