This 2008 McPherson MG-4.5 sounds great, even when it's just sitting in its Ameritage case.

The slim, soft V neck allows for fast and easy fretting, and the cutaway & elevated fingerboard make for easy playability in all the registers! While this guitar is voiced for fingerstyle, we found it responded wonderfully to flatpicks as well, where the projection could really be cranked up a notch or two.

"Great all-round instrument for fingerpicking or strumming." - Al Petteway
