Description

Take a spin with this 2011 McPherson MG-3.5XP, and you won’t want to put in park for a looong time. The 3.5XP shape packs a lot of bark into a midsize body, and in pairing Flamed Maple with Engelmann Spruce the folks at McPherson tuned the voice for excellent string-to-string balance and projection.


There’s more warmth and color in the bass and lower mids than what you might expect from a Maple guitar, and the trebles round out the voice with clarity that cuts well in the mix. Flatpicked fiddle tunes ring out crisp and loud, and the play feel remained snappy and responsive all the way down into C tuning territory; dropped tuning fingerstyle romps are incredibly fun and easy.


In great shape, sweetly opened up, and dynamically-voiced for a myriad of styles, this 2011 McPherson MG-3.5XP is a helluva great guitar, all around.

This is a great strummer. The Maple body has a bright character that adds a chimey top end to accompany your boom-chuck! The McPherson necks are easy to hold as well, plus this one is a looker for playing on stage!
