Description

One word to tie together this McPherson’s tone, looks, and playability: smooth. The voice speaks of velvet (thanks to the combination of Port Orford Cedar and Madagascar Rosewood), the neck profile and string tension are gossamer, and the luster of the finish and the svelte curves from waist to headstock are likewise silk.


Our 2011 McPherson MG-4.0XP has been very well-cared for, but has opened up nicely. The voice offers a great balance between overtones and a crisp fundamental. Plugged in, all that translates faithfully onstage with an L.R. Baggs RTS-II pickup (with an added volume knob mounted inside the soundhole). And to seal the deal, this beauty comes wrapped up in a snug-fitting Ameritage hardshell case straight with McPherson’s label on the side.

The Madagascar Rosewood adds a bit more warmth to this strong strummer. Great for accompanying vocals or in a band setting. No wonder you see so many of these on stage with the bands from Nashville Music City!
