Description

Crossover guitars span a wide range, from nearly traditional classicals to very contemporary designs which borrow heavily from the steel string world. We’ve got a 2017 Crossover from Marc Maingard that errs on the side of the latter, with a C-shaped neck, radiused fretboard, Florentine Cutaway, arm and rib bevels, and a relatively slim nut (48.4mm). As such, this gorgeous Crossover is exceptionally easy to play, and the combination of Brazilian Rosewood and Italian Cedar makes for a warm, enveloping voice.


The body itself is slim, and with the cutaway and bevels this Maingard is refreshingly accessible to a variety of players. We’re talking about a guitar that weighs 4lbs soaking wet; rich and easy is the name of the game.
