Description

A Classical guitar with modern sensibilities: our 2005 McGill Picasso turns heads and tunes ears right out of the case. Gorgeous Cocobolo back and sides are here paired with a European Spruce top and Koa bindings and Paul’s dropped shoulder cutaway. The effect, when combined with the offset position markers, elliptical rosette, and open headstock, is to stand out from the nylon string crowd with an exciting flair. Elsewhere, McGill’s Picasso model offers some of the creature comforts of more progressively set up crossover guitars, like a slim 1.95” nut and cutaway, while maintaining the depth of response and color of a traditional classical guitar. The figured Cedar neck has a U-shaped profile that will feel instantly familiar, and Paul’s coaxed the setup into slinky territory for effortless playability.
Our McGill Picasso is the sort of Classical that’s not afraid to make a statement, and it backs it up with a rich and enveloping voice.

Paul McGill is an innovator in the guitar world. His experience working with Chet Atkins, Muriel Anderson, and many others has honed his ability to develop the best instruments for professional musicians. The Picasso is a work of art, pun intended. The low shoulder approach to a cutaway makes this a great instrument for the player who wants to reach up to the higher frets. The tone is lively and beautiful with resonance and clarity to spare.
