Description

This 2008 McPherson MG-4.5 sounds great, even when it's just sitting in its Ameritage case. The folks at McPherson Guitars paired a pretty Ziricote set for the back and sides with a Redwood top, one of our favorite fingerstyle-friendly materials. The result is a voice whose middle register is warm to the touch, but both the bass and treble strings are crisp and present, making this well-balanced for fingerpicked arrangements where you need extra articulation between the strings.

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.

This McPherson is in splendid condition, has an easy richness and warmth in the bass, and the L.R. Baggs RTSII pickup is a wonderful addition for the gigging musician. You couldn't ask for more bang for the buck.
 
Great all-round instrument for fingerpicking or strumming.
