The sound of an acoustic guitar has moved and inspired me for as long as I can remember. But more often than not in an amplified situation, the sound of a normally wonderful acoustic instrument is found less than desirable and does not translate well over a sound system without help. This is not the case with McPherson Guitars. In almost all situations, from arenas to churches, our Front of House engineer takes exactly what I give him and just turns it up. The need for compression is almost nonexistent with the natural balance and sustain of these guitars. And the use of equalization, if at all, is kept to a bare minimum. The beauty of the woods and the workmanship that are put into these incredible instruments is absolutely stunning. And to top it all off, I don’t have to worry about using this guitar on the road.
