The History

Signature Innovations

Offset Sound Hole

Believing that traditional acoustics could be innovated, McPherson introduced a revolutionary Offset Soundhole Technology. The placement of the sound hole allows for a lengthened and uninterrupted soundboard, amplifying vibration in the center of the guitar top. This also produces more volume and clarity in the ears of the player.

Cantilevered Neck

Every McPherson guitar features a Cantilevered Neck, which is not glued or connected to the top of the guitar, but instead floats above it. This design allows the soundboard area underneath the fretboard to vibrate freely, which increases the sustain of the guitar.

Overpass / Underpass Bracing

McPherson’s unique Overpass/Underpass Bracing System creates a larger, more even space for the top to vibrate. The soundboard’s braces cross each other but never touch or inhibit vibration. This frees the braces to vibrate independently while still lending structural support and maximizing soundboard vibration.

Carbon Reinforced Neck

The McPherson Carbon Reinforced Neck is praised for its incredible strength and stability and is built around the largest carbon fiber truss rod ever used on a guitar. Attached to the body with a triangulated heel design, it stabilizes the neck and virtually eliminates the need for neck adjustments.
