Carbon Series


The McPherson Touring guitar is a ¾-sized travel guitar that delivers a big sound in a small package. Though it is smaller than a standard acoustic, combining an offset sound hole, Cantilevered Neck, and McPherson’s patented carbon bracing system allows the soundboard to vibrate efficiently. The result is a full-bodied sound from a small, portable guitar. Pack it in the overhead bin, on the bus, or anywhere space is tight. With outstanding volume, warmth, and dynamic range, the Touring is the perfect travel companion, yet suited for the stage or studio.

McPherson Touring
Travel Size Carbon Fiber Acoustic

A 3/4 size guitar is easy to keep around the house or take on any travel adventure. A guitar that stays in tune despite weather changes makes it even better. The McPherson Touring is all that plus a beautiful inspiring tone that makes it easy to pick up and difficult to put down.

Is this the greatest travel guitar ever?
McPherson Touring Carbon acoustic guitar review

“McPherson builds (in our opinion) the greatest acoustic guitars in the world, and when they decided to make a 3/4 (travel) size guitar, they did not hold back or deviate from their incredible reputation. The Touring guitar is a carbon fiber acoustic that sounds, plays, and feels just as good as their legendary full size wood and carbon fiber guitars.”
