“There’s a walk in closet in my office stacked full of guitars. Vintage, popular high end brands, boutique, custom. All are great . Few have left that closet since March of 2012. That’s when I received my McPherson. I love all my guitars, but I need only my McPherson. It’s the most versatile and consistent guitar I’ve ever owned. I don’t leave home without it.”
Singer / Songwriter and host of Outdoor Allstars T.V.
“I have never played a guitar that plays with such ease. The sound of the guitar had me so wrapped up in playing, I completely lost track of time! It’s like it puts you in another world when you are playing. I Love It!”
“The super-rich tone, incredible sustain, excellent craftsmanship, and uncompromising attention to detail make my McPherson the finest acoustic guitar I’ve ever owned. Whether I’m in the studio or playing live, the McPherson is always the guitar I reach for first.”
“The difference between a McPherson and any other acoustic guitar I have played is as profound as the difference between an upright piano and a concert grand! They are simply the most stable, tonally balanced and versatile guitars I have ever played, bar none.”
“The McPherson Guitar is one of the best instruments that I’ve had the pleasure of playing. It’s construction, playability and sound quality is second to none. All that said, the greatest compliment that an artist could give a guitar maker is that it makes them want to play more, and that it does. Thanks for a great guitar guys!”
“Everywhere I play, the sound techs are astonished that they don’t need to adjust the EQ on my McPherson! They say it sounds naturally perfect. And that sound, along with the beauty of this instrument is an inspiration to me!”
“I cannot say enough about this guitar. From the moment I picked up the McPherson and strummed it for the first time, I knew there was something wonderfully unique about this guitar. It’s beautiful tone, quality craftsmanship, and stunning appearance has inspired me to write and record with a new passion.”
Winner of multiple Grammy, Dove and Male Vocalist of the Year Awards.
“How they get the big low end without being boomy out of that little hole above the strings is a mystery, but it’s one of the best full range, totally balanced guitars I’ve had the privilege of playing.”
“These guitars are simply amazing. I remember the first time I recorded with a McPherson guitar. I borrowed a McPherson from a friend of mine. The guitar was absolutely amazing. The best sounding acoustic guitar that I’ve ever recorded with.”
“When I opened the case for the first time I was stunned by the craftsmanship of the McPherson. When I played it I was stunned by its tone, playability and intonation. When I plugged it in I was stunned by how well it cut through the mix when playing with a band. Sound engineers and band members who have worked with me for years have all given unsolicited raves regarding the natural punchy tone of my McPherson guitar. To my surprise I’ve never been this impressed with a guitar before.”
“McPherson redefines the acoustic guitar, in my opinion. The first time I took mine out of it’s luxurious humidified case, I struck a big E chord….and lemme tell ya, that chord rang out till I had to mute it! The cantilevered neck, paired w/ the offset sound hole and the eclectic mix of exotic woods, takes these guitars to a whole new level. Sustain and Tone are two things, that will never be a concern again. I tour non-stop with my band, Uncle Kracker, and I can honestly say…I don’t leave home without my McPherson!”
Studio Musician, Producer, and Instrumental Recording Artist (Whitney Houston, James Ingram, Amy Grant).
“Matt McPherson has simply taken the acoustic guitar to a new level. He’s raised the bar on overall craftsmanship, attention to detail, and playability. Throw in some of the finest wood combinations to be found anywhere and it should be no surprise that I’m constantly asked by engineers when I pick one up and hit a chord, ‘Wow, what’s that?’ It’s a McPherson, of course.”
