McPherson

MG Series

The original McPherson 6-string jumbo body takes the tonal qualities of a dreadnaught style guitar and enhances the richness and essence of that big, boomy sound to create a true work of auditory art. The MG delivers an unrivaled articulated and immaculate tone and is signified by its rounded Venetian cutaway. The MG is also available in a 9 & 12 string build.
