Lovies Guitars is Excited to offer up this McPherson MG 4.5 Flamed Black Acacia & Bear Claw Sitka Spruce! From impeccable construction to second to none wood selection, McPherson guitars never disappoint on any level. McPherson Acoustic Guitars have come the closest to reinventing the wheel, so to speak. A cantilevered neck and revolutionary bracing system allow McPherson Guitars to produce more volume, more resonance, and more jaw-dropping tone. The top of this guitar is made from Bear Claw figured Sitka Spruce. Bear Claw is the name for the ‘figuring’ in the wood. Most Sitka spruce is pretty straight-grain but you’ll notice the different shades of light and dark on the top of the guitar created by this figuring. Each piece of Spruce featuring bear claw is truly one of a kind. This guitar is 4.5″ thick which gives it a very large sound with plenty of bass despite being made from some bright tone-woods.
The back and sides are made from highly figured Acacia. Often mistaken for Koa in terms of how it looks, it’s also confused with Koa for how it sounds! They are closely related and share some similarities when it comes to hardness and density. The neck is made from Mahogany and features the very comfortable soft V Profile you’ll experience on McPherson Guitars. The fingerboard is made from ebony and is bound with figured Acacia, just like the entire body. The neck is cantilevered and never sits on the top of the guitar like it does on most acoustic guitars. This allows for unmatched resonance, volume, and projection. You’ll find this type of neck joint on many high-end Arch Top guitars. Excellent Shape with light hardware tarnish, light marks on the headstock, a few indents and micro marks on the body, a couple light scuffs at the heel and a couple indents on the neck, easy 9.5/10!
