McPherson guitars are a cut above many other brands, even at the basic entry level. But with the tonewoods featured on this guitar, along with the spectacular wooden marquetry, things have been taken way up. And I mean, like on an express elevator to the top of the Empire State Building – an impression of which appears on the expansive back of this very impressive example of the luthier’s art.
