Matt McPherson:

It’s always been more than just putting the parts together. It’s coming up with ideas, testing principles and designing a masterpiece. For us, that has meant over 30 years of innovation, starting with the unmistakable shape of our offset soundhole. We agonized over the challenges of inventing a bracing system that goes beyond structure to actually deliver vibration. And we created a cantilevered neck that is unwavering and stable. Most of all, we listened to the musicians. A great song stands the test of time. A great guitar does the same.

We believe in a unity among the artisans who create the instruments and the artists who create the music. Just like the singer who tries to reach a new note, we never settled for tones when we could create overtones. It wasn’t enough to perfect the skills of the master luthier, we wanted to defy sonic principles to free up the instrument’s ability to sustain and resonate.

The craft of guitar-making. The craft of songwriting. The art of music. Find out more at McPherson Guitars
