The incredibly popular McPherson Sable with Honey Comb finish and Gold Hardware is back at Heartbreaker Guitars! This McPherson beauty also features an upgraded LR Baggs Anthem SL pickup in black. Leave it to Matt McPherson to make the best Carbon Fiber Series guitar on the planet! You would not believe the warmth of this guitar. You will swear you are listening to a wood guitar, but you are not! And this thing can take it all: bad weather, extreme heat, humidity, dryness, and yes, it can even get wet! You are not going to worry about this little baby. Durability, design, and tone are what this guitar delivers!
The unmistakable shape, the perfect size and the exact spot on the guitar make it a McPherson. The real power of the offset soundhole is how it increases the flexible surface area on the central part of the instrument. Vibrations from the bridge travel across a longer unencumbered soundboard to increase sustain and resonance. Man can build complex sonic structures, but only the soul can tap into them.
With a sturdy graphite core, the necks remain straight through even the most drastic temperature and humidity changes. No need to ever adjust it! The specially-desgined cantilevered neck never touches the top of the guitar, allowing the top to resonate uninhibted and producing that pure, focused McPherson tone.
Specially-designed bracing system allows the sound vibrations to spread evenly throughout the top of the guitar with minimal physical contact. This allows the guitar to produce the most amount of sound with the greatest influence of tone and frequency.
