You are looking at a McPherson Guitars Carbon Series Touring Acoustic-Electric Guitar Gloss Top with Silver Binding, serial number CT630SV. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase.

Through collaboration with aerospace engineer Ellis Seal, McPherson Guitars is proud to introduce the Carbon Series instruments, which offer players a more affordable carbon fiber acoustic guitar that doesn't sacrifice in signature McPherson tone, playability or performance. Everything about this instrument is truly groundbreaking, and with its superb tonal qualities and unique, innovative design features, the Carbon Series guitars are sure to change the way you think about carbon fiber guitars. Crafted in Sparta, WI by McPherson Guitars, each and every Carbon Series guitar was precision-built and meticulously engineered to create an exceptionally lightweight and incredibly durable instrument. But most of all, the McPherson Carbon Series guitars were made to stay in tune and offer beautiful tone & outstanding playability.

The first and most important aspect of an acoustic guitar is of course its tone. As an acoustic guitar player, you might be skeptical to the idea of a guitar not being made out of wood considering that tonewoods have a significant impact on the guitar's overall sound. To impart more of a wood-like acoustic voice, the McPherson Carbon Series Touring Guitar was designed using a patent-pending carbon fiber body and bracing system that was painstakingly tailored to give this guitar the warmth, dynamic range and power that you'd normally only expect from a premium wood guitar. Unlike traditional wood-crafted acoustic guitars which react with climate changes, the carbon fiber material makes these guitars resistant to changes in humidity and temperature. In addition to the proprietary body material, the top also employs McPherson's signature offset soundhole for superior resonance, sustain and projection.

The McPherson Carbon Series Touring Guitar also utilizes McPherson's innovative Cantilevered "no-touch" neck design. The neck is not connected or glued to the top of the guitar, which allows the top to vibrate more freely to deliver a powerful, full-sized sound despite its smaller body dimensions. For an ultra-comfortable playing experience, the neck is shaped into a cozy soft V profile and features a shorter 22-3/4" scale length. For unparalleled intonation, the McPherson Touring Guitar comes equipped with a proprietary nut featuring offset string grooves as well as compensated bridge positioning.

Fitted with custom-voiced L.R. Baggs electronics, the Carbon Series Touring offers exceptional amplified tone and unsurpassed plugged-in performance.

Other features on this sleek, sexy carbon fiber guitar include stainless steel frets, enclosed Hipshot tuning machines, silver binding, a gloss-finished carbon fiber weave top, and a durable, rich, textured body finish.

The McPherson Carbon Series Touring guitar is the ultimate, premium-quality travel guitar that's perfect for any pro musician and for any occasion. To protect your instrument no matter where you're going, an ultra-durable hardshell case and a travel-friendly gig bag are both included with your purchase.
