McPherson Jumbo Acoustic

Following on from Bertram's recent post about a Hoyer Jazz guitar with triple soundholes, here is another guitar with an unusual configuration of three soundholes. Appparently, it is a Japanese-made McPherson jumbo acoustic (this example is currently being offered for sale on eBay). Other than that, I'm afraid I know nothing about it.

As ever, if anyone reading has any additional information, please use the comments below this post. Thanks.

  1. I have been looking into these guitars as I have a client with one and it needs a neck reset. There is not a lot of info around. These were originally designed by Matt McP and his dad and built in their garage in Sparta Wisc. There was apparently a parting of ways and the elder McP contracted with a factory in Japan to produce these. I believe about 3000 were made, the one I have been working on is srieal # 80. Any info you obtain would be great if you care to

  2. Matt McP and his dad designed and built these in the late 70's until production was moved to japan. Younger mcp disavows any knowledge about the instruments. I am trying to find the factory that produced them or some drawings as a client of mine has one that needs a neck reset. Any Ideas anyone?
