McGibney Custom Guitars in Colorado specializes in custom acoustic and electric guitars. Matt McGibney takes his woodworking knowledge and experience as a pro guitar tech and pours it into building guitars that are absolutely bar none! These instruments exceed even the greatest offerings of the big boys.
Matt creates many different styles but this S-style is particularly gorgeous and absolutely rips!
Crafted from toneful alder with a stunning surf green finish, this guitar is gonna turn some heads. The C profile maple neck (.897"-949") feels slim yet comfy in the hands. A 9.5" radius rosewood fingerboard rounds out the construction of this Stratty beauty, along with a 1.714" nut.
All that tone is pumped through a trio of McGibney single coil pickups (which are made by hand) and they have the classic 60s tone that we all know and love(N: 8.15k, N: 7.2k, B: 8.4k).
Traditional controls of Vol-Tone-Tone and a 5-way switch give you all the controls you need to coax the sound you need outta this baby. There's more than meets the eye here though. The bottom Tone pot is a push-pull that engages the bridge pickup in all positions! How's that for variety??
This guitar is feels great and has a nice comfy weight of 6.5 lbs. It has some nice, light relicing including some awesome looking checking. Playwear wise there's light swirl on the pickguard but this all blends in with the reliced look of this guitar.
The pro techs here at EMS have given it a full fret level and setup so that it's ready for stage or studio when you receive it. It will ship the next day with the included gig bag.
