David Thomas McNaught and Dave Mansel are the Master minds behind McNaught Guitars produced in Locust, North Carolina for such Artist as John5, Journey, Godsmack, and Shinedown. McNaught produces some of the finest sounding instruments on the planet. They come in a variety of body configurations and are all fully customizable. If you have a concept, McNaught can make it come true.
Here is a single cut body shape from McNaught with a Natural finish that really shows off this Quilted Maple top. The top is a Diamond grade Quilted Maple that has what some people call very big sausage like quilt that is three dimensional and evenly sized over the whole guitar. I do not know where McNaught finds some of these tops but I am glad they do.
The body and neck are solid Mahogany with a Rosewood fret board and matching Quilted Maple head stock and Gold Sperzel locking tuners. The neck and body are bound in flamed Maple as well. The fret board has great Pyramid inlay makers made from Mother of Pearl that match the over all look of this instrument perfectly. Along with the Tone Pros Gold hardware and you have one of the best looking single cut guitars I have ever seen.
The Wagner Goodwood pickups mated to the all ready great sustain of a McNaught guitar make this one tremendously powerful sounding guitar as well.
