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 called the Phoenix Rising from McNaught finished in a Natural Clear Coat. It has a three dimensional Diamond Quilt top that is enhanced by letting its natural beauty shine through with the Clear Coat Finish. It is equipped with Gold hardware to off set the color of the top with a matching headstock. The body and neck are bound with natural Quilt Maple. The fretboard is Indian Rosewood with Mother of Pearl Geometric Pyramid inlay.
The body is mahogany with the McNaught deep set through neck they are famous for also in mahogany. It is equipped with Duncan Antiquity pickups that sound wonderful and sustain for days. It also comes with an LR Baggs Piezo acoustic pickup system and preamp. This is another great example of a classic McNaught guitar.
The top and finish on this guitar has been described as Liquid Toffee by some members of the Club McNaught Forum, and with a look at the adjoining photos I am sure you will agree it is a special instrument.
