I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Tech Talk - Paul Daniel McGill MKS Custom

This wonderous beast was custom built by Paul McGill using scrumptious Cocobolo Rosewood and some 40 year old German Spruce that Paul found years ago. The Headplate, heelcap, backstrip and rosette feature rare burled Box Elder with superb figure and colors. The headstock and top are bordered with Abalone. The voice is all McGill, big, bold projection thanks to Paul's unique bracing that incorporates internal struts add strength and allow for lighter top bracing. The trebles just leap out of this guitar and the bass is resounding. This is a real room filler and it's rich and beauitiful across the spectrum. This is a very special custom McGill Guitar.
