McAlister Sarzana S14 Acoustic Electric Guitar Madagascar Rosewood w/OHSC Used


$ 6,999.95 

Welcome, you are looking at a gorgeous piece.
This is the McAlister USA Sarzana S14 Acoustic Electric Guitar.
24.9" scale. 1.70" nut width. 15" bottom bout. 4" deep. 75" 1st to .92" 12th fret neck depth.
Roy McAlister lovingly crafts each instrument to order- resulting in exceptional tone and response.
McAlister's builds have attracted an artist roster featuring some of the biggest names in acoustic guitar, including David Crosby, Graham Nash, and Jackson Browne.
This example is very special- it's the only 14 fret Sarazana McAlister has made.
The woods here are very special as well- the back and sides are solid Madagascar rosewood and the top is solid spruce.
This S14 has a tone that sets it apart from nearly every high end acoustic I've had the joy of playing- the bottom end is warm and tight, but pronounced.
The highs cut but have depth.
Every note in a chord have their own space while retaining a lively feel.
Single note runs come right to the front while maintaining a big sonic footprint.
The projection here, especially from a 15" bottom bout, is astounding- this instrument fills the room.
Should you need to reach the back of the hall, this Sarzana features a K&K preamp.
This enables the true tone of the guitar to come through uncolored- very important when you are starting with a guitar this special.
The mahogany neck here has a comfortable oval C profile- good mass, but a thin feel.
The ebony fingerboard features a 12" radius- perfect for chording or single note lines.
Moving up the neck we have the Delta tuning machines, which boast an incredible 1:21 gear ratio.
The look here, as you can see in pics, is gorgeous.
The natural finish puts the Madagascar grains in the spotlight.
There is also and exceptional amount of ornamentation here- abalone rosette, inlaid 'M' on the headstock, and binding/purfling throughout.
Just incredible.
This McAlister is in very good overall condition- a few small marks from normal use.
The frets here are clean- set up with action of 3/32" at the 12th fret low E.
This auction includes the CWW hardshell case in pics.
​This is your chance to add a very special McAlister example to your collection.
Buy with confidence.
Don't pass this by.
