Paul McGill's nylon string guitars are something to behold: where stylish contemporary aesthetic meets excellent craftsmanship and a dedication to powerhouse tone, both acoustic and amplified. The 2013 Super Ace we have here today is practically mint, and is as loud and expressive as a fresh pot of coffee in the morning. Paul gives us the perfect guitar for gigging in the form of his Super Ace, with it's aggressive cutaway for two octaves' access, and this is one of the first guitars to feature McGill's new amplification system which combines Graph Tech individual saddle pickups with Paul's custom preamp that he's been designing for the past several years! By offering phase inversion for each string, Paul's system helps minimize feedback and maximize a balanced, organic amplified voice. That means that all the rich, focused tonality of the Bearclaw Sitka Spruce top, and the well-defined low-end from Bubinga back and sides, translate faithfully into the Super Ace's stage presence when amplified. Add to all of these acoustic advantages McGill's sense of style with Snakewood bindings, fretboard, and bridge, and the smooth operation of the Baljak tuners in gold and Snakewood, and you've got a instrument which looks as good as it sounds. See below for a link to McGill's website, where he explains his preamp in greater detail.



"Paul's got the touch, that's for sure: this baby is golden. We plugged it into several acoustic amps in the shop like the Acoustic Image Ten2, and I have to say, Paul's given us an excellent pickup-preamp combo. The slightly skinnier neck (for a nylon-string) is comfortable to fret, and the guitar felt natural in my lap."" - Paul Heumiller, Dream Guitars
