The MG60 is beautiful and articulate yet understated, with clean lines and minimal decoration. This design language allows the AAA solid Sitka top to take center stage, shimmering under a flawless Shadowburst gloss.
Sonically, this guitar is everything you would expect from an all-solid Grand Auditorium body. It has been designed to achieve an open projection, instant response and broad tonal palette. Bass frequencies are clear and defined, and the marriage of Sitka and mahogany deliver strong woody mids, and the Grand Auditorium body helps to accentuate the sparkling trebles.
The MG60 is fitted with the LR Baggs HiFi system. HiFi™ pairs dual bridge plate sensors with high-fidelity electronics, providing exceptional balance, definition, dynamics, and grod feedback resistance. The lightweight pickups preserve the integrity of your instrument’s bridge plate without negatively altering your acoustic tone. HiFi’s built-in, studio-quality preamp is voiced to complement the pickups for an optimal plug-and-play experience.
Making a guitar from all-solid wood delivers strong tonal benefits, and we approach the design of Masterworks to embrace all of them. Top thickness, brace weight and tapering, back design and wood choice all count, and when each is considered as a part of the sum total of the instrument’s voice, great articulation and quality of tone is achieved.
Our FS6 bracing system is a forward-shifted, scalloped X allowing for a slightly larger soundboard area around the bridge. This helps generate more vibration, which is heightened by AAA soundboards and premium components throughout, culminating in powerful voicing, inspiring articulation and instant response.
Masterworks acoustic-electric models are fitted with the LR Baggs HiFi system. HiFi is a premium, non-invasive design that pairs dual bridge plate sensors with high-fidelity electronics, providing exceptional balance, definition and dynamics. Due to the closed sensor design, HiFi also has excellent feedback resistance and its built-in, studio-quality preamp is voiced to compliment the pickups for an optimal plug-and-play experience.
All Masterworks ship with our durable AFC30 Flexicase.
Artist Elite guitars strike the right balance between strength and vibration, crafting a voice to both inspire and give players “tools in the tone.” Alongside this approach to development lies our respect for sourcing, preparation and nurturing the wood we use to make our guitars. No matter how considered design may be, it can only be as good as the wood we use to realize them.
