2005 McKnight Mini Mac Carpathian and East Indian Rosewood

Tim McKnight, who founded McKnight Guitars in 1992, had honed his craft over many years while repairing instruments built by others. In the process, he came to appreciate the elegance of guitar designs that work—and learned a great deal from those that didn’t. This invaluable experience provided him with the perfect environment in which to develop a desired style of fine custom guitars, artfully blending tradition with innovation to achieve a new level of excellence. Tim masterfully crafts his custom guitars to produce tone that inspires the heart and touches the soul. He builds each McKnight guitar with equal measures of hard-earned expertise, unique innovation, passion and soul. The results are heirloom instruments of sweeping beauty, unequaled power, projection … and, most importantly, tone. This 2005 McKnight Mini Mac is gorgeously appointed with a Carpathian top and East Indian Rosewood back and sides. The Cocobolo bindings pull the package together into an instrument as pleasing to look at as is to play. Carpathian is similar to German Spruce, bringing a wonderful resonance and response with a slightly brighter sound. When combined with the East Indian Rosewood back and sides, it produces a lush low end that is clear and powerful. This guitar really shines, with a surprisingly loud voice and impeccable clarity. And, if you have not played a guitar with an extra sound port on the side it will pleasantly surprise you.

This guitar is in excellent condition with only a few minor scratches, very slight delamination of the finish in two spots - one on the upper and another on the lower bout of the back. There is also a separation of the nut from the fretboard. This wear can be seen in the detailed photos below. It has very minor fretwear and includes the original hardshell case.
