"The fit and finish of a McPherson guitar is unsurpassed. It does not look, feel, play, or sound quite like any other guitar. But this Manhattan Skyline model is exceptional even by the standards set at McPherson.
The late Stan Jay was known for his preference for traditional fretted instruments. But he absolutely loved McPherson’s guitars, above and beyond any other modern innovator of progressive luthiery, and he proudly bought a fine example for his very own. Stan ordered this Manhattan Skyline guitar to sell, among many other McPhersons. But he did not live to see it completed." - T. Spoon Phillips at One Man's Guitar
