“This Lacote model, is a copy of a late 1830’s design by the French maker.”
“The guitar features the iconic shape, bridge as well as the traditional ladder bracing, that is on the original Lacote guitars.Albeit a very small guitar, it does have a lot of volume, and is the perfect instrument for someone who wants to match their sound to the music of that period.The shorter scale length (compared to more modern classical guitars) makes stretches on the fingerboard a lot easier. Despite the aesthetics, this guitar has a more modern feel to the fingerboard and neck than the originals, making it easier to switch between a Concert Classical guitar and this Lacote guitar..”

Artists Grow with a

I am the very proud owner of a McClaren guitar and I couldn't be happier with how it performs on stage. I have taken it on a number of tours around the UK and I am constantly getting people come up to me after the shows asking for more information about the guitar - the sound it produces in a live setting is absolutely brilliant and it's made soundchecking a breeze! Working with Sam was a pleasure too. Guitars are such a personal thing and getting a new one can be nerve-wracking when it's your living, but Sam is such a talented craftsman and pours so much passion into his work - he communicated with me throughout the process and really understood what I wanted. Couldn't recommend him and his beautiful instruments more highly.

McClaren Guitars are undoubtably, the best! I've been using them for years. Owning a S-16 for Studio and a Performance series for Live shows. I truly don't think there is a better option than a McClaren Guitar. Proper guitars, for proper musicians!

My Goal is to make guitars that Artists swear by. Guitars that are astounding in quality, but will also never let you down
