“A similar size to the OM/000 guitars. This steel string guitar provides huge versatility, through volume, tonality and style of play.”
“Using a take on the X bracing system, the bracing which Sam has developed over years of research, knowledge and testing. Along with the choice of high quality tonewoods, the bracing is pivotal to the sound Sam creates from each guitar.This guitar is lightly built and responsive, meaning the guitar has huge versatility, both in volume and tonality, that the guitarist can control easily.This Steel string guitar can be made either with or without the cutaway.Each guitar is set up for the customer, before they take it away.”

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
