Northwood M70-OOO

  • Please note—this guitar arrived late in our moving sale, so I didn't have time to take a photograph of this particular one. It's as beautiful as the one pictured here.

    Sometimes I feel like John McQuarrie's OOO guitars are kind of a stealth product around here—his MJs get all the press (and for good reason), while a steady parade of custom OOOs come in and out of the shop without getting videos or official listings. So, to make sure that oversight was remedied, I finally got around to ordering one to hang on the wall.

    And what a guitar! In some ways, this is like playing a slightly smaller version of our top-selling mahogany MJ; it really is very similar. But this smaller body seems to brighten up the whole sonic profile just a bit, adding some really sweet ring in the upper mids and highs, making this a truly great all-rounder. Throw in that great Northwood neck and an understated, woody aesthetic, and you have a killer guitar. I recommend it without reservation.

Northwood M70-000

The quality, workmanship, and attention to detail on this guitar is amazing! Beautifully crafted, yet in a wonderfully simple design. The bass response is full and rich, while the trebles are well balanced and ring out forever. Another point I love is how light weight it is - weighs in at barely over 3.5 pounds all with a very comfortable body size. Northwood guitars present a stiff competition to boutique guitars twice their price.

This is an outstanding guitar -- beautiful to look at with incredible tone and sustain. This Northwood is very comfortable to play and is hard to put down. I love Northwood guitars -- exceptional build quality, aesthetics, and value! Also, the service and support from Shoreline Music are superb. You can purchase a Northwood from Shoreline with complete confidence that you are getting a fabulous instrument. I could not be happier with my M70-OOO.
