MacKenzie & Marr guitar owners' reviews

Please note: We publish all reviews exactly as they are submitted. Occasionally we may correct an obvious typo but that's it. The opinions you read are the owner's own words. Some of the earlier reviews mention long wait times for delivery. When the world first discovered MacKenzie & Marr Guitars we were flooded with orders. Backorder delays were common. Our production has now caught up with demand. Most guitars are in stock and can be delivered quickly. Current inventory and delivery times are on this page.

Gratitude Canada 150

Great looking and great playing guitar. I love the neck and the action is indeed like an electric. This doesn't sacrifice sound though. Very balanced, low, mid, and high!

I had the Anthem pickup installed as well. Since I play live with a full band, this is a must and unlike other pickups, the Anthem is true to the acoustic sound, giving a natural fullness.

Excellent product to showcase Canada 150!

Canada 150 #3 arrived....And I love it! Well made, fine finish, perfect intonation on all the frets and well balanced tone. Did I mention it is LOUD? It has a big booming sound like a Dreadnought, but better balanced between the highs and lows. I will be recommending MacKenzie and Marr to others. Thanks so much!

The Tom Rush Naked Lady

My Naked Lady arrived a few days ago, all I have to say is where has this geeetar been my whole life. OMG wow. I've played many high end guitars and this my friends tops them all. Bar none. Amazingly deep full sounding with lots of undertones, and clean note separation. Also the harmonics it produces are second to none!!!!
Great company to deal with too. Talked to John over the phone and he is very honest. I will b buying more from these guys for sure. Keep up the great work.

Well, all i gotta say is I am very impressed once again!!! Great bass, yet rings like bell. The neck feels alot like my less paul neck. Awesome volume. I stopped goin by the music store to try the Martins/Gibsons. LoL, these play as good and sound better!!! I will be recomending Mac&Marr guitars to everyone I hear looking for a new one. Great job.

Quite happy with it. Chords ring very loud, and the guitar is simply easier to play than others. It's a good looking guitar as well, and the hardshell case is clearly made for the guitar. Would recommend.

Tofino

My partner bought me a Tofino for my birthday and I love it! The fretboard is easy to maneuver..nice low action on the strings and the sound is unbelievable, compared to the other 6 acoustics I own. Thank-you Mackenzie and Marr for creating solid quality at a reasonable price!!

The Canadian Songwriter

I bought the Canadian Singwriter guitar for my beautiful wife for Christmas and cannot believe the amazing sound it has. For the price point you'd expect this guitar to be upwards of $2500. Although it doesn't have booming lows it does have everything else and I'd imagine as it opens up you'd be hearing more and more lows as this amazing guitar ages. Thank goddess it's Canadian made. If this guitar doesn't become the next big thing out of Canada then we're living in an alternate universe...

Opeongo OO

I love the blues and enjoy playing and learning as much as I can. The Opeongo is wonderful guitar for my passion, with a sweet sound, easy to play and beautifully crafted. I own two, which is a long story, one stays at home and the other goes to sea with me. It's size makes it easier to carry and store onboard. If you're a fan of acoustic Blues you should check out this guitar. It has that sound.

Opeongo OO

I have received my "long waiting for" Opeongo Guitar. While I am only a beginner player at 86 yearrs of age; (and already own 5 other quality guitars) ... I have to place my" Opeongo", as the most beautiful craftsmanship, and quality of sound guitar in my collection. My level of ability is low, (but improving) but my appreciation of quality is high. Thank you for your excellence of workmanship !

The Tom Rush Signature Dreadnought

The guitar is great. Ever since buying her, I've neglected all of my others. I recently took it to a get-together, and all of my guitar colleagues couldn't stop raving about the quality of the sound and feel of the guitar, comparing her to Martin's products. Booming bass, great feel, holds the tone nicely. I highly recommend investing in this one of a kind signature dreadnought.

An Important Note Regarding Porch Pirates

When we ship a guitar we always send it with instructions to the courier that a signature MUST obtained at the time of delivery. If no one is home to sign for the carton it will not be left. We do this to insure that your guitar does not fall into the hands of porch pirates (or other nefarious characters such as bass players or drummers).
