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...
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.
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.
I was looking for a non-dreadnought guitar to top off my acoustic collection, but I didn't want to spend a bundle. After doing a lot of online research into various names and models I went for the Tofino---partly on a hunch that it would be a great choice, and partly based on reviews and videos. In any case, I am thoroughly impressed by the tone, craftsmanship, appearance and playability. If I picked this up in a guitar shop with no prior knowledge of M+M instruments, I would venture a guess that this guitar was in the 2K price range. Instead, it was a fraction of that cost. This is a great instrument at a price that defies all appearance and expectation.
The Tom Rush Naked Lady
I got this guitar in November of 2013....it is still my all time favourite. I have not even bought another guitar since because I keep comparing them to my Lady! I do own five other various guitars from over the years that I still have but I always reach for my Lady every time. I will take one of the older guitars if I go travelling but for home, shows, or recording I only pick up my Lady. My daughter feels spoiled too since I have let her play on it she is no longer satisfied with her guitar haha. I like it so much that I might end up buying a second one when its in my budget after house renovations. I don't know if I will ever have a guitar again that I love as much as her....
I can't believe I waited so long to try a Mackenzie and Marr guitar after seeing that demo with O'Leary on Dragons Den in 2010.
Wonderful warm tone rings out loud and clear. Especially impressed with the strong bass notes. Easy and precise action. Finish is very impressive too. Just as advertised, this guitar plays and sounds like a more expensive instrument. As the tone has already started to open up with playing I am looking forward to even better things to come.
I had the privilege to stop by the loft in Montreal and had the pleasure to meet John Mahr, I was also able to try out various models on hand and ended up purchasing a Dionisio. A cutaway with amazing tone and a very light fingering touch. I play it regularly and I usually bring it with me in my travels. When not playing it, it sits next to my Gibsons, Martins, Fender, etc.. Now I have my eye on a naked lady to add to my collection... I recommend M&M guitares to all my musician friends.
a really fine instrument can enable you to play better, and it's neat that the average listener can hear there's something special going on with this guitar. Very light, easy to play, sounds great recorded, holds tune well, the Baggs pickup system is the best I've had. A real treat to spend time playing it, I'd hate to be without it!
