Todd C from Frederick writes:I've been watching Mackenzie & Marr for quite some time, enjoying the website videos. Owning too many acoustic guitars, another purchase didn't seem prudent. However, I have begun to get serious about recording my original songs, so for the past 8-10 months I have been slowly building a catalog of recordings using several of my 6-string acoustics. Discussing arrangements with my producer, we decided that having a 12-string on some of the songs would be a good idea, so I purchased an older Alarez-Yairi 12-string. The guitar is fine, but playability is typical 'fight you' 12-string, making the playing experience difficult. After checking the Mackenzie & Marr website, as I do periodically, I discovered that the 12-string Algonquin had finally been released and was in-stock, so I hit the 'Buy' button. Although I haven't had as much playing time using the Algonquin as I'd like, I have been pleased with not only the fit & finish, but also the sound (full & rich). The guitar is has a beautiful small jumbo outline and wood selection is right-on. The most important part is playability - it is excellent ! So, am I satisfied, definitely 'YES'. I'll be doing an online video review of the guitar in the future so stay tuned. Thanks to John and the Mackenzie & Marr crew.
