For as long as we've been selling handcrafted acoustic guitars (which as you no doubt know is not very long at all), we've been asked to produce an acoustic with a cutaway body. Dionisio is our answer to that request. Introduced shortly after our launch in 2010, it has quickly become a sought after model.

Dionisio features include:

  • AAA grade solid Canadian Red Cedar top
  • Solid quilted African Mahogany (Khaya Ivorinsis) B/S
  • Rosewood fretboard
  • Bass High bridge
  • Archtop hardshell case
  • 18:1 high ratio gold Grover Rotomatic tuning machines
  • 2nd Strap button at the heel of the neck.

As with all MacKenzie & Marr Guitars, Dionisio comes with a limited lifetime warranty against any manufacturing and/or material defects. our 7 Day Love It or Leave It Guarantee (try any of our guitars in the comfort of your own home for a week and if, for any reason, you don't fall in love we'll take it back - no questions asked)

Received my Dionisio yesterday and thanks to the marketing "hype" my expectations bar was set very high. I own a Martin and two Taylors (among others) and I expected this to be at least in that neighborhood. What I didn't expect was for it to be the Mayor of the neighborhood. This surpasses my Taylors in playability, tone, and most certainly in looks. It's a tie with my Martin except for looks, which the Dionisio wins hands down. The fit and finish is perfect. Intonation - perfect. Tone - well, it's a cedar top, very sensitive, very responsive, more so than spruce, so you have to "lay off" of it a bit, don't overdrive it, let the guitar do the work and it's scary good! I think the most impressive thing for me is the playability. The nut is just a hair smaller than the other instruments mentioned (1 11/16" vs. 1 3/4") but the shape of the neck is...I don't know..."better", although I know that's a personal preference thing. By the way, I put the word "hype" in quotes at the beginning of this on purpose. Because it's not. Hype that is. It's not hype. It's facts. This guitar is 5 stars across the board at twice this price. So yeah...I guess I'm keeping it. Anybody wanna buy a Taylor 324CE?

I have been playing for about 50yrs. and I am as excited now as I was when I first started! I was in the market for a high end acoustic for quite awhile and played many of the brands over $5,000. I stumbled across MacKenzie and Marr some time ago and did my research. All of the videos and reviews said "go for it" and I did. The seven day love it or return tipped the scale. Just to let you know, you can't have it back! It came set up nicely right out of the box. I put the battery in the Baggs, tuned it up and took off. It plays and sounds great and the workmanship is really amazing. I find this every bit as good as the guitars costing five times as much and recommend them to anyone looking for a high quality instrument.

Tout simplement, incroyable! Une construction impeccable. Le choix des bois comme sur les meilleures guitares. M&M connait vraiment la recette pour produire une bonne guitare. Et à ce prix, tout simplement incroyable. Le son de cette guitare est tout simplement fantastique. J'ai confiance que le son va encore s'améliorer avec le temps.À date je ne trouve aucun défaut. Merci Mac and Marr!

I received my guitar on Friday. You are not getting this one back, all I have been saying is wow, if I were to be super critical there's nothing, and I mean nothing that I can say about this guitar. From the sound of the cedar to the mahogany sides and back from top to bottom it is flawless and I just love the sound, I could go on and on .

I just love that guitar. From the sound, to the playability and the esthetics, everything is just perfect. It plays better than a lot of guitars worth twice the price. Also, I received my order within 24 hours after ordering, which was a pleasant surprise. Keep up the good work !

This is a nice, quality guitar! I have over twenty from min range to Martin D28 and Taylor 414c. It compares favorably to the Taylor. Action is nice up and down the neck. I’d buy another in a heartbeat! Excellent customer service as well. Keep up the good work.

I am very pleased with my new Dionisio X. The purchase went smoothly from order to delivery. I was kept informed of the progress until the guitar had been delivered to my door. The guitar was packaged securely and arrived with no signs of damage to the outer box. The case and the guitar were in perfect condition and a beautiful sight to behold. The finish is flawless and each wood is like a display on itsa own, showcasing the beautiful grains. I love the way it feels in my hands. It felt so natural the first time I picked it up. It has a sweet mellow tone with a surprising amount of sound projection. I didn't get the electronic addition and do not regret it. If I played with other musicians I would have added it but for myself, the guitar is more than enough. I do appreciate the quality of materials and workmanship that went into the creation of this fine instrument. I would not hesitate to buy another Mackenzie and Marr instrument. They delivered on everything they said they would. Each time I pick it up to play I am so pleased I bought this beautiful instrument.

I believe this may be the best acoustic guitar on the market at any price. It’s simply a beautiful instrument. I could not find even one small imperfection in the finish, it’s flawless. Thou I am not a professional player, it fits me perfectly and sounds absolutely fantastic. Case is very nice also. My only gripe was I thought when I bought it was made in the USA, and not in China. But that is a minor concern now as I love it. I have a Seagull, Taylor, Dean, and Epiphone Master built Texan and it’s my favorite go to guitar. I love cedar top instruments. GO BUY ONE
