McPherson Guitars Employs SolidWorks to Create Unique Design of Acoustic Guitars Played by Grammy-Award Winning Musicians










Menomonee Falls, WI (PRWEB) January 5, 2005

Leading SolidWorks reseller Graphics Systems Corporation (GXSC), headquartered in Menomonee Falls, WI is pleased to announce McPherson Guitars of Sparta, WI is the latest “Spotlight Customer” featured on their website http://www.gxsc.com. Each quarter, Graphics Systems highlights a different customer to share their experiences in using SolidWorks 3D CAD software and its solution partner products.

McPherson Guitars designs and builds acoustic guitars that produce a range and depth of sound that no other guitar can create. Innovations such as their signature offset sound hole, state-of-the-art laminated bracing system, and cantilever “floating” neck design contribute to this. This unique design is the reason McPherson is the guitar of choice for Grammy award winning musicians Vince Gill, Steven Curtis Chapman and other discerning artists like Paul Overstreet and Amy Grant.

Programmer Dean Johnson uses SolidWorks to design specific fixtures and individual parts for the production of the guitars. McPherson Guitars began using SolidWorks after realizing that their previous software lacked capabilities critical to their needs. The company bought SolidWorks from Graphics Systems and is extremely pleased with the post-sales service. “They provide excellent tech support and the teachers in the classroom add the finishing touches to a great product!” attests Johnson.
