Incredible hand built quality! Terry C. McInturff has been building instruments for nearly 30 years and has built a reputation for delivering incredible performance, materials and attention to detail.  Incredible value as well for a handcrafted instrument. Terry spent several years in the Hamer Custom Shop, a brand well known by tone freaks everywhere. His years of experience combined with a great eye for detail means innovative guitars hand built to perform. Great features for the player and even greater craftsmanship for the eyes. If you're considering a Paul Reed Smith, Custom Shop Fender, Historic Gibson, or Hamer guitar, TCM's instruments warrant a serious look!

The Empress is a stripped down rocking machine.  Reminding me of a classic SG, this guitar is ready to rip. The body shape is designed for comfort as well as good looks.  An awesome instrument built utilizing the finest materials. The Polaris sports a mahogany body for incredible tone . The 25 1/8th inch scale mahogany neck features a 12 inch radius rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets and dot inlays. Dual Seymour Duncan Seth lover humbuckers dish out incredible PAF tone. A Tuneomatic bridge, Stopbar tailpiece and Grover tuners keep it rock solid. The finish is a gorgeous transparent cherry red that lends the guitar a vintage vibe. A great rock machine!

As you would expect from a guitar of this level, this TCM plays and sounds great. Straight neck, good frets and nice action. Excellent feel. The pickups are smooth with tons of PAF bite. A really nice guitar. This is a good used guitar for the player. It shows some normal wear but would be fine for most players. The finish shows light to moderate pick and clearcoat wear as well as moderate belt wear. A few dents and dings. Not a collector piece but fine for most players. Comes in original hardshell case.
McInturff guitars are hard to find. A real shame actually as they are incredible instruments that can blow away many other big brands. Great build quality and tone. A new one will cost you big bucks if you can find one in stock. Why save some loot and buy a used example?
