Jerry McCann

Jerry McCann Custom Cutaway

I met Jerry McCann early in my musical journey in northern California. He had a trio called “Show of Hands” and I recorded an original tune on their album. I then lost track of Jerry for about 30 years and when we got back in touch he asked me to make a guitar for him.

Jerry is a fantastic musician and he is at home on an electric or acoustic guitar. Jerry is one of the few players who can use the entire fingerboard on an acoustic. I built him a large body cutaway style with Brazilian rosewood and an Adirondack spruce top. He also asked me to make an “M” shaped bridge and inlays. Jerry uses this guitar for all his solo gigs, songwriting and recording.

These days Jerry works in the San Diego area; check out his website: for some samples of his great music.
