  4. McGill Tommy Jones Classic (1999, Exc+++) [Paul McGill, Nashville, TN] An usual (and great sounding) older classic guitar from Paul McGill. According to Paul, the back and sides for this guitar are from Central American (possibly Nicaraguan) Rosewood, and the top is made of old-growth German (center) and Cedar (wings); traditional rosette; Ebony nut; slotted peghead with Rosewood overlay; traditional bridge with individual RMC pickups. This is number three of the Tommy Jones models (only three were made) featuring the unusual combination of top woods. If I am remembering correctly, we (Cotten Music) sold the first of the three guitars in this series (although it might have been a prototype--it was Tommy Jones' own guitar) several years ago. The guitar offers beautiful tone throughout, with clarity and good depth. The action is good, as is the overall volume. Can't really tell you what the mark is (it's obvious it's in the wood) on the upper treble side, but it's of no consequence to the sound of the guitar. The guitar comes with a soft-side McGill case. $6500
