: I am a beginner. I recently took my Strat to Mr. McCormick to have it "setup" properly. Mac performed the work while I waited and absolutely refused any payment. That is so rare these days. He even promised to show me the correct way to string my guitar. I looked around his shop and the instruments that I saw where works of art. He is a true craftsman.

About 10 years ago, I found the sweetest 6-string Accoustic guitar ever, and it was made by F.J. "Mac" McCormick. I've tried to find him ever since, so I might get a 12-string. Do you think this is the same guy?

Re: Mac McCormick

It is the same guy. I've known Mac for 30 years. He has built conversion banjo necks for my 1928 TB-3 Mastertone and 1927 Granada banjos. About 3 years ago I had him build me a flat-top dreadnought guitar. It has mellowed into the best sounding guitar I have ever played.

I'm sure he would build you a great 12-string.

Yes. I just left his shop 1 hour ago, 6-2-2005. His phone no. is 706-327-8508.
