2001 McIlroy AJ30 – £2299

NEW ARRIVAL  After 10 years working for Lowden, in 2000 Dermot McIlroy set up his own production company, making some of the finest hand made acoustic guitars. This AJ30 is one of the most impressive modern guitars I’ve played in quite a while. The Sitka Spruce top, coupled with Indian Rosewood back and sides deliver clarity and sustain in equal measures. It works very well with fingerstyle play, well balanced and articulate, but also for strumming where the body size allows the air to move creating a big, dominant sound that never gets away from you, and when soloing the smoothness and clarity of single notes is very impressive. The guitar feels quite substantial and road ready, yet it’s the subtlety that’s surprising. It’s in excellent condition, with great playability, and comes in it’s original Hiscox hard case.
