2018 McIlroy ASD30 – £2299

SOLD  22 years after leaving Lowden, Dermot McIlroy has made his own name as a highly regarded British luthier, making some of the finest hand made acoustic guitars around. The ASD30 is quite an unusual model. It retains the same dimensions as his very popular AS model, but with the traditional shallow dreadnought waist, and slope shoulders – what this does to the tone is add bass response. McIlroy calls it his small dreadnought. This model features a Spruce top with Rosewood back and sides. with Ebony fingerboard and bridge. The pearwood binding, Abalone rosette, and 12 fret fingerboard inlay add a touch of class. The guitar has a full sound, quite punchy and resonant, with good balance and long sustain. It’s in excellent condition, with great playability, and has a K and K mic system fitted. It comes in it’s original Hiscox hard case.
