Description

Whoever said Koa doesn't have depth and power hasn't played this A69c Custom McIlroy. Not only does this all-Koa guitar pack some serious heft into the voice with a quick and lively string energy, but it manages to do so while looking good at the same time. Sycamore bindings plus Abalone rosette, top trim, and position markers are an excellent complement to the figured Koa, and the pinless bridge ties it all together. Additionally, this A69c has the added distinction of being McIlroy's 1200th guitar--no small feat. If you want lots of power in an easy-playing package, it's hard to go wrong with this 2019 A69c.

Dermot McIlroy worked for years with George Lowden, and now creates a wonderful version of the Irish guitar. This is the first one I've seen in all Koa and it is absolutely stunning. Brilliant and clear, equally adept at playing solo fingerstyle music or being strummed in a group setting.
 
This one really grabbed me with its depth, string energy, and the added expansive quality of the lower mids. The result is a full-sounding guitar with headroom for heavier attack, but also responsive for a lighter fingerstyle touch.
