Description

The guitars of Dermot McIlroy have become highly sought after and for good reason. They sound amazing, are well crafted, beautiful and easy to play. This high-end McIlroy A65 Figured Koa/Cedar has an angelic voice, articulate and open. Koa, known for being clear and woody, mixes well here with the Cedar top which adds warmth and depth.

The 15 3/4" body offers up plenty of bass but the fat, rich trebles ensure the melodies are easily heard. This is a Cedar top guitar that has a lot of power and headroom and can cover a lot of ground. It's in like new condition as well. Don't miss this hard-to-find McIlroy.

I'm a big fan of McIlroy guitars. Dermot really has a niche in crafting guitars that have a big, bold yet beautiful and sparkling voice. This A65, which features his select wood stash, has an amazing voice. I love the big bass, but the Koa keeps it in control. It recorded really well, which to me is a sign of a great guitar. It also plays super easy, you won't find a sweeter action. Treat yourself to this one, it's a catch.
