The carefully selected Spruce top and Rosewood back and sides on this stunning Mcilroy AP30C Custom combine with some upgraded finishing touches and specifications. Includes a full custom set up service and Hiscox case. A full set of images and further information available on request.

Fresh in we are delighted to have just received this outstanding custom-built version Mcilroy AP30c guitar. it's always an exciting moment when unpacking one of Dermot's guitars, and especially so when its one of his custom-builds, so we couldn't wait to try this beauty out. This AP custom model has specially selected woods that includes a Sitka top and Rosewood back and sides, matched and chosen to compliment each other. Check out the upgraded Celtic knot inlay at the 12th fret and Rosewood front and back headstock veneer with high spec Gotoh 510 tuners. The AP body size offers an instrument with slightly reduced depth that works especially well when Rosewood and Sitka have been used. The results are astonishing, and perhaps this is the most versatile Mcilrroy we have ever played. It has all the traditional Celtic charm and magical bell like single note performance, but its reduced depth with tone wood choice helps produce a better all over balanced performance. We would say this is the perfect all-rounder Mcilroy guitar and will appeal to both flat pickers and finger style players. Its fantastic with or without a pick, and has a voice that offers the player a crescendo of clear harmonic content perfectly in balance with the strong clear fundamental note. If you are a fan of more individual highly rated hand crafted acoustic instruments you really need to look further into Dermot McIlroy designs, and if you get a chance try and check one of these wonderful AP30C models out.

Part of Mcilroys Performer series and featuring a slimmer body than its A30c sibling, this guitar delivers a balanced and dynamic tone in an endlessly comfortable package. Also featuring some upgrades such as Gotoh 510 Tuners, a headstock back veneer and a Celtic knot inlay.

As one of Europe's top guitar builders Dermot Mcilroy's guitars are in massive demand and its rare we ever have more than just a few in stock at the same time. We order as many as we can but the traditional painstaking meticulous craftsmanship that Dermot lavishes on every build ensures supply is very limited. We can help with any custom order enquires and look forward to any questions on either this range of guitars or our service.
