McIlroy AS46 Acoustic with Master-grade Italian Spruce / Premium Laurelwood. I purchased this unique & extremely wonderful, McIlroy AS46 new from a McIlroy dealer in 2022. Completion date on this custom build was 2/2022. It is in Mint or, let's call it, Mint-. It plays perfectly and is without flaw or issue. The neck plays wonderfully and the smaller size makes it a great go-everywhere guitar. This is a great example of what small-shop luthier-built guitars are like. The AS series is a small-jumbo but sized in-between a 00 and 000 - but a little deeper. Every aspect of this guitar is elegant. Just look at the understated inlays. Gorgeous.

IF IT'S HERE IT'S AVAILABLE. LOCAL/CASH ONLY SALE, NO SHIPPING. REPLY HEREIN TO SEE/PURCHASE. NO TEXTS.

This is another example of the world-class instruments coming out of Northern Ireland today. Dermot McIlroy is one of the best luthiers working today and he's making guitars that ring clearly and play wonderfully. Here's a chance at one of his, one-of-a-kind, gems. McIlroy only builds +/- 40 guitars a year so getting one new is tough but here's one, like new, that is unique and wonderful. When I purchased this I was looking for the best smaller-bodied guitar and the dealer directed me to this. It is the best sounding 00-sized guitar I've ever played. You can see that I ship quickly and have perfect reviews. Treat yourself, or someone else, with this wonderful guitar. This guitar is as spotless as when I purchased it. Like new condition with no sign of wear.

"McIlroy Guitars, a familiar name in the guitar world, started business in a factory unit on the outskirts of Antrim town in 2000. From very humble beginnings and with a little help from the government agency LEDU and some personal investment, they have gone on to become one of the highest regarded guitar makers in the world."

Although a little smaller than a 000, it is louder than most 000's I've owned. The guitar is a more manageable size for sitting and great for someone wanting a big sound from a smaller guitar. This is another example of the first-rate custom guitars coming out of Northern Ireland. The guitar has a clear, bell-like tone that is articulate and sweet. Finger-style players will love the immediate response but it handles pick and strumming great. If you are familiar with the world-class luthiery coming out of Northern Ireland, you are familiar with McIlroy guitars and their excellence. If not, you should get familiar with the quality coming out of Dermot's shop. The only issue with McIlroy is that he can't make guitars fast enough. Here's your chance now.

This guitar has a Master Grade Italian Spruce top and a Premium Laurelwood set for the back and sides. It was Dermot McIlroy's first AS-46 and it is fantastic. I am selling because I've got to downsize a little. The AS-46 is rich and resonant and is the finest small-bodied guitar I've ever played, or owned.
