McIlroy A36C

  • As you no doubt know, the McIlroy A30C is one of our best selling guitars, and for great reason. But over at McIlroy Musical Instruments, their best selling spruce-topped guitar is the A36C you see here—Dermot says this is most of what folks are ordering these days.

    So, needless to say, I knew I had to get one in my inventory (I've sold a bunch as customs over the years). I'd say the main difference is that the Italian Spruce softens the attack just a bit, making this just a hair more responsive to a light touch, almost like a cedar top. But it maintains the high headroom of a Spruce-topped McIlroy. What more could you ask for?

This is a quality crafted instrument that feels as though I had custom ordered it. Thanks Shoreline for putting one in my hands. For me, it's perfect.

Happy buyer of a MciLroy A30c

I have not done any of these reviews before so bare with me. I have been actively looking for an Irish-style guitar for finger-style open tunings. Its a very light well-build responsive guitar; everything I thought my Lowdens should have been. More to come...
