Built in 2015 by MIchael O’Leary exclusively for order, this guitar is in a near new condition. Just a few small polish finger nail marks near the sound hole, which you will really only see on very close inspection.
This is the first opportunity we have had to try one of Michael’s fine concert guitars and we can tell you now, we were expecting the highest quality from this traditional/modern instrument and we were not let down. This is a concert guitar of excellence aimed at the advanced/professional player. A very loud, powerful guitar who’s dynamic range is commanded by the slightest adjustment of the player’s fingers. A guitar full of colour, warmth and trebles which are sweet and sustain is excellent. This is a guitar which will deliver any repertoire for the player.
Michael has delivered his guitars to the hands of many accomplished world players, such as Sharon Isbin, Berta Rojas, David Russell and John Feeley, to name a few.
