A new dream guitar from the luthier Michael O’Leary !
We have the chance to have once a year a brand new guitar from the Irish luthier Michael O’Leary. This N° 219 is amazing even better than the 206 that we had last year. Here the musicality comes first : the guitar has not been made to be the loudest and even though the guitar is loud but to offer the nicest musical tones.
The main features are the sound quality with crystal-clear trebles, a long sustain and a great balance between clarity and warmness. One can get a lot of tone colours out of the guitar. The basses are deep, The notes are creamy and thick. Last but not least the Coccobolo is wonderful.
Alec and Michael O’Leary’s workshop is located near to Milford Carlow in the Irish countryside but their guitars are all over the world in the hands of famous players such as Bertas Rojas or Sharon Isbin. Loud and beautiful with a wonderful colour tone.
Being a fan of Bertas Rojas and Sharon Isbin, having a classical guitar from Alec and Michael O’Leary was simply compulsory for us. We ordered this guitar a long time ago and waiting until recently when the guitar arrived. This one is from the Professional series the best one and offers wonderful craftsmanship with very impressive Pau Ferro rosewood for the back and side. The playability of the guitar is great and the sound is incredible. The string separation is amazing and the guitar has just some fantastic medium which makes the guitar very balanced. The trebles are crystal clear.
I will position this guitar among the very best lattice guitars sharing the sound quality of a Simon Marty with but a little bit warmer.
Maybe the best lattice guitar from Europe.
