Mcilroy / A57 Madagascar Rosewood Adirondack / Guitar For Sale

This Mcilroy A57 is a remarkable guitar, built by one of the most refined builders of the classic Celtic folk school, Dermot Mcilroy. Of course a very stylish guitar, but also one that stands out for its clarity and power, the beautiful overtones and above all the refinement of the sound. The top is made of Adirondack red spruce, the same famous tone-wood that was also found on the golden era Martin guitars from the 1930s. The back and sides are crafted from beautifully grained Madagascar Rosewood which contributes to full-bodied tone, adding depth and dynamics to the tone of the guitar. The finishing touch of Mcilroy guitars is very much refined, with figured Brazilian mahogany binding trimmed with maple and ebony inlays, the fingerboard is bound with rosewood matched with maple, the mahogany neck is five-piece and features a bound ebony fingerboard with - typical of guitars supplied through the Fellowship of Acoustics - features pearl Celtic Knot inlay at 12th position. The ebony bridge adds to the clarity of the tone and is beautifully shaped. The Gotoh 510 tuners with ebony buttons are not only stylish but are among the best working machine heads around these days. A mastermade fingerstyle guitar for those looking for a powerful but also versatile guitar. including Hiscox case.  Specifications Body Shape: A Finish: Natural Satin  Dimensions: Lower bout : 400 mm - 15 3/4" Depth        : 120 mm - 4 23/32" Body Material: Solid Madagscar Rosewood  Top Material: Solid Adirondack Spruce Handedness: Right Body Details: Rosewood binding, multiply trim & rosette w/ abalone core.

I have always been opposed to being trapped into a job eight hours a day to purchase the free time to do what I enjoy. That’s why i started the Fellowship of Acoustics. The fellowship of acoustics was founded by Rudi Bults, Guitarist and obsessed with tone and wood. The idea was offering real expertise when trading and selling the finest instruments in the world from our showroom in Bergentheim, Netherlands. Helping others find the right tools and enjoying an atmosphere that’s unhurried, honest and informative that’s my go. We are nothing like the "supermarket" style music stores, but specialize in string-things only. We are widely known for Flattop guitars but also sell electric, mandolins & banjo’s, amps, parts, and accessories. Our store has earned the reputation for being a great place to shop for the best products and service.
It is our hope that this new website - much more than a list of "gear" for sale - will serve as an example of our commitment to offering a more personal approach, a friendly atmosphere, and an ultimately more satisfying experience for our friends and customers.
If you have any questions just dial +31-523-232205 or e-mail My name is Rudi Bults, and I’m always here to help out. Wherever possible, we would recommend that you visit our store and experience our instruments and service first hand. However, because of our high standards you can be confident of ordering online from us. We hope you enjoy your visit to our site, and welcome your feedback.


We do speak English, Dutch and German! Feel free to call in any of these languages and ask your questions! Call 0031-523-232205
