We have the chance to have regularly some ‘brand new’ preowned Professional Serie guitars from the Irish luthier Michael & Alec O’Leary. This N° 224 has as valuable upgrades such as the armrest, an elevated fingerboard, Rodgers tuners and a tailored made dar blue Karura flight case. Each I receive a new O’Leary I keep saying that the new one is better than the last one. That is simply because the sound of the O’Leary guitars is unique, so musical and so beautiful. Close to new condition for this Profesional Serie top-of-the-line guitar. The perfect balance between traditional and modernity. The sound and the playability is amazing. The video review by Philippe will be available mid November. To keep you waiting you will find some sound clip and the video of Sharon Isbin and Berta Rojas playing their O’Leary guitars.
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 colors out of the guitar. The basses are deep, The notes are creamy and thick. Last but not least the Exotic Ebony 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, Sharon Isbin, Sergio Assad, David Russell (owns one), Marco Socias, Eleftheria Kotzia, Elena Zucchini. Loud and beautiful with a wonderful color 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 the first guitar a long time ago. This third guitar is from the Professional series the best one and offers wonderful craftsmanship with very impressive Exotic Ebony 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.
