Details

"Bring your A-game to it and it will voice every detail with sonorous, expressive clarity." - Guitarist Magazine

Made for Irish guitar virtuoso Shane Hennessy, the McNally Shane Hennessy Signature OM sports a unique set of features that cater to the guitarist's percussive playing style. Guitarist Magazine recently awarded this guitar a 9/10, saying that it "responds to player input on so many levels" and is the "best intonated acoustic guitar we've played in a long time, possibly ever". That is an incredible nod to Ciaran McNally's skills as a luthier!

The combination of a Sitka spruce top with walnut back and sides creates an instrument that is extremely snappy and responsive, with a quick and dynamic attack. This is further enhanced by the extra bracing McNally adds to the soundboard to support Hennessy’s percussive playing. A key component in the development of Shane’s signature guitar is its Udo Roesner “Bracket” System pickup, which is a powerful under-saddle transducer with an internal side mounted floating microphone. 

These features, paired with its lacquered interior (for added travel stability), nitrocellulose finish, lightweight construction, and strengthened back and sides, make this guitar perfect not just for Shane, but for any fingerstyle-focused guitarist that likes to branch out into extended techniques.
