"This McConnell is my #1 guitar, I adore the voice. It has tons of beautiful, round bottom end, and the trebles are dense and musical so melodies are alive and enchanting. Aspects of Jordan's voicing reminds me of Somogyi, Traugott and Tippin, but it's all McConnell. This instrument can do everything, low tunings, fingerpicking, strumming, flatpicking. I find it inspiring and I play it every single day. " - Paul Heumiller
