We've happily bought and sold many of Jordan McConnell's guitars over the years in addition to being his exclusive dealer, but this is the first time we've laid hands on a nylon string guitar from his shop. Naturally, Jordan didn't disappoint. This is his 2001 interpretation of the Segovia Hauser guitar, and is his first Classical build. Jordan employed a set of extra light-grained Indian Rosewood for the back and sides and topped the body with Engelmann Spruce (note the Cocobolo headstock veneer, rosette, and bridge), then added gold Schaller tuners and a bone nut and saddle to complete the package.

The sensitivity to voicing and tone that has made McConnell's steel strings so resonant and desirable translates faithfully to nylon strings as well: the voice is equal parts breathiness, smoothness, and balance. With just under two decades under its belt, this McConnell Classical has opened up sweetly, especially in the bass register where the notes are well-defined and quick. Playability, this guitar has in spades with a 650mm scale and 53mm nut. For a fresh take on one of the Classical guitar world's most iconic models from one of Canada's finest luthiers, look no further: the McConnell Hauser Segovia.

2001 McConnell Hauser Segovia Classical -  Classical Guitar Player Reviews

Player Reviews:

"It's exciting to see a steel string builder knock it out of the park on their first nylon string. The neck is slightly beefy and quite comfortable for my hands. Jordan doesn't build Classical too often, so this one's a pretty rare find." - Paul Heumiller
