Description

An incredible find. This 2012 Stephen Connor Classical comes from no less a master than Odair Assad of the Assad brothers. Indian Rosewood back and sides with a Maple backstrip, Moonspruce top, and Stephen’s elevated fingerboard and sound portal come together for an exquisitely powerful and dynamic tone. The headstock has been upgraded with Rodgers tuners, and Stephen’s lattice-braced Moonspruce top features gorgeous bearclaw figure to boot. This Connor has been lovingly played in the past few years, and has the well-earned marks to prove it. In our eyes, this only reinforces the value of the instrument: it’s been played in to open up handsomely, and with an easy setup under your hands. A true concert guitar.

What a powerful instrument. It’s no wonder Stephen Connor has such a wonderful reputation. This one has clarity and beauty to spare, and the power rivals anything in the shop. I love it.
