Description

We already knew that Jordan McConnell was one of the finest acoustic guitar makers alive, so Dream Guitars was pretty stoked when we found something new show up at our door. Instead of one of his SJs, we found not one but two electric guitars from the man himself--looking dressed up for Sunday dinner with Jordan's eye for detail and curving headstocks--waiting patiently to be plugged in and cranked up.


This one, s/n E007, was originally built to Paul's specs, so of course this McConnell has a multiscale fingerboard (26" on the bass, 25" on the treble), Wenge neck, back, sides, and trim, Bearclaw Sitka Spruce top, and split McNelly humbuckers. Both guitars feature Jordan's distinctive neck profile, as well as dual arm and rib bevels. Strung with heavier strings, this electric can cruise down to C or D tunings with ease and the bass notes remain growly and present. With the split coil McNelly pickups, you have a wide range of pickup options to create an entire host of different tones from Rock to Blues, but this baby sounds particularly impressive for fingerstyle Jazz.


Add to that a fancy tailpiece with a hidden mechanism for accessing the string compartment, a Satinwood backstrap on the headstock, and an Ameritage case, and you've got one of the classiest rockin' electrics in your hands. Available now!


Here's an additional demo with our own Al Pettewayhttps://youtu.be/Morwiyfkskg

I had a blast working with Jordan to get the specs of this guitar in order. The results are even more beautiful and rich than I'd imagined! I'm particularly impressed by the McNelly humbuckers, which have an airy voice that's great for fingerstyle music, and the fact that they're split means I can get a single coil sound that isn't rough or attenuated, and since each pickup can be split indepenendently, you can almost play this guitar for an acoustic gig, so rich and balanced is the voice.
 
This gorgeous sunburst electric multiscale can satisfy the most demanding of guitarists. Its neck feels very much like the finest acoustic guitar imaginable, yet the Wenge-covered pickups and the floating bridge make it equally suited for jazz, blues, or rock styles. I love it.
