Description

NOT FOR SALE: This McConnell 16 Inch guitar, dubbed 'The Winding Road', was custom built for Dream Guitars owner Paul Heumiller. It is crafted from premium old-growth Brazilian Rosewood and topped with Moon Spruce, which is spruce harvested at the phase of the moon when the sap is least active in accordance with a century-old tradition(see more here, http://www.best-eurospruce.com/4.html). A rare and special Spruce that sounds amazing. This guitar also has a solid Brazilian Rosewood neck for incredible sustain and feel. The multiscale layout is 26.25" on the bass and 25.5" on the treble, designed to excel in low tunings like C9, Open G and DADGAD. Paul also worked with artist Fian Arroyo(http://www.fian.com) and renown inlay artist Larry Robinson (http://robinsoninlays.com) for the custom fingerboard inlay inspired by the Blue Ridge Mountains and the European Alps where Paul frequently motorcycles. Lastly, the entire guitar is French Polished to allow every ounce of tone to be heard. Just listen to the video to see why Paul so loves his McConnell guitar. Now taking orders for McConnell guitars. Call us today!

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.
