Steve Connor 2018 Spruce Maple #372 April

Comments:

This guitar was sent to me by a good client who has (for some reason) decided to let go of his beautiful collection of guitars.  This is a very new and recent Connor guitar, unplayed.

She’s so very pretty.  The Striped Maple is superb, the separating band of the back is sublime, the Spruce top is marbled and bear clawed, and the Custom Alessis with MOP (stamped Connor) simply finish her off exquisitely.  Natural taper to the body, she’s fat bottomed at 4 3/8″, but the tapering allows for a comfortable elevation to the fretboard.  His workmanship is stellar.  This guitar evidences all of Stephan’s upgrades possible regarding one of his classical guitars.

Inspection within reveals his Signature stamping, also the #372 with the name of the guitar “April” and his quick signature all written on the inside of the soundboard.

The guitar is ridiculously good.  Powerful and then intimate, singing and pushing.  I could play this guitar all day and lose the time happily.

She has a port cover as well.  I wouldn’t use it, but someone might like it?

Steve has a 3+ year waiting list.   This guitar is immediately available via my gallery.

Media

Listening with high quality headphones or audio equipment is highly recommended including EQ manipulation, if possible. We record everything flat with just a touch of Reverb to relieve dryness. My goal is to record the guitar as realistically as is possible. I speak in the recordings, my thoughts about the guitar (and possibly other things?).  My speaking also serves to give you my first impressions and to also give you a balance of the engineering (or lack thereof) versus the sound of the guitar.  I simply do not have time to engineer much of anything.  Thanks. Rich
