Stephan Connor is one of the most sought-after luthiers in the US. His guitars are regularly played in concerts around the world by first class artists such as the Assad brothers, Eliot Fisk, Angel Romero, the Amadeus Guitar Duo, and many more. Stephan has specialized in building high quality concert classical guitars in 1994. He uses the absolute finest materials possible, in order to built instruments with robust projection while maintaining a beautiful, versatile voice. The aesthetic of his guitars is rooted in the Spanish tradition. However, his bracing patterns and other elements that control the sound, have evolved and are distinctly his own.
This guitar, in great condition, is built with a spruce top and Madagascar rosewood back and sides, which is a premium option in Stephan’s workshop. Deeply rooted in modern aesthetics, this guitar has everything a guitarist seeking comfort dreams of: a raised fingerboard, a 64 cm scale, a slight radius on the fingerboard and an additional soundport on the side, which can also be closed with a belonging cover. Finally, the bracing is a subtle combination of both fan-shaped and lattice bracing, offering volume and richness of sound.
As a guitarist, one feels supported and inspired by this guitar, as it offers a great feeling of freedom to the left hand, and shows a rich powerful sound. Moreover, the notes are both clear and crystalline, yet round with a very pleasant sustain. Its dynamic possibilities are extraordinary, and what an impressive volume it produces. A wide audience, professional guitarists as well as ambitious amateur players seeking for a guitar of the highest level will certainly be satisfied with this beautiful instrument.
