Ernesto Tamayo orders Brazilian Rosewood Connor Guitar. Ernesto will be recording a new CD of his own compositions on his Connor Guitar later this year.
New Player: David Tanenbaum. David Tanenbaum just acquired a pioneering prototype Connor guitar which features an adjustable neck with a floating elevated fingerboard. David Tanenbaum is recognized as one of today’s most eloquent proponents of new guitar repertoire and is one of the most admired classical guitarists of his generation.
Legendary Flamenco guitarist Juan Martin has just ordered a Spanish Cypress Flamenco guitar. The guitar will be equipped with Fustero tuning machines and large golpeadore plates to protect the soundboard from the percussive techniques used in his Rumbas. He has requested our rosette design featuring a rose motif as well as the sound portal. It is a great honor to build for him and the guitar will hopefully garner much visibility in the International Flamenco scene. I hope you enjoy this Youtube video of his fantastic playing.
Russell Cleveland has received a Connor guitar for his collection. The Russell Cleveland Collection is featured in "The Classical Guitar a Complete History". It is certainly one of the finest collections of classical guitars in the world, featuring guitars from Torres to the present. We are honored to have our guitars represented in his collection.
