One of the most beautiful woods on earth. Simply magnificent tonally and visually, this is the traditional favorite with good reason. This guitar is well suited for the experienced player or collector wanting the best sound paired with the most beautiful aesthetic.
Our old harvested Brazilian Rosewood is visually unique, giving each set a look that is all its' own. The dark rich look of this Rosewood often has streaks of pinks and greens in it, along with splashes of figure. Under finish, there is no mistaking Brazilian rosewood from any other wood.
Each Connor guitar is set up to optimize the benefits of the instrument. The sound portal in this guitar will give the player a unique playing experience, as you are immersed in the music in a way unlike any other instrument. This has been paired with our unique bracing pattern which gives these instruments power, clarity and sustain unlike any other. Furthermore, we add details to each of our instruments like a lightly radiused fingerboard, precise string spacing and height, to make them remarkably easy to play. An optional elevated fingerboard may be added which allows greater access to the higher register.
The Brazilian Rosewood model is meticulously crafted and optimized to have a warm but accurate sound which rings like a bell. The hard rosewood sides optimize the clarity and sustain in these instruments and make them a breathtaking experience to behold and to play. This wood, coupled with Master grade Spruce or Cedar, will create a powerhouse of an instrument that also can speak and sing in many voices. Some soft, some clear, and some dark and powerful.

"For me your guitars are the best that I have ever heard. The sound in both my instruments is fabulous for baroque, flamenco, and all Spanish classical music. It is warm, present, and recalls the sound of the Oud and the Lute. It is also sweet and brilliant, ideal for works of composer such as Albeniz"
