Madagascar Rosewood Model  

The Madagascar Rosewood guitar offers the best of both worlds in playability, aesthetics and value. A great choice for the advanced student or performer looking for something visually distinct with a warm, robust sound.

I have stockpiled an amazing collection of this now rare tonewood. All of it has an incredible look. Strong contrasting stripes of black, brown and orange, intermixed with spider web patterns and other figure, make these guitars amazing to view. Each instrument is crafted with meticulous attention to detail so that the end result is amazing to behold and to play.

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 Madagascar Rosewood model is known not only for its wild, dramatic appearance but also for it's warm, romantic tone. Torres would surely have built with this wood if it was available to himů

"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"
