From the moment you strum the first chord on this instrument, it becomes apparent that this guitar is in a league of it's own. Open chords sound like a grand piano, and that's hardly exaggeration! Jordan McConnell is a master luthier and has a knack for designing what could only be described as an absolute museum piece with the sonic range and tonality of some of the world's finest instruments. Despite the OM body, the low end of this instrument is rich and blooms enough to fill an entire room. Note definition and clarity is absolutely unmatched - in complex runs, every single note has it's own space, and nothing gets lost in the mix. The treble is pleasant and vocal in nature; there's no thin quality to the highs that so often plagues acoustic instruments.
Visually, this guitar is hypnotically stunning. The rare and prized snakewood has been used for the accents - heel, face plate, buttons, fretboard, bridge, etc - and the back and sides are carved from old growth Brazilian Rosewood (becoming increasingly difficult to find!). With a premium German Spruce top to tie everything together, these exotic tonewoods pair unlike any other build we have ever come across. This is a one-off, lifetime instrument that would normally require a 3-year waiting period. We are simply thrilled to have a McConnell masterpiece at our store!
In EXCELLENT condition with light pick marks under the sound hole. Please take a look at the HD photos below to get a better look at this stunning piece of artistry. Comes
