“Among guitar makers, Steve is unique as well in his ability to listen to and work with guitar players to improve upon his already stellar achievements. He is one of the most modest yet most searching makers known to me. His passion for guitar making only drives him to constantly want to surpass himself. It is a pleasure to declare publicly my great admiration for Stephan Connor's work as well as my great affection for him as a person” - Eliot Fisk
Since 1994 I have specialized in building concert quality Classical guitars, using the absolute finest materials possible, to make instruments that have robust projection while maintaining a beautiful, versatile voice. The aesthetic of my guitars is rooted in the Spanish tradition. However my bracing patterns and the other elements that control the sound, have evolved and are distinctly my own. I love my work and strive to create inspired instruments which allow the player to enjoy a beautiful musical experience and have ample projection for the concert hall. I have been thrilled with how well my instruments have been received by the guitar community and am proud to have many of the finest classical guitarists playing my guitars. I build approx. 18 instruments a year, at my workshop on Cape Cod, Mass. If you are in the area , you are welcome to set up a time to visit.
