USA $.10000 Connor Spruce 2012, Milwaukee
- Type / luthier: (classical, flamenco, lute, baroque, romantic): classical guitar by Stephan Connor
- Year of construction: 2012
- Scale length (mm): 650
- Top: Lunar harvested master grade european spruce
- Back / Sides: Indian rosewood with maple strip
- Fingerboard / (bridge): ebony
- Sound: loud, mid range, warm
- Condition: good
- Price: $10,000

This guitar was made for Sérgio and Odair Assad, and owned by Odair Assad. I bought it directly from them. Its sound is large and booming, with lots of mid range, huge color variation across the strings. It has an elevated fretboard and Gotoh tuners. The Lunar Harvested soundboard is gorgeous and one-of-a-kind. It is clear that Stephan Connor put extra thought into this magnificent instrument for the Duo Assad.

Has some minor dings here and there on the soundboard and neck (most of them there from before I purchased from the Assad Brothers), but overall was handled with care, without rasgueado marks, and kept at proper humidity levels.
Included is a custom built Hoffee Carbon fiber case. It's really a tank.

For some reason Attachments weren't working, but here are all the pictures:

I got to play a double-sided (laminate) cedar-top that Steve made for one of the Assads... it was amazing! Liked it so much that I asked Steve for the same bracing on my (regular-sides) spruce top.
