Conn Job.


Recommended Posts

I just found out that, in the 70's, the C.G.Conn company, makers of student level brass and woodwind instruments, tried to expand their music instrument market to include guitars, aimed at the school market. Sales were lackluster and the venture folded before the decade was out.


They had flat tops, solid body electrics, electric arch tops, etc. Not initially, but for a time, they were made by Matsumoku, maker of Aria, Yamaha and Norlin era Epiphones. From the pics they appear to be a mid-level grade instrument.



Here's a website that details some of the history: http://thejetmedic.com/connguitars.aspx
