CONN ACOUSTIC CLASSICAL (NYLON-STRING) GUITARS
KNOWN MODELS OF CONN CLASSICAL GUITARS
Several models were produced--most in Japan and some in Korea, and several unbranded prototype models were made in the USA. Those prototypes are considered the rarest and most feature all solid woods and all but a few have no name-brand on them. It would be hard to distinguish most of these. A STATS sheet is included below with information only on known models, and known prototypes

STATISTICS SHEET and DIFFERENCES (copyright 2006-2022)
Below is a link to an Excel spreadsheet with known specifications on the various models. Included in one tab is an average selling-price sheet and, where available, an original owner's invoice. For classical guitars there is a tab that contains the rosette--the primary method for distinguishing between models. Click on the below picture to see the spreadsheet. You can download a copy for your personal use. This is my personal work, so distribution or putting this information on any other web site is prohibited. Placing a link on any site and charging a fee to access it is also prohibited. Although it is difficult to keep an ongoing and accurate listing of selling prices, I have done this for some time, but it is a daunting task to keep it up to date. So when you consult pricing, you may be looking at 2-3 year-old data. Still it is a good guideline. Prices for Conn guitars has crept slowly upward over the past 10 years as the public has become aware of the good quality of these guitars.
