IMPORTANT NOTE: THERE IS NO C-70, or C-700 MODEL. IT HAS BEEN DETERMINED THROUGH EXTENSIVE RESEARCH OF EXISTING LABELS, THAT LABELING WAS A MANUAL EFFORT, AND THE WRITING OF ENGLISH CHARACTERS BY JAPANESE WORKERS (IN THE JAPANESE FACTORIES THAT PRODUCED CONN) WAS OBVIOUSLY DIFFICULT FOR THOSE INDIVIDUALS--JUST AS IT WOULD BE DIFFICULT FOR AN AMERICAN TO DUPLICATE A JAPANESE CHARACTER. THUS, IT APPEARS THAT THE NUMBER 2 WAS SOMETIMES WRITTEN WITH AN INCOMLETE "TAIL"--MAKING IT APPEAR TO BE A 7, OR THE SERIF ON A NUMBER 1 WAS EXAGGERATED, MAKING IT LOOK LIKE A 7. IT ALSO HAS BEEN SEEN THAT SOMETIMES WHEN THE DASH WAS DRAWN BETWEEN THE C OR F AND THE NUMBER, THE PEN WASN'T LIFTED OFF THE LABEL, MAKING A 1 SOMETIMES APPEAR TO BE A 7. ANOTHER COMMON ANOMALY WAS IN THE WRITING OF SERIAL NUMBERS--WHERE 5'S APPEAR TO BE 8'S, AND WHERE 1'S MIGHT APPEAR TO BE 7'S OR WHERE 2'S MIGHT APPEAR TO BE 7'S. THIS TOPIC IS COVERED IN GREATER DETAIL IN "CONN GUITAR LABELLING" (SCROLL DOWN TO SEE THAT AREA OF THIS WEB PAGE).

HISTORY AND FACTS
CONN ACOUSTIC GUITARS--A BRIEF HISTORY

Conn acoustic guitars were made between 1971 and 1978. After MacMillan & Co bought the G. C. Conn Company in 1969 Conn's corporate offices were moved from Elkhart, Indiana to Oakbrook, Illinois. Shown below is a current-day photo of the building at the Oakbrook location.

 
To view a map of the Oakbrook location where Conn's Guitar business was based, simply click on the logo picture at right (IT WILL OPEN A SEPARATE WINDOW) >
 
 
 
Administrative offices and operations for the guitar line were set up in late 1970. The first employee of the official Conn Guitar division was Jerry Ackley. Jerry, who was a guitar player himself, was hired in August of 1970 and was tasked with setting up and building the Conn guitar business--with an emphasis on building upon the relationship that Conn already had with schools in the brass and woodwind market. Conn was a well-known and established brand, and wanted to enter the booming guitar market. No guitars were actually made in Oakbrook. Instead they were built to Conn's design standards by contract manufacturers in Japan. Mr. Ackley was responsible for helping to design the first models, and for setting up contracts with overseas manufacturers, and overseeing production. He chose an established factory in Hamamatsu, Japan about an hour from Tokyo (see map below),
 
 
Tokai-Gakki was the factory who was the first to build the first Conn guitars. Tokai already had their own line of instruments--known mostly for their classical instruments. All initial production guitars were made there until at least 1972--and probably afterward as well (history after 1972 is vague). Concurrently with setting up production contracts with Tokai-Gakki, Mr. Ackley also wrote a book for school instruction called "The Conn Method". This blue-vinyl binder with its comprehensive teaching method (and accompanying 33-1/3 LP, and later cassette) was written to bridge the only real gap that existed in the school market by providing a comprehensive teaching method for music teachers--most of whom were only knowledgeable of woodwind, brass, and percussion instruments. Tokai actually built a prototype classical guitar for Mr. Ackley before actual production began, as he was developing the materials for schools. It was a prototype C-60--which he still has today.  Below are photos of Jerry's original prototype C-60.

ABOVE: Jerry Ackley's Conn C-60 Prototype, from rear (solid rosewood).

ABOVE: In this photo you can see the headstock of Jerry's prototype. The final design for the headstock looked much different.

After Jerry established the business, he left Conn in 1972 to pursue other ventures. But during his tenure with Conn, several guitar manufacturers including builder Tad Adachi, and the famed Matsumoku and Aria factories sent prototypes to Mr. Ackley in an effort to show their wares for the purpose of gaining some of the Conn business. Jerry gave several of the prototypes to associates, and some to family members, budding musicians, or even professional musicians, and many are still around--and probably do not match any of the current catalog data. These were all high quality solid wood instruments, most of which had no branding shown on them.  It was a time of competitiveness in the guitar industry, and manufacturers--Japan especially--raced to make their capabilities known and to gain market share in the booming guitar business. Conn was seen as a lucrative customer, given their their huge distribution network, their reputation, their readiness to spend the cash, and their long-established relationships.
After 1972, Aria factories (who also produced Yamaha guitars under contract to Yamaha) may have succeeded in gaining some of the Conn business, and may have made several models under contract to Conn (Conn branded). Some sources state that Matsumoku built almost all Conn acoustic guitars after 1972--but this is unsubstantiated. There are few records that exist about Conn's history before 1981 because, according to the Conn-Selmer company, all records of that era "were destroyed". Any and all remaining information, including catalogs and brochures about the former company are in the hands of private individuals. Research into 9-year Conn guitar history is somewhat inhibited by these limiting factors, and information becomes increasingly difficult to obtain as former employees of that era are aging, and others are either no longer alive, or may not remember. Additional information may be included in various books that are for sale in the open market--many of which have been consulted (but probably not all).
 
DRIFTER - CONTINENTAL BRANDS
So Japan manufacturing continued, and Conn continued the Korean connection by marketing the Korean made guitars under the Continental, and Drifter brands. The Continental brand existed some years prior to the Conn version, but was not related. The Continental and Drifter contracting activity was not managed by the Oakbrook IL facility but was managed instead by the Conn Organ division, located in another Chicago suburb--Downers Grove. Some of these guitars displayed the Conn logo on the headstock. Later ones had a variety of headstock labelling including "Continental by Conn", etc. Most of the labels used for Continental were the familiar gold or silver foil labels similar to those used on Conn brand guitars--sometimes carrying the Conn brand name in addition to the Continental name, and the "Oakbrook, Illinois" printing.. The Continental brand name existed after the demise of the Conn guitar business--but again was not related to Conn  The Drifter line continued on into the early 80's using their own unique paper label--oval in shape (similar to the oval Conn labels of 1978/79).
 
Continental and Drifter brands are not the subject of this site and therefore will not be discussed further.
 
Conn acoustic guitar manufacturing was discontinued after the 1978 model year, and Conn electric guitars were introduced in 1979 but were only made and sold for a short time. Catalog info for electrics is only available for 1980, and that may in fact be the only year they were made, distributed, and sold.
Like most guitar makers, Conn had their own unique patented acoustic headstock. Mr. Ackley, mentioned above, devised the first design that was used on all classical guitars from 1971 through 1978. The only notable difference between some models was the Conn rosette emblem below the CONN name on some headstocks, while not present on others. It has been undetermined if there is some specific reason why certain models have the rosette and others do not. See these pictures of Conn's acoustic headstock design without rosette, and with rosette. In 1978, the entire lineup of steel-string Conn acoustics were re-designed--including the new headstock design and logo. But the classical models retained the prior headstock shape.

CONN GUITAR LABELLING
Jerry Ackley devised the first labelling scheme for Conn. And for the first 3 years of production, that original labelling scheme was consistently followed. Mr. Ackley's labelling methodology went like this: Every Conn classical model carried a gold label, and every steel string model carried a silver label. Serialization for these first guitars was actually devised by the Tokai Gakki factory in Japan, and followed a specific type of pattern that is described below, See further explanation below in the serial number discussion (bold print: "The serial numbers of 1971-1977..."). See also various departures from the explained schemes.
 
Nearly every Conn acoustic guitar made from 1971 through 1977 bore an adhesive-backed gold or silver label (either very thin foil or thicker aluminum plate laminated to a thin plastic film backing material) mounted to the inside back--visible inside the soundhole. Higher-end Conns that have inside graft strips (2-piece and 3-piece backs) have either (a) a heavier label of thicker aluminum--more like the thickness of a credit card or hotel key card, or (b) model number stamped into the wood heel block (inside where the neck is mounted to the body).  Almost all other models have a label similar to foil. Those 1971 thru 1977 Japan-made guitars that have the labels, on which model numbers and serial numbers appear, seem to have been hand written with a ball-point pen--and which most are legible. Conn labels are found both very neatly written, or barely legible, and everything in between! This legibility issue stands to reason--try writing with a ball point pen on a piece of aluminum foil.
 
Stamping of the heel block (inside the guitar) was used on some of the high-end Japan-made Conns (C-33, C-60, etc.)--while others in the same model range had labels.
 
LEGIBILITY OF LABELS
Workers who wrote the information were likely unaccustomed to writing English characters. Another problem with model identification using the foil/aluminum labels: many of the labels have fallen off over the years, likely due to use of inferior adhesives--making it difficult to identify some models (model identification is still possible in most cases using the STATS sheet--scroll down). The labels were made of a two-part laminate; a front part that is very thin gold or silver foil, and a backing that is some kind of adhesive-backed thin white thin plastic film. The front foil also seems to commonly separate from the white backing on the foil-type Conn labels. As mentioned, the labelling followed a consistent method for the first three years; gold labels were initially used only on the classical models, and silver labels were used on steel-string models. Evidence of a deviation from this original practice is seen in the variety of silver or gold labels used in later models (mid-1974 and beyond).
 
FOIL LABELS
The foil or aluminum labels on the 1971-1977 Conn guitars divulge both where they were made, revealing "Oak Brook, Illinois, Made in Japan", and what year they were made. The 'Oakbrook/Japan' label indicates that the procurement and distribution centers were based in Oakbrook, but that the guitar was made in Japan. Guitars made in Japan during the 1970's were generally very well made due to the Japanese industry's ever-growing emphasis on defect prevention, consistency in quality and continuous improvement during that time period.
 
SERIAL NUMBERS
The serial numbers of 1971-1978 Conn classical guitars all consisted of 8 digits--with exception of the limited series of a few high end classicals.  As mentioned, 1971 through part of 1974, Conn guitars carried the year of manufacture as the first and second digits, and the month of manufacture as the third and fourth digits. A couple of examples are shown here, that show the adherence to Mr. Ackley's color scheme, based on their model numbers. One owner, Charlie Evans, owns a model C-10 (purchased new by his father--photo not shown) which has serial number 71080304--indicating August 1971 manufacture, and the label is gold. To the right, a model F-10 guitar owned by Rev. Christopher Scrivens carries a silver label, and serial number 72032020...indicating manufacture in 1972, and the month manufactured was March. Still another example below shows a gold foil label on a C-10 guitar made in February of 1974.
Beginning some time in 1974 (about April or so), Conn made a change in the serialization structure. Coincidentally it appears that little to no guitars produced after 1974 had silver foil labels. It appears that about that time, Conn may have switched exclusively to gold foil labels. The serialization occurred, going forward, but it appears that they may have had some silver foil labels "left over" when they began using the gold ones. Some Conn Acoustics still have silver labels as late as 1976--indicating that the gold were probably "phased in" once the silver labels were depleted. Unfortunately, reliable history on this aspect of the labelling is not available at this time. The only evidence that bears out the above information is that which has been accumulated from Conn owners.
As seen in the second picture below, the serialization change involved the use of the first two digits to indicate the week of manufacture (01 thru 52), and the 3rd and 4th digits as the year. In the example, 40770052 reveals that the guitar was made in the 40th week of 1977. The 0052 is thought to be the 52nd guitar made, but this is still being verified. This photo is from my own Conn F-15 steel string guitar.. As you can see, it is loosely secured, and coming off--as is characteristic of many Conn acoustic guitar labels.
Lyon & Healy first established the same type of serial numbering used by Conn in the late 19th century, and many manufacturers, including Japanese and Korean, adopted similar serial number schemes. Many, including Fender, Washburn, Takamine, Godin, and others still use this type of date-embedded serializing system today.
 

1978 LABELS
It appears that a new serialization system was put in place some time in 1978--coinciding with the redesigned headstock and what appeared initially to be a re-energized and revitalized effort to capture business. This effort was cut short by the decision to discontinue the acoustic guitar business after the 1978 model year. The serialization system for at least part of the 1978 models departed from the common prior system and no information is available at this time about the structure or meaning of the serial numbers for that model year. The label for 1978 steel-string models departed from the foil label to a more reliable paper label that seems to stay on. An example is shown at right. Serialization etc. changed, and many model numbers changed. Most classical models retained the foil label.
