About Us

Guitar Connoisseur is a monthly digital publication founded by Kelcey Alonzo in 2012, a New York City-based guitar collector and player. Before establishing a small exclusive boutique instrument business, leading into Guitar Connoisseur’s publishing, Alonzo worked full time in the print media industry, specializing in photo retouching for leading fashion magazines. Channeling this expertise into creating a sophisticated periodical, celebrating contemporary craft luthiery is the realization of a dream.
