Where do I begin I am so in love with this guitar on all levels. Thanks for your wonderful work it is truly a thing of beauty . I am playing it every spare moment and my fingers are screaming for a break and so is my family.
I love this guitar, you are a true artist Kevin I am glad I found out about your work now because later I don't think I will be able to afford you when your guitars are in great demand.
I will continue to promote you and your guitars.

Just wanted you to know that I am loving my 00. I have been playing piano so much over the past ten years, this instrument has really renewed my interest in guitar and the art of fingernail maintenance. The guitar has a very balanced and rich tone that will only get better with age. The action is exactly suited for my playing style. My brothers are jealous (you may have future customers) they noticed how light and agile a guitar of this size can be without significant sacrifice in tone and volume. And above all, the design and workmanship is superb.

Custom 00 Model #10 delivered August, 2009
I purchased an OM model from Strings in Monterey on Tuesday. Mark is going to hand carry it to you for electronic installation and a strap button on the neck. I am so excited! I can hardly wait to play it again. I had to hold my emotions for fear of crying when I played it for the first time. The guitar is inspiring and more than I ever dreamed I could have in an instrument. Your work will become an important part of my life. Thank you!
I love the guitar! I used it last Sunday in a worship service. The soundman was delighted - no feedback and the sound was incredible.
Thank you again and God Bless,

Custom OM Model #14 delivered December, 2009
I’m the worship pastor at Shadow Hills Baptist Church in Las Vegas. I bought #9 (the all zebrawood OM) I played it this weekend while I led worship. We have 4 worship services so I had a good amount of time to get to know my new beauty. First let me say I’m 110 % pleased with my new guitar. I sold a total of 6 other guitars to make way for this instrument. I think I’ve found a guitar that will meet all my different needs, and I love the way it looks.
I love the OM size more than I thought I would. I did a lot of hard strumming this weekend and this guitar wasn’t overwhelmed. I also did a Chris Rice song which involved a lot of finger picking and I can’t believe how well balance this guitar is. I’ve never played anything like it. Needless to say I couldn’t be more pleased!

Custom OM #9 delivered March. 2010
I have been playing guitar for almost 45 years own several beautiful and great sounding Taylor Guitars. A beautiful Presentation PS14CE Brazilian/Engleman and a Limited Edition 614CE Maple. They both sound wonderful! I teach Guitar full time and believe I know a great sounding acoustic when I hear it.
I have just added to my collection what I believe is the best overall sounding and spectacular looking Brazilian/ European Spruce Orchestra Model Acoustic made by Kevin Corcoran. This sunburst guitar is a crowd pleaser! I am in love with playing again. I have known Kevin many years when he owned the Gilroy Guitar Gallery, and have bought several great guitars there. His integrity and follow up care are among the best I have ever experienced.
This baby OM will really Rock your World! The sustain, overall balance and clarity are remarkable.

Custom OM #12 delivered September, 2009
I ordered my Grand Auditorium model on the same day that I picked up my Martin that you refretted with stainless steel frets. The experience was a pleasure -- from choosing the wood, our discussions on the various aspects of building a guitar, and the baby pictures you provided of the various stages of its construction.
FINALLY, you called me to come and pick it up. What a beauty !!! I remember specifying that my goal was an instrument with understated elegence. You easily met that goal. The most important quality however is the tone. It rings crystal clear across all the strings up and down the fret board. I am very pleased with your workmanship and your design.
By the way, you also did a great job on my Martin. Although it is now relegated as a back up instrument, the fretwork turned out great, and the action is much improved. Thanks again.

Custom OM #25 delivered March, 2012
I love my Corcoran OM. It is beautiful, unique and equisite. A much higher quality guitar than those that are mass produced. I did a lot of research before choosing Kevin. He takes pride in the quality of his work. He approached my guitar like a piece of art. I had very specific customized requests in my design. He walked me thoroughly through every step and helped me make decisions I hadn't considered. He kept me updated with pictures throughout the experience. The end product was stunning. The sound is richer and more clear than my Taylor and isn't even broken in yet. I highly recommend The Corcoran. Kevin is a joy to work with.
