Comments:

Quick attack, buttery feel, creamy sound, loud as all get out. Please…these guitars are awesome!

The sound, the power, the voice and the sheer joy you experience picking up this guitar can be very surprising.

They are quite powerful and very musical.

There are all good things to say.  These guitars are getting more difficult to come by, so if you have the chance, get her while the getting is there.  Don’t hesitate..you won’t be disappointed.

Please read more about the luthier, Kenny Hill, here

They are always more powerful than you expect.  Much more.  The guitar will not be discounted, reflecting the difficulty in acquiring this guitar.  If you see a discount, jump on it.  Additionally, these guitars are getting very difficult to acquire – I’ve waited many months to receive this guitar.  They are quite good and the price point is hard to beat.  These guitars are built in Ben Lomond California.

Special Note: This particular guitar is very responsive.  I had to ask why the guitar was being sold.  Too many guitars of high quality, something had to go.  LOL  Beautiful voice, with nice deep basses and singing trebles.  She was very well cared for as you can see in the photos.  There is evidence of tiny nail ticks under the rosette, treble side and bass side, all honest play wear. I took close-up photos of each quadrant, full front and back shots to attempt to display them to you.  They are tough to see, but they are there.  The guitar is structurally perfect.  This happens to be an exceptional example of Kenny’s work on his Performance Series guitars.

Also, please note the insertion of an endpin in the butt of the guitar.  It is well done, attractive actually, not interfering with anything regarding the guitar, giving you the option of standup performance, if you wish it.  See photos.

Please note that this is a USA built guitar, by Kenny and his luthiers, in Ben Lomond, California

Media

Listening with high quality headphones or audio equipment is highly recommended including EQ manipulation, if possible. We record everything flat with just a touch of Reverb to relieve dryness. My goal is to record the guitar as realistically as is possible. I speak in the recordings, my thoughts about the guitar (and possibly other things?).  My speaking also serves to give you my first impressions and to also give you a balance of the engineering (or lack thereof) versus the sound of the guitar.  I simply do not have time to engineer much of anything.  Thanks. Rich

Please note that dust is an issue of late, especially with 5 humidifiers running within my gallery space.  We do our best to wipe things down between each shot, but the dust can be pervasive as a result of the humidity issues required in this colder, dryer weather.  I also run air purifiers within the space.  It does not help that much.  I have to say this out loud as I do not edit the photos.  There is full transparency here, as always, in my discussions, photos, recordings, etc.  It is never about tricking any of you.  It is about absolute and full disclosure so that you know exactly what you are looking at any time you visit my gallery or my site.

MP3 Audio – Coming Soon! – a honey bunny of a guitar, with voice, power, and expression.  Nicely set up as well.

My Solo Book of sheet music is available here if you’re interested.
