2012 Kenny Hill Signature #3397 Cedar EIRW

She is another truly fabulous example of Kenny’s work.  The Rosewoods are gorgeous.  The guitar itself is so much fun, energetic, resonant against your body and so very musical.

Comments: 

See any of the other Kenny Hill Signature classical guitars that I have available. These classical guitars are silky smooth, powerful in the basses, piercing in the mids and singing in the trebles. This is one of Kenny’s latest innovations, where the Double Top, which he pretty much perfected is now combined with wood lattice bracing, achieving even more volume, while sacrificing nothing in terms of color and tonal palette. These are some of my very favorite guitars, of which I own 2 for my personal performance needs.   Simply, there is very little left to be desired in a world class guitar.

Really, these guitars are incredible, and the 650mm scale even has some extra little punch in her. Please note that I use two of Kenny’s Signatures, a Spruce and a Cedar for my own performance needs. Easy action adjustment via the 5/32″ truss rod used in all Hill Guitars.  Very smart. Believe me, this guitar just vibrates against your body, cutting the air with pure sound and music.  If you sound bad, it’s your fault, not the guitar’s  🙂

This guitar is pre-owned, by a good friend of mine, which he barely has played in the last 6 years, due to studying and teaching abroad, South America and Africa.  He simply doesn’t play anymore.  Given the lack of use, her play wear is nominal, though evident, in the form of little nail ticks in and around the rosette, one smallish rasqueado mark along the treble side under the neck, and some slight finish wear in the expected places along the top bout, back and lower bout (leg area).  I’ve buffed and polished them out so they are barely evident.  I am all about full disclosure, always.  Nothing structural here, the guitar plays and sounds beautiful.  She is a 650mm scale length with beautiful Sloane machines.  Case is also used, but in good working order, more than sufficient for the guitar.
