2015 Kenny Hill Signature #3999 650mm 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.  The guitar has had one owner, who took fabulous care.  There is the slightest mark in the top, along the treble side of the lower bout, which is small and very hard to see.  Looks like a nail or string brushed slightly against the finish.  Rosewood is in sweet condition.  She also plays really well, little to no buzz (I tweaked the setup with the slightest relief in the neck, and put a high tension low E on the guitar).  The mids and trebles are super sweet, with drive and song in her voices.

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.

The new Signatures from Kenny are surpassing themselves. Something is slightly different here with this particular guitar and in a very good way! Kenny brought it to my attention and I have to wholeheartedly agree. She is louder, sweeter, more pure in tone, if possible. She seriously cuts through the air.  Awesome guitar.

Note that this is a 650mm Scale Length Guitar, more suitable to those with a 8.75″- 9″ + span between outstretched pinky and thumb.

Really, these guitars are incredible, while the guitar 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  🙂

The guitar will not be discounted except to include the HSC and Express Shipping to the 50US.  Thanks.  If there is a Discount, it is listed in the Shopping Cart (Add To Cart to see your Discount Price) and will be quite temporary.

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

MP3 Audio –  190829-2015 Kenny Hill Signature #3999 650mm Cedar EIRW – such a sweet and buttery sound and feel to this guitar.  The power and evocative nature is simply a bonus.  Fun to play, a beautiful voice.
