2019 Kenny Hill Crossover Signature #4220 Spruce EIRW
This Signature by Kenny Hill is another fabulous example of his work. So much fun, energetic, resonant against your body and so very musical. Perfectly setup by Kenny. Powerful and sensitive.
Please note the Ergonomic Build with a stand up feature on the back, and the armrest sloping on the larger bout.
She is also setup with Kenny’s version of intonation frets. It looks off, but really, you have no idea, once you play it. The intonation is spot on. Playing it, you have no idea the frets are altered, at least I didn’t notice a thing.
East Indian Rosewood, Custom Built at 630mm, Cutaway (Crossover), Radiused Fretboard, Barbera Soloist Pickup installed (this is a bridge pickup, where the saddle is the transducer…works seriously well), Sloane Tuners, bronze stippled, Elevated Fingerboard, Truss Rod, 12 Hole Tie Block for the bridge. Basically, all the bells and whistles in a great guitar built at 650mm scale length. It does not get better than this.
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.
Certainly, she has sound, performance, volume and the musical nature of the guitar are all there and then some.
Really, these guitars are incredible. 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 guitars 🙂

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
