2021 Kenny Hill Signature #4257 Cedar DT EIRW 640mm
She is another truly fabulous example of Kenny’s work. This one, #4257, has to be one of the nicest guitars in this class that I have ever seen, heard or played. Easy on the hands, she is explosive in her affect. The Rosewoods are gorgeous. The guitar itself is so much fun, energetic, resonant against your body and so very musical.
There is smallish and honest play wear on the top, in and around the rosette. I will do what I can to minimize it all. The owner has hand issues, surgeries, but simply cannot play any longer. The guitar is sitting, where it really should be played. It is a phenomenal example of Kenny’s work. It is a 640mm scale length as well.
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 640mm Scale Length Guitar, more suitable to those with less than an 9″ span between outstretched pinky and thumb. Easier to play, even for myself. I normally use 660mm scale guitars, but these are seriously comfortable. Measuring the body, I was surprised to find that the measurements all equal the 650mm scale Signature. The only difference being the 640mm scale length of the classical guitar. If you’re sitting at an 8″ to 9″ span this guitar is going to fit you very nicely. Certainly, sound, performance, volume and the musical nature of the guitar are all there and then some.
Really, these guitars are incredible, and the 640mm 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 🙂
The guitar will not be discounted except to include the HSC. Shipping within the 50US and or Internationally is at additional cost. Thanks.

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 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

Richard Sayage –
Eugene sent us this review of his experience, just today. He is most kind.
“I just received my new Kenny Hill Signature and was both amazed and completely pleased with the purchase. The guitar was even better than I expected. It’s the first classical that I’ve ever had with an elevated fretboard and I was amazed how much easier it played. And the sound from this beauty is just amazing. It even makes me sound good!! As you would expect from Kenny Hill, the workmanship is impeccable and the sound awesome. I have another luthier made guitar and the difference in quality is amazing. The Signature is everything I wanted and more. I couldn’t be more pleased with my purchase.
Now let me talk a minute about Rich. This is the third guitar I have bought from him and I will go back again if I decide on another purchase. That is completely due to his knowledge, professionalism and his willingness to help in any way he can. His knowledge of the classical guitar is amazing. I’ve called a number of times with various questions and Rich always has a helpful answer. He is also ethical and honest in his dealings. I have complete faith in Rich and would recommend Savage Guitars to anyone planning on buying a quality classical guitar. If you plan on buying, go to Savage. You won’t be sorry. Eugene F. “
