Our Hill Classical Guitar Estudio Series guitars look, sound and play like much higher priced instruments. These guitars have been designed and built with the same care and quality NEW WORLD GUITARS are known for.
The Estudio Series features hand-selected solid spruce or cedar soundboards producing richer bass, distinct trebles and the powerful projection players are seeking. While students will find the price attractive, any level player will find everything about these guitars to be first-class.

- Some Further Information regarding your Hand Size and picking a scale length
- Players with shorter hands and/or fingers should seriously consider the 640mm or the 628mm or the 615mm scale.
- This applies to most players and guitars, in general. Don’t force the issue. Get a guitar that makes you comfortable. Player Series or Estudio or any concert instrument. It shouldn’t be a chore to play or perform on your classical guitar.
- My fitting sessions with numerous players over the years has proven that a slightly smaller scale is simply more comfortable for the majority of players, while sacrificing nothing in terms of tone and volume.
- The difference is the length of the neck, the width of the nut at 48-51mm and the proportional fretting of the instrument.
- The 650mm is suitable for those players whose spread between thumb and pinky is 9″ or greater
- The 640mm is suitable for those players whose spread between thumb and pinky is 8″-9″
- The 628mm is suitable for those players whose spread between pinky and thumb is 7″-8″
- The 615mm is suitable for those players whose spread between pinky and thumb is 6″-7″
