Comments

First note that this is the overseas version of the Performance.  I find it equal to the original Performance guitars made in Ben Lomond, CA.  Hard to see that there’s any difference.  Except in the price, of course.  Very nice.

Quick attack, buttery feel, creamy sound, loud as all get out. Please…these guitars are awesome!

The sound, the power, the voice and the sheer joy you experience picking up this guitar can be very surprising.

They are quite powerful and very musical.

Please read more about the luthier, Kenny Hill, here

They are always more powerful than you expect.  Much more.  The guitar will not be discounted, reflecting the difficulty in acquiring this guitar.  If you see a discount, jump on it.

Special Note: This particular guitar is very responsive.  Beautiful voice, with nice deep basses and singing trebles.

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 –  201030-Kenny Hill Performance 93220 Spruce EIRW 640 – Nice!  Great little powerhouse of a guitar.  I’ll let the recording speak for the guitar.  I had a lot of fun playing her.

My Solo Book of sheet music is available here if you’re interested.
