Comments:

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.

For those needing a smaller guitar, Please See My 630 and 640 Scale Performance Guitars as well

Price and Discounts – The normal price of this classical guitar is $5500 plus Expedited Shipping (USPS Express 1-2 Day).  If the guitar is Discounted, the Price to you, Shipped, is listed in the Shopping Cart (Once you Add To Cart)

There are all good things to say.  These guitars are getting more difficult to come by, so if you have the chance, get her while the getting is there.  Don’t hesitate..you won’t be disappointed.

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.  Additionally, these guitars are getting very difficult to acquire – I’ve waited many months to receive this guitar.  They are quite good and the price point is hard to beat.  These guitars are built in Ben Lomond California.

Special Note: This particular guitar is very responsive.  I had to ask why the guitar was being sold.  Too many guitars of high quality, something had to go.  LOL  Beautiful voice, with nice deep basses and singing trebles.  She was very well cared for as you can see in the photos.  The very slightest evidence of tiny nail ticks under the rosette, treble side and very few of them.  I doubt you can see them in the hi-def photos.

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 – 171226-hill-performance-3788 – a honey bunny of a guitar, with voice, power, and expression.  Nicely set up as well.

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