Kenny Hill Performance Classical Guitar #3842 Spruce 640mm

Comments:

The 640mm models measure approximately 1/8″ less than the 650mm in all dimensions.

This guitar is beautiful.  Kenny and his staff are choosing some of the prettiest woods I’ve ever seen, while being structurally correct for sonic character.

The  Spruce soundboard almost shimmers she’s so gorgeous.  Her sound, timbre, resonance, and her play are equally spectacular.   The Rosewood is equally beautiful.  Forget losing anything just because she’s a touch smaller.  If anything, the darned guitar is more intense, as if she wants to explode with more power because she’s contained.  Ridiculously good is an apt phrase for the guitar.

This particular guitar is extremely nice!  Gods, she is so bloody powerful, with a sweetness that just isn’t right.  A real gem.  They are also difficult to come by, where I am waiting on these guitars for months on end.  I re-recorded her on October 31, 2015 and man alive, she is awesome

MP3 Audio – Hill Performance Classical Guitar #3842 – 151031-k-hill-performance-33842-640-spruce  – Very tight, responsive and powerful.  Bold, clear, beautiful basses without being on the boomy side, with that special high E string ring out that everyone looks for and adores.  Easy play, concert guitar.  Superb finish and detail.  Very musical and wholly expressive.  Very nice, indeed.
