Comments

Quick attack, buttery feel, creamy sound, loud as all get out.  This particular Cedar is quite nice, very warm, yet very clear with expression and musicality at your fingertips.

The sound, the power, the voice and the sheer joy you experience picking up this guitar can be very surprising.  The thing is, I’ve been in possession of these 630mm and 640mm scale guitars from Kenny Hill before, so I’m not that surprised.

They are quite powerful and very musical.

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.

Suitability

This guitar is set up and plays like a parlor guitar, but with power.  It is suitable for those with smaller hands, between 7-8″ of spread between the tip of one’s thumb and pinky in a comfortably outstretched hand.  A 640mm may be better for those with an 8-9″ spread.  A 650mm is usually best suited to a hand of 9″ or greater.

Price and Discounts

The normal price of this 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)

Other Notes

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.

To be clear, this guitar is 3/4 sized as per Kenny, which is typical of a Torres body sized classical (small body)

Photos and media below are up to date.  HSC is a Black Tamarkin Torres sized case, black tolex with red velvet interior.
