Kenny Hill Player 650mm 52mm Fingerstyle Spruce

Please note this listing is only for the Fingerstyle Spruce model in 650mm scale length with a 52mm nut width.

The Kenny Hill Player Series classical guitars are new models that have been in development for some time. At a more accessible price, these guitar feature selected Indian Rosewood, Cedar, Spruce : all solid woods and high quality woods used for the Top and the Back/Sides, along with a thinly applied lacquer finish for excellent resonance and response.

The 650 Fingerstyle Model features a 52mm nut width -43mm at the 1st fret – 50mm at the 12th fret and 58mm string spacing at the saddle/bridge.

Please note that the scale length is 650mm with a radiused neck for ease of play and comfort.

These guitars are not ported, but can be ordered with one port if required.  (What we have in stock is not ported).

The Fingerstyle model is also available (by special order or sometimes I have them in stock) that features a 48mm nut width, just like the other other Player Series I have available.

The Player series classical guitar offers the player a wide variety of choices: each model is available with a spruce or cedar soundboard.  Incredibly, the Spruce tops have silk rays or medullar rays throughout, highly prized and they really do sound terrific. The Cedar tops have beautiful straight grain, with a lush ruddy look to them, sounding warm and wet. The Indian Rosewood backs and sides are also superior. You might expect to see these types of woods selected for guitars well over $3000 or more in price.

Once you’ve tried these fingerstyle classical guitars, I am confident you will agree that once again, Kenny Hill has delivered a remarkable line of finely-crafted instruments; they look great, are a joy to play and sound terrific.

Players with shorter hands and/or fingers should seriously consider the 640mm or the 628mm scale.

My fitting sessions with numerous players over the years has proven that this 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″

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

Please NOTE that photos of all “production guitars” are stock photos, taken randomly for our numerous selection of guitars, whether they be from Kenny Hill – Esteve – Adalid or others.  It is virtually impossible and arduous to photograph each of our available production guitars.  I am, however, happy to take a few photos for you of any particular guitar with which your are interested.

Handcrafted instruments are photographed and listed individually, usually identified by a serial number, date and or some other combination.

MP3 Audio – 190207-Kenny Hill Player 650mm 52mm Fingerstyle Spruce  – what fun to play this guitar, very easy, musical and powerful enough to warrant playing it acoustically.  It makes it an easy decision to install a pickup of your choice.  I prefer the Fishman Ellipse Blend with a Microphone or at least an LR Baggs (none of which I have affiliation with professionally or otherwise).  I play some simple progressions, and some Ragtime-esque things along with some of Sam’s Lullaby

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