Product Description

Kenny Hill Player Classical Guitar – Cedar 650mm with PORTS

The Kenny Hill Player Classical Guitar Series are new models that have been in development for some time. At a more accessible price, these guitar feature selected Indian rosewood, cedar, spruce and cypress: all solid woods, and a thinly applied lacquer finish.

The Player Series Classical Guitar offers the player a wide variety of choices: each model is available with an Engelmann Spruce or Western Red Cedar soundboard, 650mm or shorter 640mm string lengths and lower. 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, most evidencing the same Medullar Rays. 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.

Please note that this version of the Hill Player Series has 2 Sound Ports exactly as you would see in Kenny’s Performance or Signature Series…$200 upcharge for this feature, reflected in the sale price when you add to cart.  Thanks.

Kenny Hill Player Classical Guitar Specs – Hill Player 650mm Cedar with Ports

Once you’ve tried these 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.

  • Bone nut & saddle
  • Sound board: Available in Spruce or Cedar (solid woods) see other listings within the Kenny Hill Category – Player Series
  • Back & sides: East Indian Rosewood (solid woods) – again, Kenny chooses the finest woods for all of his guitars.
  • Fingerboard: Ebony
  • Guitar is fitted with a dual action truss rod (all Hill Guitars, from his Signature Model down, including Estudio Models, have the same).

Players with shorter hands and/or fingers should seriously consider the 640mm 628mm or the 615mm 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.

      • You can also measure your pinky tip to index finger tip spread comfortably.  You should be at 6.5″-7″ on this measurement – you would adjust 1″ less for each scale length lower.

      • The 640mm is suitable for those players whose spread between thumb and pinky is 8″-9″

      • The 628mm is best for players with a span of 7″-8″

      • The 615mm scale length is best for players with a span of 7″ or less to about 6″

    • Of course, these are generalizations, but I do find that most players fit these standards.

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.
