Kenny Hill Signature #4143 Spruce 640mm

This Signature by Kenny Hill is another fabulous example of his work.  So much fun, energetic, resonant against your body and so very musical.

Comments: 

See any of the other Kenny Hill Signature classical guitars that I have available. These classical guitars are silky smooth, powerful in the basses, piercing in the mids and singing in the trebles. This is one of Kenny’s latest innovations, where the Double Top, which he pretty much perfected is now combined with wood lattice bracing, achieving even more volume, while sacrificing nothing in terms of color and tonal palette. These are some of my very favorite guitars, of which I own 2 for my personal performance needs.   Simply, there is very little left to be desired in a world class guitar.

The new Signatures from Kenny are surpassing themselves. Something is slightly different here with this particular guitar and in a very good way! Kenny brought it to my attention and I have to wholeheartedly agree. She is louder, sweeter, more pure in tone, if possible. She seriously cuts through the air.  Awesome guitar.

The guitar has been gently used for the last 3 years by a playing professional.  There is some wear of the finish in the back by the upper bout, and honest playing wear on the top, minimally so.  The special is in the sound and the play of the guitar, crystalline and pure in the trebles with the appropriate push and growl of the mids and basses, all blending together for a superior experience for the player and the audience.

The BearClaw Spruce is magnificent, almost translucent.  The Rosewoods are dark and ruddy, with straight lines, very desirable.

Note that this is a 640mm Scale Length Guitar, more suitable to those with less than an 9″ span between outstretched pinky and thumb.   Easier to play, even for myself.  I normally use 660mm scale guitars, but these are seriously comfortable. Measuring the body, I was surprised to find that the measurements all equal the 650mm scale Signature.  The only difference being the 640mm scale length of the classical guitar. If you’re sitting at an 8″ to 9″ span this guitar is going to fit you very nicely.  Certainly, sound, performance, volume and the musical nature of the guitar are all there and then some.

Really, these guitars are incredible, and the 640mm scale even has some extra little punch in her. Please note that I use two of Kenny’s Signatures, a Spruce and a Cedar for my own performance needs. Easy action adjustment via the 5/32″ truss rod used in all Hill Guitars.  Very smart. Believe me, this guitar just vibrates against your body, cutting the air with pure sound and music.  If you sound bad, it’s your fault, not the guitars  🙂

The guitar will not be discounted except to include the HSC and Express Shipping to the 50US.  Thanks.  If there is a Discount, it is listed in the Shopping Cart (Add To Cart to see your Discount Price) and will be quite temporary.

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
