About This Listing

Kenny Hill Signature Classical Guitar 2010 Cedar/Rosewood 650mm solid top fan-braced concert guitar features French polished Cedar top with Indian rosewood back and sides, Spanish cedar neck with elevated ebony fingerboard. The guitar has a passive undersaddle pickup installed with an end-pin jack. The pickup can easily be removed and the endpin jack hole plugged to revert this instrument back into a traditional concert classical guitar.

The Kenny Hill Signature Classical  guitar has become the instrument of choice for scores of concert artists, recording artists, competitors, professors, fine players and collectors around the world. This is an earlier model Signature built in 2010 and utilizes a solid cedar top with traditional fan bracing as opposed to the newer Signature tops which are double-topped Nomex cored lattice braced instruments. This provides the player with a more traditional sounding instrument, a plus for someone who wants the trademark geometry of a Kenny Hill Signature without the more contemporary sound that is characteristic of the new double top lattice braced instruments.

This early Signature Classical guitar is constructed with a solid cedar top.  

Sides are constructed of Indian rosewood laminated with a cypress lining and includes sound ports. The back is Indian rosewood only, with no lining.

The Spanish cedar neck and headstock are joined with a wonderfully executed V joint. The thickness and shape of the neck, and the relief of the elevated ebony fingerboard, as well as the string setup have been optimized to make this guitar a dream to play.

The neck is installed with a two-way adjustable truss rod to allow a quick relief adjustment to suit the player's requirements. The elevated fingerboard configuration of this Hill Signature guitar serves two purposes: (1) it changes the way the strings pull on the top, promoting efficient vibrational transfer; and (2) it gives the player easier access to the upper register above the 12th fret.

This instrument is French polished (there is some wear and fingernail scratches) However, there are no gouges in the wood and the fingernail scratches are repairable.

A very attractive set Sloane tuning machines are installed.

This earlier model Signature design, materials, and construction culminate into a solid, very balanced and powerful, extremely easy playing guitar. As Kenny likes to says, These are the best guitars I know how to make.
