November 9, 2012
Comments off

Comments Here is a beautiful double-topped, 2006 model classical guitar from Kenneth Hill. The double top concept uses an ultar-light layer of Nomex between very thin cedar and spruce layers. This allows a very strong, resonant top with the warm, round characteristics of cedar flavoured with the sharpness and clarity of spruce.The Hill signature series guitars also feature an elevated fretboard based a concept developed by the late Thomas Humphrey, easing access to upper registers while altering the string angle relative to the bridge – perhaps stirring the top rather than twisting it – giving a firm, more postitive response to picking attack.
Serial Number 2471, built in 2006.
Pricing $6000 CAD including case.SOLD
Neck Mahogany neck with unbound, elevated ebony fingerboard. 650mm scale length and 50mm nut width. V-type head joint.
Frets No appreciable wear.
Body Traditional ‘Spanish’ construction with a double top. Brazilian rosewood back and sides with two soundports on either side of the heel. Double top construction, cedar outer and spruce inner layers, with Rodriguez pattern fan bracing. Elevated fingerboard.
Finish Original French Polish lacquer finish in very good condition. French Polish finishes don’t provide the ‘poured glass’ gloss finish that you’ll see on many mass-production instruments. It is a much lighter, hand application process that protects the surface without impeding its vibration or resonance.
Hardware/electronics Sloan tuners, bone nut and saddle.
Playability/Action Plays well as is, and we can of course alter the setup to the player’s requirements.
Case Original TKL hardshell case included.
