Indian Hill OM Zircote by Michael Kennedy No Longer Available

About a year ago I met with Michael Kennedy on the sales floor of the shop. He was stopping by to show us some of his new steel string guitars and introduce his company Indian Hill guitars. I had heard his name when talking with master luthier Sergi de Jonge and even seen an example of his work on a classical double top during his apprenticeship. Needless to say I was very interested to see his work. Often your first look and strum on a guitar will tell you a lot about a builder and these are definitely impressive well built instruments. Not only does Michael have the practical knowledge and skill necessary for guitar building but he seems to have achieved a wonderful balance between beautiful aesthetics, structural integrity and most importantly great tone. His attention to detail is excellent from the neck joint and internal braces to wood selection and finish work.
