Thanks for the feedback. I have been emailing Rick with questions and he has been very good with his replies. The Players also have a discount at the moment. Hard choice.doug wrote: ↑Thu Oct 26, 2017 1:38 pmI have an Estudio, and I really like it. It stays at my office, and I play it during the day if I get a chance. I haven't tried a Player, but I would imagine that, since they are solid bodied, rather than laminated back and sides, they would sound slightly better.
Right now, Rick Savage has an excellent deal on Estudio's, until Oct. 31. ....$150 off.
I have been listening to Rick's comparison of the 615 spruce and the cedar. I hate to say this but I cannot tell a huge difference between them. All the guitars I already own are cedar so I will probably go with that. Any suggestions?
I've looked at the Cordoba C9/C10 parlors. But I am looking to buy a 615mm and the Cordoba's are 630mm.souldier wrote: ↑Thu Oct 26, 2017 9:17 pmI'd go for the Cordoba C10 parlor if you want a short scale. It is just as good as the player but for less money. I understand that it is Kenny Hill who pretty much designed the Cordoba guitars and set up their shop. I have played the estudio, player and c10 parlor. My favorite until now is a Spruce c10 parlor
Which do you prefer, if any, the spruce or the cedar?MrF1 wrote: ↑Thu Oct 26, 2017 9:28 pmI've owned both the Player and Estudio KH New World guitars. I currently have two Players that are fantastic - one 650 spruce and a 650 cedar w/elevated fingerboard...unbelievably great instruments for under $2K.
I highly, highly recommend the Kenny Hill Player series.
I just heard your recording of Sepia with this guitar. It sounds great. Nice playing BTW.amy3000 wrote: ↑Tue Oct 31, 2017 1:20 amI didn't see this until today. I have a 615 mm spruce Player that I'm very happy with. I went back and forth about spruce vs cedar too. My teacher and my brother (a bass player) liked the sound of spruce better in the recordings so that's what I went with. It sounds great, is easy to play and looks lovely. You will enjoy it.
