This guitar up for sale is absolutely beautiful - visually, tonally, and ergonomically.
VIDEO LINK AT BOTTOM!
Trying to "thin the herd" before my move from Tampa to Milwaukee! Most specs are above. Lattice (all wood!) double top with Indian Rosewood back and sides.
I have to say, this is is the nicest Hill I've tried. I'm going to make a video/recording soon, but it's sustain and clarity is incredible. I was just playing some Albeniz on it and man, was it gorgeous. And talk about some power - it has it. All the way up to the highest of trebles (a range that I have found that Hill's lack in sometimes). Only reason I'm selling is I have a new guitar now and this one needs to go (even though I keep on picking it up and debating whether my new one is better or not :/ ). This guitar has such a surprisingly organic sound, yet you have all of the volume of modern guitars. It's an incredible experience to play it.
PM me any questions!
Any scratches are in the pictures. No cracks/repairs!
Comes with Case originally provided by Kenny Hill.

Hopefully you feel this price is fair. I'm open to offers but I believe this is pretty fair - for an exceptional guitar!

No doubt being married can have its drawbacks. My wife is ready to kill me. I would love to own a Kenny Hill and a Smallman someday though. I'll keep playing the lottery. Yeah, in regard to the B-2, it's still here if your student is interested. The sound sample link is listed above. Have a good night Evan

No problem Joe, thanks for the message!

Hey guys! Just made a video on the guitar! Hopefully you enjoy! I don't do it justice. I recorded it on my Zoom H1 and iphone for video.

I own a KH signature cedar/spruce top. It sounds great.
I would recommend it to serious guitarist.
If I had the money, I would buy it. Unfortunately, I cannot afford; and of course, as was mentioned above, the "wife factor" is there too!!

Hi Evan, nice video! Nice guitar! I hope that you were successful selling the guitar. You play 998 well!

What was the last tune that you played an excerpt from on the video?

Thank you.
