I've been playing guitar since I was 6. Studied Classical guitar in my early 20's for a few years. Got into blues and jazz and gigged for over 30 years. Got tired of being up until 4am so I don't gig anymore. I teach Guitar and beginning Piano. I also tune and repair Pianos. I'm turning my attentions back to Classical guitar and some other tunes that will fit the nylon string sound. I didn't really know much about the current instruments and haven't had a classical guitar for a very long time. I did a lot of research and watched a lot of vids on the youtubezz..LOL...and I just pulled the trigger on a Ken Hill New World 640S. I have smaller hands and its been so long since I played with the wider neck profile I felt it was better to get something with a smaller scale and the 640S fit into the price range I was looking at.

I also like the sound of the spruce top...not that I don't like the sound of cedar I just prefer what I perceive as a more clear projecting sound from spruce. The Cedar seems to accentuate the lower frequencies of every register. Sort of like the notes hang around on the top a lot longer where the spruce seem to just jump off with out the extra buildup of lower frequencies. Either way I will be exploring my old books and putting together the pieces I did play back in the day.

I'm looking forward to getting lost in the beautiful sounds of Classical guitar.
