If You Can Find One, Buy it!!!
I can't believe the quality of this guitar for this price!!! Anyone familiar with Luthier Kenny Hill would not believe that for about what you would pay in sales tax for one of his masterpieces, you can buy this extraordinary instrument. Designed in California and built in China, yes, I said the C word! But I have never seen this level of build quality from any Asian builder ever!! When you first pick it up, you can feel how lightly it is built which makes this little guitars voice strong and bell-like. The cedar top gives it a beautiful tonal balance and warmth that sounds like it costs much more. It does have a urethane finish but it is very light and perfectly applied, unlike many other Chinese built acoustics. The Fishman onboard electronics are just about perfect for this instrument and once again add to the overall value. The neck feels just right for this this old steel string player and the high tension Savarez stings complete the package. One word of advice, I would order the Cordoba Humidified Archtop case with this guitar because of the very light build. It could be damaged by too much dry winter indoor air.
