Kenny Hill Signature Double-Top 2003

Posted By Dusty Woodruff (Woodruff), Friday, September 16, 2016

2003 Kenny Hill, Signature Series, double-top
Scale: 640mm (less left-hand stretching!)
Soundboard: Spruce over cedar with fan strut bracing 
Finish: French polish
Back/Sides: Indian rosewood with soundports
Fretboard: Ebony
Condition: Good (a couple dings on the soundboard)
Tuners: Gilbert

Brief description:
This is a guitar that I have played both solo and with the Athens Guitar Duo since about 2005 and that I brought from John Sutherland. I am trying to sell the guitar for $4800 (the same setup retails now for $7500 according to Hill's website). I would go into depth about how the guitar sounds (like everyone does at this point) but just come over and check it out. The guitar sounds like a really well broken-in Hill and with his characteristic volume, clarity and richness! There are plenty of nuances to the sound but, again, come by and play it if you are interested--or if you are not interested and just want to play a very beautiful guitar, drink some coffee, and just want to shoot the breeze otherwise.  I live in Greensboro, GA.  

I am hoping to have a good sound clip up soon--stay tuned!

You can either e-mail me at athensguitarduo@gmail.com, or please feel free to call me at (706)372-5998

1996 Roberto Gomes double-back

Posted By Hideki Yamaya, Thursday, September 01, 2016

Classical guitar by Roberto Gomes, 1996 ‘La Loca’ #121


Cedar top, Indian rosewood back and sides.  Roberto Gomes is a Brazilian luthier who was living and working in Santa Cruz, CA. at the time.  Concert quality guitar, extremely loud, rich sound, very easy to play.  The secret to the volume is an internal soundboard, which he called a ‘double back’; this could be seen in one of the photos.  Has been played in countless gigs and concerts, and has some battle scars to show for it, but the French polish finish has been touched up recently, and looks very nice for a 20 yr. old instrument.  Around yr. 2000, it was serviced by John Gilbert, who installed a new nut, bridge saddle, and Gilbert tuners.  65cm scale.  It was used in these two recordings of mine:

Asking $4800 plus shipping.  The instrument is located in Portland, Oregon, USA.

Romantic 10-string guitar, no label, branded ‘Sonora’

Posted By Hideki Yamaya, Thursday, September 01, 2016
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d-7B84uNKyc

An instrument that has almost no collector value, as it has been extensively restored (by San Francisco luthier Mel Wong) and has no label.  Its value is in the playability and sound.  Played in numerous concerts and recordings.  It has a new fingerboard and modern frets, but everything else is original, including the tuners (except those on the treble side for strings 1-3, which have been replaced by those of the same era at some point), which still work perfectly. Most of the restoration work was in straightening the warped neck and replacing the fingerboard to make it playable again.  65cm scale.

Good clarity with a lot of resonance and rich bass.  Very easy to play.  Comes with a converted hardshell 12-string guitar case.  I’ll throw in a spare set of La Bella 10-string set.  It could be heard here:

Anonymous Romantic terz guitar

Posted By Hideki Yamaya, Thursday, September 01, 2016
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HdGOuqPSv6k

Romantic terz guitar, no label, probably mid-19th c. Germany or Austria


An instrument that has almost no collector value, as it has been extensively restored (by San Francisco luthier Mel Wong) and has no label.  Its value is in the playability and sound.  It has a new neck, fingerboard, headstock, and modern frets, but everything else is original, including the tuners, which still work perfectly.  The neck was swapped out because the original one was just too small, playable only by those with the tiniest of fingertips.  It was replaced by a neck with 45mm width at the nut, which is a lot more manageable.  The neck was ebonized in the original, which I opted not to have done on the replacement.  It also had a pretty sizeable crack on the side which has been repaired beautifully.  568mm scale.

Crystal clear highs and good mid-range body.  Extremely easy to play.  Comes with a hardshell SKB baby Taylor case which fits perfectly.  It could be heard here:

Asking US$2600 plus shipping.  The instrument is located in Portland, Oregon, USA.
