a nylon stringed instrument with a powerful and beautiful acoustic sound with a narrower neck and a radiused fingerboard.

Our Hill Master Series CROSSOVER played rings around other crossover nylon stringed guitars whose diminished acoustic sound has been a disappointment to many. The PERFORMANCE, however, as a classical instrument has already demonstrated it will become a new standard against which mid-priced modern classical guitars will be measured: incredible quality sound projection.

Hallmarks of the PERFORMANCE are:
  • nomex double top w. spruce & cedar
  • lattice bracing
  • all solid woods
  • truss rod
  • bone nut & saddle
  • French polish finish
  • Indian rosewood back & sides
In addition, the standard PERFORMANCE CROSSOVER features:
  • 1 7/8" [48mm] radiused ebony fingerboard at the nut
  • lattice bracing
  • cutaway
  • optional Schatten pickup install
Base price with case $5495
