"With its extroverted sound, easy playability, and clean craftsmanship, this modern guitar in traditional guise has a lot to offer someone looking for a concert-quality classical with exceptional balance and a warm, punchy tone with wide dynamic range. In short, the Performance series may be the best manifestation yet of Kenny Hill’s desire to provide concert-quality guitars, in accessible quantities, at affordable prices." - Michael Millham, ACOUSTIC GUITAR MAGAZINE , November 2010

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
- 1 7/8" [48mm] radiused ebony fingerboard at the nut
- lattice bracing
- optional Schatten pickup install
