  • Comments:

    Here is a strong-sounding instrument from Stephen Hill. Although a Granada-style, fan-strutted guitar, it appears to have a volume and projection very similar to Stephen's very popular lattice-braced instruments. With low air resonance between F & F#, this has a warm and deep bass, plentiful middle range and strong, projecting 1st string. The cedar gives a warmth of sound yet the treble has clarity and sparkle. All together resulting in a guitar that impresses and is comfortable to play, therefore highly recommended.
