Stephen Hill - made when his workshop was in Lewes.

  • Year:

    2002 - number 102.

  • Body:

    South American rosewood with attractive grain lines, colour variations and decorative purflings.

  • Front:

    European spruce - a really good top with even grain and lots of medullary rays showing it to be well-quarter-sawn. Attractive geometric rosette with matching purflings and rosewood bridge.

  • Tuners:

    Rodgers with engraved brass sideplates and rosewood buttons.

  • Scale:

    64 cm - helpful for smaller hands

  • Neck Width:

    50 mm at the nut

  • Condition:

    In original, barely-played, bright & shiny condition.
    No scratches or nail marks. On extremely close inspection, there are barely-visible polish surface imperfections from case cushion contact.

  • Comments:

    This is a luxury version of Stephen's concert guitar at the time - with superior wood selection, extra decoration and high-specification Rodgers tuners. All the more pleasing to have been kept in superb condition. The shorter scale length and narrower neck width will suit someone with smaller hands or shorter fingers.
    Soundwise, the guitar has good clarity and pleasing balance. Having hardly been touched, it may well invite been played in and matured.
