  • Comments:

    These lattice-fronted guitars of Stephen Hill have found favour with many performing musicians; Denian Arcoleo, Gary Ryan, Manus Noble & more. With traditionally-constructed back and sides, they are much nearer normal weight than most Australian lattice-topped guitars yet have a notably strong sound but with a more traditional sound character. With a deep bass originating from an F body resonance, the treble is also strong and bell-like giving the whole instrument a vitality and strong voice throughout the range.
