  • Comments:

    These lattice-fronted guitars of Stephen Hill have found favour with many performing musicians; Gary Ryan, Denian Arcoleo, Manus Noble & more. With traditionally-constructed back and sides, they are much nearer normal weight than the Australian lattice-topped guitars yet have a notably strong sound but with a more traditional sound character. With depth of bass and a treble that is strong and bell-like, the whole instrument has vitality and strong voice throughout the range.
    The volume and quickness of sound are with the modern player in mind and at sensible pricing.
