Stephen Hill is an English luthier based in Granada, Spain. His inspiring career brought him from being a talented flamenco guitarist to building the finest Spanish guitars that can be found on the market nowadays. His inspiration came from both legendary luthiers and legendary guitarists with whom he built close relationships and friendships. Among others, one can name Antonio Marin Montero, Paco Pena, Manuel Reyes, etc. Stephen Hill builds fantastic Spanish guitars. His passion for the guitar seems extremely strong and he passes his knowledge on to some talented students from whom we have also received skilfully built guitars.
This beautiful instrument numbered 245 is actually our first double top that we receive from Stephen Hill and one can immediately notice the difference to his traditionally built model. This spruce double-top has a distinguished power. There is a lot of reverb and sustain coming from each string, which makes the guitar very inspiring to play on. Back and sides are made of gorgeous CITES certified Brazilian rosewood that one visually drowns in. Due to the big sonorous voice of this instrument, the player can easily change dynamics without making a big effort and this Stephen Hill sounds distinctly open for a new guitar. The neck is perfectly shaped so that the left-hand can move smoothly and relaxed. A Hiscox case is included in the price.
