This is a beautiful new Kenny Hill Torres 640mm, parlor size, #2637 - designed for the player with smaller hands, a shorter reach or just desiring a smaller body size.

This guitar, damaged slightly in shipping, was returned and, has now been repaired. Damage to the bass side of the lower bout binding edge, the repair is virtually invisible. The damage did not effect the sound, playability or structural integrity of this guitar. If you are worried about such things, please don't consider this guitar. Consequently this guitar is discounted $250.00 - with a free case - value $175.

This model was originally based on the FE12 (1854) design found in the Romanillos book, the progenitor of modern classical guitar. Kenny Hill had the good fortune to have a Torres guitar come into the shop for repair, also dated 1854. With this guitar available for direct measurement and notation of its decoration; purflings and rosette, the Hill Torres model was retooled to be a replica of this unique guitar. The sound of the Hill Torres model is strikingly similar to the original Torres guitars, so you will have a new guitar with a lengthy history!

This guitar sounds incredible. It has plenty of projection (volume) and the quality of its sound is sweet and rich. I happen to really like these guitars. Without a lot of verbiage that's hard to translate into musical sound qualities, let me say, this guitar is one of the few that speaks immediately to me as something special.

These guitars may be small in size, but are as loud as any full-sized instrument, and once it's broken in - it will compete with the best of them...I guarantee this.

There's a very even balanced tone and very pronounced bass, which will provide hours of pleasure and entertainment. This is a very fine instrument offering a lifetime of enjoyment for a serious player, professional, student or enthusiast seeking a unique guitar. If I get my act together, I'll post a sound file of me beating on it, so you can get a sense of it.

It's size is unusual and very appealing. While it's appropriate for smaller players, it's also very popular with guys who might otherwise not play a 'little guitar.'
