Description

We first began working with Michael Kennedy, the luthier behind Indian Hill Guitars, back in the infancy of his company's name. Michael apprenticed to renowned Canadian luthier Sergei De Jonge, and has gone on to do increasingly impressive work. This latest piece is one that we espied and tried at the Memphis Acoustic Guitar Festival and absolutely had to have in the shop. And when we brought it back to record, it was Al Petteway's pick of the day--even when pitted against more than ten other Dream Guitars we had him play. This Grand Concert pairs the warm, open tone of Western Red Cedar with the dry, reflective voice of Claro Walnut. In Michael's hands, these two woods have truly become more than the sum of their parts. This is an instrument that plays effortlessly. It will interpret and sing and dance along with your slightest movements, sounding ample and satisfying and whole. The soundport really puts the player directly into the sound--which means you hear every shimmering, nuanced note that you play. It handles altered tunings like a champion, thanks to its slight Multiscale design with 25.39" on the trebles and 26" on the bass, but the 0.6" difference is so slight that you never even notice it as you're playing. Add to that a Macassar Ebony arm bevel for added player comfort, an elevated neck, and soundport, and you've got a guitar with every option available. This is the kind of guitar that, once picked up, simply won't be put back down for a long, long time.

I have to hand it to Michael--his craftsmanship and his voice have been rapidly growing and this thing is a monster of a guitar. We've had his instruments in here before and been impressed by them, but this one has truly blown us away with its voice.
 
Indian Hill guitars have been coming into the shop lately and I have to say they are really impressive. This one would be an all around great guitar and the elevated fingerboard makes access to the upper part of the fret board much easier, much like a cutaway.
