New Indian Hill Grand Concert Indian/Sitka
SOLDAdd to Compare
We consider ourselves lucky when an Indian Hill guitar comes to our shop. Michael Kennedy‘s craftmanship is superb, and his aesthetic tastes are unquestionably sound. This Grand Concert Prototype was made in 2012 and has some juicy features to set it apart. For starters, Kennedy has included a soundport in the upper bout of the Indian Rosewood sides to provide the musician with instantaneous feedback from their playing, and the Sitka Spruce top is bound in Indian Rosewood which has a slight bevel to it, making the entire body of the guitar smooth to the touch and comfortable to play. The inlay on the Ebony bridge is stunning, as is the custom rosette–Kennedy‘s appointments are perfectly mated to the color palette of the Sitka Spruce and Indian Rosewood. This guitar practically plays itself. The action is perfect, and the guitar holds up well in dropped tunings, maintaining its great articulation even in DADGAD or C# tuning. Kennedy also added one of his trademark options, an elevated neck, which serves two purposes, 1) increasing the pulling tension of the strings on the bridge, which translates into a more efficient energy transmission and a more powerful sound, and 2) allowing the player to reach higher frets without the use of a cutaway. Lastly, as with all Indian Hill guitars, this Grand Concert Prototype has a traditional French polish, or varnish, which yields a thinner finish to let the tonewoods vibrate more freely and creates one of the smoothest surfaces in the world of lutherie.
