The first thing that strikes about the 650S is the impressive definition. We see this as a common characteristic in all Kenny Hill guitars. This instrument has so many features, so many artisan techniques built in it, that we find ourselves constantly discovering new possibilities in sound and performance.

The top enables a good response and a bright clean tone. The middle range is full and the tone is deep. You can expect an excellent articulation and intonation, difficult to find at this price range. Sustain is also another great quality.

Add To Cart

We met Kenny at the Miami International Guitar Festival in 2016. He was very kind and explicative about his craft.  We learned a lot from him and it was very easy to begin this relationship.

This instrument has a slimmer neck so it´s very friendly on the left hand. It has a truss rod and an elevated fingerboard. The 650S Player Series has two holes in the rims that enable the guitarist to hear himself much better and, as Kenny explained to us, they allow the guitar to behave as a lung and breath. The feeling playing it is breathtaking.

We recommend this guitar to any serious musician, aficionado or beginning professional.  

Strung with Paulino Bernabé strings – obviously.


KENNY HILL GUITARS AT SAVINO MUSIC

In 1995 he was invited to Paracho, Mexico as a writer for Acoustic Guitar magazine to cover a master class given by Jose Romanillos for the guitar makers of Paracho. Getting to know both the master Romanillos and the fine guitar makers of Paracho he began to think about what could be done if they had access to better materials, more information, and marketing to the US market. In 1996 he set up a workshop employing some of the fine craftsmen of Paracho, bringing in higher quality materials from the outside and developing a market for these guitars for the next 5 years.
