2013 Hill Torres 1856 Flamed Maple 640mm - USED LIKE NEW

ITEM #3731

$4000 includes original arched case
End of an Era

BACK to SHOWROOM

Truly unique, this Torres 1856 features solid Flamed Maple back and sides. 640mm string length with Sloane ebony Leaf tuners. It comes with its original custom arched hardshell case. It plays, looks and sounds beautiful. Shorter stringlength and smaller body size for players with smaller hands or limited reach.

This one appears to have never been played. While absolutely nothing needed to be done to this guitar, it has been checked out, and adheres to our shop spec. Did I mention it sounds terrific?

This was one of a pair. These 2 were the last production models made by the Hill Company. In 2013 we made 6 of these, and every one of them exhibited qualities both in build, materials and sound superior to any we've ever made. A nice finale on this model.

If we were to build one of these today, price would be $6500.
