Hill Guitar Company

Headstock featuring Mother of Pearl inlay

Premium Brazilian Rosewood Back and Sides

Western red cedar, Nomex, European spruce


40th Anniversary Model

I've been thinking about this ideal Signature model for a while, with beautiful woods, jewel-like tuners, wonderful aromatic finish, nice decoration, custom ergonomics, and an ideal guitar case. Now we have this for a limited time, and I have to say, it is wonderful!

The Brazilian rosewood gives a delicious other world quality of sound, and the guitar is fully adjusted to any player's needs. These guitars are special order only. I expect them to go to special hands, persons and professionals who can appreciate the value and the personal touch.
