Moving on toward the second decade of the Signature model's success at being a celebrated modern guitar, we're offering the lower priced New Century Model, replacing its predecessor, PERFORMANCE model, now made in China.
The Century model is designed for the player desiring the benefits of extraordinary sound & playability with the lattice bracing, doubletop and ported features of the SIGNATURE.
The NEW CENTURY SERIES is built in our California shop using the best hand selected tone woods from around the world. Each guitar is built and finished by hand with meticulous attention to detail.
While we pride ourselves on the unique and beautiful look of our instruments, perhaps more important is the range and quality of the sound a player can create, and the physical ease of playing.
The Standard Century is available with CITES certified East Indian Rosewood back and sides.
For over 40 years Hill Guitar Company has been known for building the best
instruments at affordable prices, and The New CENTURY SERIES is no exception; essentially these guitars are a work of art providing a lifetime's ejoyment in the livingroom or the concert hall. You need look no further to play a beautiful guitar with a rich warm traditional sound.
As you might expect they play great, have great projection and the traditional sound you've been looking for.
