Concert guitar made by World-wide famous guitar maker Kenny Hill, La Curva Guitar is the perfect combination of a refined
classical concert guitar and a crossover one.
La Curva is an excellent, concert grade, hand made nylon string guitar, featuring a narrower neck and cutaway.
Built in the classic style of Herman Hauser I, this model guitar has excellent clarity, projection, and beauty of sound.
The classic body shape makes it a very friendly guitar to handle and a very comfortable instrument to play.
They are wonderful for players who need extra access to the highest notes on the fingerboard; flamenco players who capo up
higher, bossa nova and jazz players
- anyone who wants the advantage and styling of a beautiful, concert-quality cutaway.
Most steel string players have never played a truly fine nylon string guitar, or if they have, the width of the classical
neck can be uncomfortable for a non-classical player.
The beauty of nylon strings is in the tone colors they produce,
and the light weight construction and finesse of building bring these colors out.
Sound board: Englemann spruce
Back & sides: Indian rosewood
Neck: Spanish cedar
String length: 650mm
Kenny Hill is a widely recognized name in the world of
