Winner announced July 15.
2017 Hill Custom Golden Coast
BACK to SHOWROOM
This is a new 650mm Custom Locally Sourced California Redwood soundboard with Black Acacia back and sides. The rosette design was inspired by the morning glory flowers and leaves that grow in abundance locally on backyard fences.
To honor the local nature of the Santa Cruz Art of Guitar, Kenny designed a special guitar made entirely of woods that grow in Santa Cruz County or nearby. Tickets to win this guitar will be sold throughout the event.
A typical guitar generally contains woods gathered from four or five continents. As traditional guitar woods have become increasingly scarce and protected, a movement is growing among guitar makers to seek out quality materials from sustainable sources. With this instrument, Hill Guitar hopes to demonstrate the potential of some of the woods growing all around us to be used in the building of fine instruments.
