Hill "Signature" guitars are custom-made using the most up-to-date designs, methods and materials to produce the highest quality sound, playability and beauty. The current "Signature" Model features a "double top" (pioneered originally by by Dammann, Wagner, and others) composed of a Nomex core (an ultra light cell structure), "sandwiched" between two very thin layers of cedar (on the underside) and spruce (on the outside). This makes for an extremely light and efficient soundboard, but is domed in such a way as to maximizes stiffness at the same time - very important for both the sound quality and structural stability. Outwardly it seems just like a normal spruce soundboard. This technique is borrowed from ultra light aviation technology. It is braced using a lightweight system of lattices for a durable but flexible system. Other features include dual soundports and raised fingerboard. Although a used guitar, it is in excellent condition with only a few minor blemishes in on the top. These sell new for $7750 so this is an excellent value for an "almost new" guitar from this respected maker.

A hardshell case is included with this guitar.
