I haven't played a Signature - only the Rodriguez - and while I did like the sound, I do agree with Alexis -I was not crazy about the feel of that guitar either. The neck felt a little chunky to me. Sorry I can't be of more help.Alexis wrote:I just played his signature series on Saturday, he was down here @ the montreal guitar show. He is a gentleman, very cool guy. I was not impressed with his guitars though, I played them all including the signature series and I found them a bit quiet. I wasn't crazy about the feel either.
I understand that Kenny does have a preference for D'Addario strings and uses them for his Master and Signature guitars. In a couple of conversations with him at his shop, I got the distinct impression that he doesn't like bright strings like Savarez.Alexis wrote:It could very well be that the strings were not adequate. I don't remember what he had on them...
No, mine is a cedar top. By the way, my guitar sounds also great with D'addario Hard Tension (not the composite, but the regular nylon)bargavm wrote:Alexis, I can't begin to tell you how bad Mr. Hill's string choice for the "Fleta" is! The difference switching from D'Addario to Savarez was really night and day.
E.Zurcher -- is your "Fleta" a spruce top by any chance? I hear Mr. Hill uses Hannabach Goldins as his standard for the spruce tops.
We use D'Addario J46 High tension strings, not because we think they are the *best* strings. The rationale for doing so is, as stated above; the D'Addario are available most everywhere, they provide a baseline consistency most of the time for us in evaluating each guitar and, so far, we feel our guitars present well with them.I send the guitars out with high tension strings...
...We always put high tension strings on the guitar, but I don't have an opinion on whether that is the best choice. Each person finds out for themselves. I suggest trying a variety of string brands and tensions to come up with the right combination for your own technique and your own guitar. - Kenny Hill
Try one, if you can. The best guitar is the one in your hands which meets your needs and desires.any feedback on the signature im looking to buy?
