I've owned a couple of Hill instruments, both built in the early Paracho years, when quality was pretty high. The Barcelona (Fleta) model was lovely, with a very special dark and beautiful tone. The Munich (Hauser) was purchased from RE Brune, who thinks well of that model and has lots of building experience of his own! It was also a fine instrument, for which I paid about $2000, in 2000. The Munich models, either from CA or from Paracho are frequently available for around $1500, on e - b a y. The newer Hauser '37 is reputedly a fine instrument but since it falls in a different price bracket, the competition is very stiff, which makes the early comment re value for the money, more reasonable. New, the Hill '37's are running $3500-$4500 (Indian and Brazilian). There is a Brazilian model on e - b a y now, which looks beautiful and is being sold by a very experienced player/composer (Millenium Guitars). However, there are a great many other fine instruments available in that price range. Personally, I probably would not spend that much on a Hill Master. I paid less than $3000 for a stunning Bernabe model from Darren Hippner, with raised fingerboard, sound ports, and the finest stump Brazilian I've seen. While many believe that Hippner's guitars are great values, even when purchased directly from him, on the used market they are even better values. I also bought a twelve year old Traphagen for less than $4000; a very powerful and beuatiful instrument.
Take your time and look around. GSI carries lots of guitars. You'll pay full retail, I imagine, but you'll know what your'e getting. Best of luck.
