Welcome to Indian Hill Guitars!

With each Indian Hill Guitar I strive to achieve the optimal balance between sound, aesthetics, and structural integrity without compromising any of the three. From the internal braces to the fretwork and finish, no detail is too small and only the highest quality work acceptable. My goal as a builder is to handcraft beautiful heritage quality instruments tailored to meet your individual needs as a player and exceed your expectations as to what a guitar can be.

During a three year apprenticeship with master guitar maker Sergei de Jonge I not only acquired the necessary skills and practical knowledge required to build world class guitars, but also saw the importance of applying an optimistic outlook and humor when building. It is my belief and hope that the love I take in building will translate into inspiration and joy for you the player!

"I love my Indian Hill OO-13! Beyond the obvious highest level craftmanship, it is also a truly unique guitar. It's a steel string instrument, but it has the sensitivity of a nylon string and the punchiness of a Maccaferri. It also plays like a dream!"

Jonathan Kreisberg, solo jazz guitarist and member of Dr. Lonnie Smith Trio on his Indian Hill OO-13


"The best way to describe the tone from this guitar is 'unrestrained acoustic tonal bliss'. This is the kind of tonal magic that inspires an artist to create original music and I am so grateful to have it in my hands!

J.R.Rogers, founder and owner of the Acoustic Guitar Forum on his OO-12


"This Kauri/Sitka Concert is superb. I could easily play this as my main guitar, I enjoy it that much. Very special..."

Paul Heumiller of Dream Guitars


"I was gob smacked by the first guitar I had from Mike, I am double gob smacked this time. This is one of the loudest guitars I've ever heard but it has depth and subtlety too. From the lowest bass note to the the highest treble, each note has perfect definition and clarity with a full and strong tone. Wether playing the most delicate fingerstyle or going for it with a pick this beauty takes it in its stride. Incredible."

Trevor Moyle of The Acoustic Music Company


"After twenty years of searching for the one guitar, the reliable medium to consistently deliver tone and playability without question, Mike Kennedy and Indian Hill Guitars have given me the answer. It always sounds good, and it is always lighting the way to new possibilities in my playing. I love this guitar, I can't say it enough."

Mike O"Brien, guitarist and member of The Sin and The Swoon


"This is the beginning of something incredible. This guitar is without a doubt one of the finest guitars I have ever played in my life. It is amazing and I have a funny feeling you will be reading more about this guitar while Iím cast under itís seductive sonic spell."

Kevin Hennig of SymphonTree Music
