Three-piece backs

Flush-to-the-heel Cutaway

Arm Bevel

Adjustable Neck

During my time working with Sergei de Jonge I built several "Jazz Guitars" -- unique nylon string guitars with an adjustable neck system he developed. I've taken the basics of his design and applied it to steel strings. Through a discrete hole in the heel of the neck, a player can use an allen key to quickly raise the height of the strings for slide playing, lower for delicate finger picking, or find whatever action suits their needs.

"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


"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
