Our PLAYER Series guitars are our premiere line of instruments. These guitars were conceived to be the absolute best quality instruments you can acquire at a competitive price. Suitable for serious students and serious players alike.

The PLAYER Series features hand-selected solid spruce or Western red cedar soundboards producing richer bass, distinct trebles and the powerful projection players are seeking. Back and sides are beautiful solid Indian rosewood; Ebony fingerboard and Spanish Cedar necks. Nut and saddle are bone, and every instrument contains a double acting truss rod in the neck.

Full-size models are available in 650mm and 640mm string lengths. Smaller bodied guitars are available in 628mm and 615mm.

Cutaways are currently available in 650mm string length: with either standard neck width 52mm or narrow-neck Fingerstyle 48mm. In 2017, the string length on these will change to 640mm and the fingerboard will be radiused.


We have been porting Hill Guitars for well over a decade now because it gives the player a better sense of how the guitar sounds, and it increases the output of the guitar. We think of it as helping the guitar reach its sound potential. For a modest charge, we will port our Player models. As noted above the ELEVATED PLAYER has sound ports as a standard.

While students will find the price attractive, any level player will find everything about these guitars to be first-class.
