IH OO

I am a big fan of little guitars and was incredibly excited to develop my own take on a OO. While larger body shapes have their merits, I just love sitting back and relaxing with a smaller guitar. With a balance and note clarity you expect from a OO, this little guitar is a fingerpicker's dream. Don't let the smaller size fool you though -- OO's have some real power behind them!

IH CONCERT

The Indian Hill Concert model was the first shape I developed on my own as a luthier. I wanted a mid-sized guitar with flowing lines and graceful transitions that would sit comfortably in the player's hands. The result has been overwhelmingly successful! The Concert model can be a powerful instrument with a surprising presence for its medium size while maintaining a clarity and balance more typical of a smaller guitar.

IH F-HOLE

F-holes are typically found on carved top instruments -- violins, mandolins, and, of course, archtop guitars.  In this case, I've adapted my bracing and construction to utilize f-holes on a flat-top (similar to my other models).  The original idea for these guitars was born out of a deep love for the music of Gillian Welch and David Rawlings and an attempt to squish his old archtop and her flat-top into one.  I'm beyond pleased with how these sound -- the throatiness and cut of an archtop with the sustain and body of a flat-top in a totally unique instrument!  

Typically I've used my OO model when building with f-holes, but any of my shapes can be adapted for some f-hole loveliness!

IH GRAND CONCERT

This is the newest shape I have to offer and is the biggest powerhouse of the bunch. With more elegant curves than a dreadnought and subtler lines than a jumbo, this is my largest model with a big sound just begging to be flatpicked or played with some full-bodied fingerstyle.

IH TENOR

In the evolution of the modern guitar, tenors were introduced in the 1920's as the missing link between the banjo and guitar. They provided banjo players with a feel they were accustomed to but with the voice of a guitar. With four strings typically tuned in fifths (similar to instruments in the violin family) and a shorter scale length, the Indian Hill Tenor is a fantastic way to expand your sonic palette, inspire new musical ideas and is simply a joy to play!  I have also begun to offer a 6-string version of this model in standard tuning -- you will be blown away at the volume and richness in such a small bodied instrument!
