This jumbo guitar is owned by three time Winfield winner and internationally known performer, teacher and creator of the Kaufman Acoustic Kamp. This is what Steve has to say about "Hunnert."
"I've owned many guitars in my musical career: Collings, Martins, Taylors, Gallaghers and now I own a cherrished Ken Miller Guitar. It is the most beautiful of all the guitars I have ever owned. Made of a figured Babinga African tonewood for the back and sides and Red Spruce top and braces. But beauty is only skin deep.
Ken's building skills are among the top few in the world. Coupled with Virginia's ability to create imaginative and intricate inlay patterns. They have crafted my guitar for beauty and to have the most even and balanced tone possible. It has the punch and volume of an old herringbone and the warmth and grace of a Ramirez classical. Whatever sound, whatever song, whatever tone I need, I can find it in my Ken Miller Guitar."
