Here’s a cool guitar – apparently the story is that Robert Ruck owned a Marcelo Barbero that for some reason he had to sell, so he decided to make himself a copy, and this is that guitar. I had never played a Ruck, so I didn’t have any expectations one way or the other, but I kind of love this guitar. It’s got a lot of that old world charm, but it’s deep and punchy and it records like a dream. Here’s me noodling in the Rondeña tuning (D A E F# B E).

    Kai, I’m sure you have played the real 1950 M. Barbero, and it appears that Ruck got this right… Can you compare this 16 year-old guitar with your (GSI) 1950, in tone, projection, and action? Thanks, mb

    I am pretty sure I played this guitar in 1995 at the GAL convention. Robert had a few blancas with him and this was my favorite. Its been a while but I remember it well.
