2003 Robert Ruck CD/CO
|Back & Sides:
Robert Ruck is one of the most recognized names today in the USA and has had a very prolific career, having built many hundreds of instruments to date and still going strong. Perhaps the most famous of his output is the guitar owned by Manuel Barrueco which was used on nearly all of his classic recordings. This instrument features beautiful cocobolo for the back and sides, and is fitted with his soundports in the upper area of the sides. It is a superb guitar in all respects. It has very a firm, solid tone, which feels deeply anchored to the fundamental of each pitch while the hum of the higher partials adds a beautiful texture to the body of the sound. Volume is surprisingly loud, this guitar could fill a large concert hall with minimal effort from the player. Condition is excellent, in 'like-new' condition – overall a fantastic instrument.
