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 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. Playability is a breeze with a very comfortably shaped, easy neck. Condition is excellent. Overall a fantastic instrument.
