Robert Ruck is one of the most recognized names today in the USA and has had a very prolific career, having built over a thousand instruments to date. 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.
