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 and still active. Perhaps the most famous of his output is the 70's guitar owned by Manuel Barrueco which was used on nearly all of his classic recordings. This instrument, dating from the same era, 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 – apart from some well-repaired cracks on the body, the guitar is in great shape, and plays easily. Overall a fantastic instrument – Rucks from this great period almost never enter the market so this is a rare opportunity for both collector and player alike.
