Like new! 2016 Robert Ruck
Top: Cedar/Fan Braced
Back and sides: Rosewood
The rich warm colorful cedar tone is reminiscent of the Manuel Barrueco recordings on his Ruck, same rich clarity and expressive voice. The back and sides are of such incredible Indian Rosewood that you almost take a second look to be sure it is not Brazilian. Both used a Brazilian Rosewood bridge, his favorite for tone, and a gorgeous Ziricote veneer on the headstock, along with one of my favorite Ruck Rosette’s. In addition he used a great set of Gotoh tuners, and added an elevated fret board. Finish is synthetic varnish. This fabulous Ruck also comes with a custom fit Karura carbon fiber travel case.
I have not seen as fine an example of a Ruck for sale for quite a while, simply flawless.
