Robert Ruck (1945-2018) was a prolific and respected American luthier. His guitars were particularly known thanks to Manuel Barrueco and Shin-ichi Fukuda, who both recorded on Ruck’s guitars. Moreover, Robert Ruck had a strong personality as well as an immense love for musical instruments, and he deeply marked the history of guitar making in the United States of America.
This particular 2013 Robert Ruck guitar is in incredibly good condition. Free of cracks, not showing any kind of wear at all and looks just as new. The nickel-silver engraved tuners are from Rodgers and a first quality spruce top was chosen for this instrument. The serial number as well as the building year and Robert Ruck’s signature are can be found inside the guitar written on the top.
This instrument is more than beautiful looking and highly collectible guitar, but above all a breath-taking concert guitar. It has a mature tone with a perfect balance, powerful voice and almost endless seeming sustain. The deep rounded basses unite perfectly with the overtone-rich trebles and the sound has a great charm and openness. Overall, it is a guitar that will please the ears and the heart of its lucky player and audience.
