Extremely rare 1974 Robert Ruck concert classical guitar. Brazilian Rosewood, ebony fretboard, cedar top. Round, dark, rich and powerful sound. 664mm scale.
Robert Ruck is considered to be one of the top American Luthiers. His waiting list is extremely long, and in fact he is not longer taking orders. The waiting period for those lucky to get in is 7 years. Some of them retail between 12K and 17K. Several of the world's top concert players play Ruck Guitars, including the guitar in which Manuel Barrueco chooses to record with, a 1972 guitar in many ways similar to the one offered here.
These guitar is in good condition but be aware that it has several visible scratches on the top and back. It has also a fine crack on the lower part of the fretboard that stretches about 2.5 inches, but it stopped growing 5 years ago and has not affected the sound. There is also a barely visible hairline crack on the top next to the top side of the fretboard. I can provide several closer pictures of all of these.
If you are in New York, please feel free to make an appointment with me to try it out. It is a very special instrument that deserves to be in the hands of somebody who uses it more than I have in the past few years.
