A second spruce top from Michael Ritchie. This time with a standard 7 fan bracing.

This guitar has a wonderfully warm feel to it - you just want to hug it and not put it down. It feels quite gentle in your hands but there is an immense amount of power, projection, sustain in what at first appears quite an innocent little guitar. Great dynamic range as can be expected from Michael's guitars and a feeling of real musicality which grows the more it is played.

The video below was produced and performed by renowned Scottish guitarist Matthew McAllister in May 2012 and features this Michel Ritchie guitar.
