MICHAEL RITCHIE 2021 Spruce/ Australian Blackwood

This astoundingly beautiful guitar from Michael Ritchie represents the very best of his craft. Looking at the striking tones of the rare Australian blackwood allied with the exceptional spruce top invite us to anticipate a wonderful playing experience. And it certainly does not disappoint. The musicality of Michael's guitars is what I think strikes us on first playing. It is just so full of possibilities and the ease of playing seems to suggest ways of phrasing. There is ample room to expand the player's musical imagination
While the plantilla follows the guitars of Enrique Sanfeliu Michael includes some lovely modern design details such as the beautiful hand made rosette and his own design of Rodgers tuners.
