2017 Aaron Ringo

Woods: figured Macassar ebony back and sides, cedar over cedar double top. Brazilian rosewood bridge, Spanish cedar neck. Spalted rosette with wheat motif inlay, including the binding.  French polish shellac throughout.

Specs: 650mm scale, 52mm nut, raised fingerboard with slight radius. Alessi tuners, Hiscox case.

Comment:  Aaron Ringo is a young Texas luthier who has hit the sweet spot with his acclaimed double top guitars. The strings in the sound sample are hard tension Savarez Alliance and the crisp energy this guitar possesses is remarkable. Very bright trebles and punchy bass/midrange response. With the radius in the raised fingerboard, left hand effort is minimal, while the guitar can be pushed with the right hand. This is a thoroughbred of double tops and it draws out the best in the player.

One also takes note of the superb workmanship. The wheat motif inlay in the rosette, binding, and tie block are eye catching, tastefully executed.

See the Ringo spruce double top, also on the Chartwell site.
