Straight from the bench to the 2017 Artisan Guitar Show, then onto Dream Guitars to kick start one of our newest builder relationships--we've got our first R.1 from luthier Tyler Robbins. Tyler approach marries a fresh, tasteful aesthetic with a pianisitic voicing that fingerstylists everywhere will appreciate. This R.1 has a medium-sized body with a 15 7/8" lower bout and a slightly shallow C profile neck with a glass-smooth playability, which makes for an instrument which is easy on the hands and doesn't scrimp on projection or sustain.

Robbins picked a dark set of Indian Rosewood for the back and sides (and inlaid the headstock and rosette to match) and paired it with a creamy, tight-grained Engelmann Spruce top for the smooth string-to-string balance that characterizes the R.1's voice. A 13-fret neck ratchets up the sweetness a pinch, and dropping into DADGAD and beyond that sweetness remained intact, even bloomed. We're excited to offer this gem for the first time here! We'll have a blog post coming out soon where Tyler answers some questions about his build process and aesthetics, so be sure to check our blog to keep up.

New Robbins Acoustics R.1 -  Acoustic Guitar Player Reviews

Player Reviews:

"Great play feel, and I'm also impressed by the overall balance. This is a relatively light guitar which plays easily and has an understated modern aesthetic. " - Paul Heumiller

"Nice balance and beautiful appointments set this guitar apart from the crowd. It's got a warm but clear tone that is very satisfying as a fingerstylist, but I also like the strummed sound." - Al Petteway
