Description


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's approach marries a fresh, tasteful aesthetic with a pianistic 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.

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.
 
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.
