Description

If the first R.1 we got from Tyler slayed us, this latest R.1ca resurrected us! Absurdly gorgeous Cocobolo back and sides, Engelmann Spruce top, Ebony bindings; that's just the tip of the iceberg. Tyler garnished the bass lower bout with a bold arm bevel, infused the segmented rosette with Cocobolo, added a Florentine Cutaway, and inlaid the back and endgraft with “sunken” Cocobolo veneers that are below the surface of the surrounding wood and filled in with clear epoxy. The effect is three-dimensional and allows the inset Cocobolo to really pop.


The voice. Oh, the voice. Excellent responsiveness, a little crackle in the bass for extra definition, an impressive panoply of overtones in the upper mids and trebles to flesh out chords. Even under a light attack, this R.1ca offers lush notes and heady sustain. And it’s still brand new!


To say we’re impressed would be an understatement. In fact, we managed to sell this guitar before Tyler even finished it! As such, this beauty is no longer available, but we’ll definitely have more Robbins in the shop in the future.

I'm very impressed with Tyler's artistic execution, and he backs that up with a very responsive and dynamic voice. Incredible.
