Description

Quick and lively, but with an added element of darkness and bass articulation, this 1976 Flamenca Blanca from Robert Ruck offers a rich playing experience that works for both solo and accompaniment work. Cypress back and sides with Spruce, top, 657mm scale, and Ruck finished the body with catalyzed urethane, electing to save French Polish for the top to promote maximum resonance. Original Ebony friction pegs have been freshly oiled and work fantasticall, contributing to the overlal featherweight construction--this Ruck Flamenco weighs under three pounds.
