And, here's why...



Not only is this guitar beautiful and mechanically
smooth and effortless to play, but, the tone is great
and sustain (in my opinion) is second to none.

A long wait, but one that was well worth it !!

And, Gary is a super guy to work with. Thanx Gary

You are so right! There are a small handfull of guitars that come close mechanically - but NONE has the amazing tone of a Rittenberry. I absolutely LOVE my Ritt - my other guitars are jealous!

Maybe I should order another one while I can still get one.....

Thanks again Gary - I am very grateful.

Congrats Scott!

Beautiful Steel. I'd rather invest in a Ritt then Real-Estate!

Scott, I read your post this afternoon, as I was waiting for the Fedex guy to deliver my new Rittenberry. It's here now and it's a beauty!! So, I know how you feel. I will get some pictures of mine tomorrow. Gary sure does nice work!

Amazing looking Rittenberry...bet it sounds and plays like butter!

I just picked up my new Ritt from my teacher's place yesterday...I only took delivery of it a day before going away overseas and I had my first lesson and brought it home yesterday so now I have it and even my teacher who has made his living off being a professional steel player his whole life (and he's bloody good) said that after spending time playing it and setting it up while I was overseas (I got him a nice bottle of scotch for doing so) he thinks it's one of the nicest guitars he's ever seen. Very precise action and beautiful sound. He plays and owns a Sho-Bud LDG.

The Rittenberry is amazing. Solid precise build quality in every way, the pedals are easy and precise, and the finish and tone on it are beautiful. I haven't played that many steels myself, but I'm pretty sure I've got one of the best there is and dammit I'm going to take it to my grave! (hopefully not for a few years yet).
