Ruben Guitars 'The Distinction' OM AAA Sitka / Master Grade Brazilian Kingwood Acoustic Electric Guitar

1 only in stock

Hand-made by a master luthier here in Melbourne, Australia,  Ruben Guitars have a reputation for crafting exceptional acoustic guitars with stunning clarity, remarkable resonance, and incredible attention to detail. Acoustic Centre is proud to be an exclusive dealer for Ruben Guitars.

This fantastic OM features a premium Alaskan AAA Sitka Spruce top, with back-and-sides of Brazilian Bloodwood, a rare rosewood harvested from the Atlantic Forest in Brazil. Other premium features include a one-piece Honduran Mahogany neck, African Ebony fingerboard and bridge, Flamed Maple binding, bone nut and saddle, Abalone Shell inlays and high-ratio Gotoh 510 tuners. The guitar is finished with an ultra-fine gloss nitrocellulouse finish, with a satin-finished neck.

Brazilian Kingswood is an extremely rare rosewood, with a similar bell-like tone to Brazilian Rosewood. It exhibits striking violet and black streaks, and is an exceptional tonewood for acoustic instruments.

This OM has all the sustain and volume that Ruben Guitars are known for, and responds beautifully to the lightest of touch. The Brazilian Kingwood back-and-sides are visually stunning, and give the guitar a refined, clear tone with a thick, warm bass and incredible overtones. Includes an LR Baggs Element pickup and ships in a Hiscox Pro flight case.
