Gerber Guitars Build Update

Incoming Guitars from the immense talent of Ryan Gerber of Gerber Guitars, Canton, Ohio...

Last year you may remember all of us here at TNAG Hq, being incredibly pleased about the signing of new luthier talent Ryan Gerber to The North American Guitar roster. He delivered to us two absolutely exceptional instruments that far surpassed our (already high) expectation, an RL15 in Swiss Spruce & Macassar Ebony and a jaw droping RL15+ in Swiss Spruce & Figured Mahogany. Needless to say, the guitars did not hang around, in fact so much so one never made it to us here at the showroom and the other went within 48 hours of the beautiful demonstration our good friend Mike Dawes did the day it arrived! 

Whatever 'it' is ... Ryan has 'it'! His guitars have a perfect blend of modern lutherie with a touch of vintage look and feel, his lines are subtle and yet unique and his craftsmanship is stunning to the eye and beautifully detailed. Both the RL15 and the RL15+ we ordered had a signature tone that spoke as soon as the first note was plucked, something that is not easy to find. 

Here is what guitar session player and TNAG demoing artists Jimmy Owen had to say about the RL15 Swiis Spruce & Macassar Ebony...

"I am absolutely blown away by this instrument, what strikes me the most is the balance of its frequencies. The highs are sweet and flute-like with a rich and velvety bass, none of which are overpowering. It covers all the major territory for me, punching through for fingerstyle yet harp-like on its strumming attack, the feel in the hand is silky and the access to the upper frets is seamless. The guitar itself is nothing shy of a work of art, it’s aesthetically stunning and the attention to detail is out of this world. This instrument just keeps you coming back for more and inspires each time you pick it up..."  Jimmy Owen - Session Player / LETHBRIDGE OWEN

After the success of the first two orders and the overwhelming demand for Ryan's work, we decided to pull out all the stops and order four absolutely knock out guitars in our next incoming batch; not only show support for this juggernaut of a young luthier but to also to offer you our (TNAG) customers the chance to get ahead of the queue of Ryan's already growing waiting list...
