Micah Nicol, guitarist for The Ruta Beggars, has been gigging and recording with the mahogany and Adirondack spruce dreadnought I built with an optional adjustable tone port. From bluegrass to solo settings, he’s put the guitar through the paces, and here are some of his thoughts:
“It is obvious that these guitars are made with pride, precision, and passion. Each sliver of wood and alloy on this instrument is thoughtfully and carefully honed and placed. This attention to detail makes the guitar easy to fret and make a boisterously full sound; one with unparalleled sustain (it just keeps ringing)!
The adjustable tone port is particularly useful for when I need just a little boost. I use it like an 'analog' volume pedal for taking solos or making sure I cut through a live mix on a guitar-centric part of a song. It's also just cool to see the inside of the guitar and the 'backstage' view of your hand strumming the strings.” -- Micah
If you love great music, you should check out Micah on whichever choice of social media you prefer. He’s s truly talented and versatile musician. His band, The Ruta Beggars, lays down some killer bluegrass with some of the best harmonies around. I’m truly honored to have a guitar I’ve built used on their latest recordings and can’t wait for its release.
