Robert Ruck personal comments:
Eduardo, thank you for reaching out. This is my #21 guitar, it was made for Bill Pope in 1970. I last heard from Bill some years ago and he was living in Pompano Beach according to a telephone message he left me. Indeed it is a Flamenco Blanca in the style of the great Spanish makers Barbero, Domingo Esteso and Santos Hernandez whose work I was quite familiar with. I did live in Miami where I built guitars up to 1973. I wish you well and much enjoyment of this wonderful guitar. Robert Ruck 08/01/2014
The 1970 Robert Ruck Flamenco Blanca is in GREAT good condition. It has a very responsive German spruce board, perfect straight ebony fingerboard, and cedar neck, warm and balanced sound, with a strong fundamental tone. The guitar is very light and low action with an impeccable neck profile. The pliability of the instrument is just superb.
The Ruck 1970 Flamenco Blanca has two professionally repaired hair-lines on the lower part of the top. The saddle has been rerouted with six additional holes ( Total of 12 wholes ) for a better string hold and tone. by Luthier Jorge de Sofia now residing in Sevilla. The guitar has been kept in ideal temperature and humidity conditions for the last 30 years. The Robert Ruck 1970 Flamenco Blanca comes with its original hardshell case and an extra set of Conde Strings. For more images, videos, or other information please inquire. The buyer pays shipping costs. Suggested to Guitar Collectors, and Vintage Guitar lovers.
