Gorgeous guitar, particularly the EIR, looks like BRAZ. Good luck with the sale.

I owned a Cedar Ruck several years ago. It was a fantastic sounding instrument. He has a reputation for consistency of tone on all of his instruments. Someone will be very lucky to acquire this beauty. GLWS

Beautiful guitar and very good price! Good luck with the sale. I agree with Zupfgeiger that the Indian Rosewood looks like Brazilian! And with Rodgers!!

Just posting to attest to the "as New" condition of this guitar. I was within 85 miles of Santa Clara this last weekend and was curious enough to see and play a Ruck that I made the drive, despite the fact that I'm having shoulder surgery next week and not really in a position to make such an acquisition until about the end of the year.
It's difficult to see any evidence that the guitar didn't just come off of Ruck's bench 3 months ago, let lone 10 years ago. Apparently it was owned by a dentist/collector for the first 5 years and not played.
If you've been hoping for a Ruck in outstanding condition, this could be it. The voice, as one would expect is very traditional.
