What troubles me is that I am such a snooty classical guitar player that the endpin turns me off. I hope this is just me.
You asked for feedback...sorry. :)

So remove the endpin and fill the hole. Problem solved. Great price for a used Ruck!

Question I have is what does it sound like, and how does it play? I definitely would not want a 640 mm, though I guess if it sounded great I could live with it. It looks like a great guitar by the way!

Going to have to amend my previous statement about 640 mm scale guitars. Some of you may find this funny. I have an old Guild Mark 2 from the 60's that I never play because I have guitars with much better pedigrees. Picked up the Guild last evening and put new strings on it, it is a 640 mm. This morning as I am playing it, it is remarkable how nice the sound is, and how easy it is to play! I may have to keep it, rather than give it away, just too nice.

The Ruck listed for sale here is 657mm. I have played 655mm and they play great. I don't think I have ever seen a Ruck listed this low. And this one has Brazilian back & sides!

I tried to describe the sound in the original post. I think I can add
that it is a little more on the pianistic side of the scale.

Plays well, action is 3.75 on bass side and 3.0 mm on treble side.
Large frets (.055") which is a little easier to barre for me.

Thanks to all for your comments.

How can a Ruck still be on the market after 7 months? Beyond belief... such a beauty and most likely amazing instrument (and no, I have no interest in this sale!)
