Inspiration is a funny thing as it can come from anywhere….a poem, a conversation with an old friend, or a killer tune we’ve never heard before. The inspiration for the Ringmaster was the contemporary movement of talented players of all ages making use of extended range and multi-scale instruments.
There was an entire community of players in diverse genres stretching the limits of what was previously possible with the electric guitar’s traditional format. Gene realized that many of the extended range and multi-scale instruments available to these players had serious limitations or shortcomings.
Here was an opportunity for him to take all he had learned from his 40 years of guitar building experience and apply it to a truly unique and contemporary tool specifically designed for extended range and technical players.
Designed for maximum note attack and definition, the Ringmaster series is available as a bolt on or set neck, a flat or carved body, and in any variety of body woods and electronics configurations.
