Italian luthier Fabio Ragghianti has announced a new U.S. company, Ragghianti Guitars, based in Boulder, Colorado to distribute his new line of hand-crafted instruments.
They say the guitars employ a multi-scale fret system for improved tonal balance, a raised fingerboard for easy access to the higher registers plus a personal side sound port. Each of the new instruments is built under the supervision of Mr. Ragghianti by a luthier team in China.
The new model is handcrafted by this team using the same techniques as his custom guitars but now made available to a much wider market.
With a retail price starting under $2500, each of the new Ragghianti models is hand crafteds, according to Ragghianti.
The soundboard can be chosen in Canadian Western Red Cedar (Thuja Plicata) or in Canadian Sitka Spruce (Picea Sitchensis). The back and sides are in solid Indian Rosewood (Dalbergia Latifolia).
