Gerber RL 15 (Lutz/Cocobolo)
Ryan Gerber made this beautiful 15″ guitar back in 2015 for the Memphis Guitar Show. Perfect
Lutz Spruce for the soundboard and quarter-sawn Cocobolo for the back and sides, not to
mention the addition of Wenge for the fingerboard, bindings, and bridge! Add a slight fan-fret
and 13 frets to body and you have a highly resonant fingerstyle guitar with loads of response in
all registers. Extremely unique-sounding guitar.
Not mentioned in the video specs is a slight Manzer wedge, adding comfort to an already
playable OM size! The 13-fret to body makes this guitar just a little warmer in the midrange but
not quite as warm as a 12-fretter. Ryan makes a stellar guitar and this early work of his is clear
proof of his well-deserved reputation.
