The Ariz-H,

inspired by the guitars of the famous masters.

But with a contemporary design. The last model of Riemersma Guitars is the Ariz-H and the Ariz-R. Derived from the famous master Luthiers of the world, but with a completely personal vision as regards the braces on the top. This guitar has a nice warm bass with a long sustain and sparkling high over the whole range.

Recensie Gitaarplus…

“As a tree seems to have led a good life! Yet it is the inlays of the three rings of the rosette, that attracts your attention. You do this not just for a moment. I can describe it as a work of art, but if you go to the photography looks, you discover it for yourself!
When I turn the instrument, I have to be careful, and need sun glasses. “

Nicky Moeken, Gitaarplus
