And just for ease of use, here is all the nomal information on this body shape and my guitars in general: 

The Ritualist is the first guitar for RGI. The design goal was an aluminum guitar that looks classic out the gate, built to survive, and allow you to swap parts when that time arrives.

Engineered using an aluminum neck-through-body construction and designed around the Mastery tremolo and bridge. The pickups and hardware are joined to the neck spine that runs through the entire guitar by removable couplers, so that swapping to new hardware won’t require an entirely new guitar or drilling the neck directly. The shape was then inspired by GCI, EGC, TB, Seger, and others.

The Ritualist is built to order with your specifications, so expect at least a nine month wait before receiving your guitar.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

  • WHAT DOES IT SOUND LIKE?

New website, once I figure out embedded audio, I will include it here

 

  • SOLID WOOD? WHAT KIND?

My local wood supplier is called Goosebay Lumber, if you would like to look at their selection of possible woods, here: https://goosebaylumber.net/

In general, this option is priced from picking up a single piece (no jointing) of African Mahogany. If you wanted Walnut, for instance, that would have to be jointed, and would cost an additional $100 for the higher cost in wood; or possible to special order a solid slab but would also cost more. Just specify in the additional details part of your order, and I will organize with you for the material. In general, they have access to anything.

  • THE PICKUP SELECTION DOESN'T HAVE WHAT I WANT, WHAT GIVES?

This is just a small selection of pickups I have worked with, or like.  If there is a pickup that you would like, just ask and if I can find it for purchase, it can go in the guitar.  ezpz.

 

  • I WANT IT BOLT ON, GIVE ME BOLT ON

That isn’t a question. But the body is designed that the inside of the heel is the standard 25.5” strat heel position. So, if you wanted this to be a bolt on with these options, it is certainly possible. Just talk about it in the form, and I will do the estimate based on the material you choose.

 

  • WHAT IS THE RITUALIST?

The Ritualist, my first complete design, is a Guitar I designed with Paul DeGrandpre. He worked with me to come up with the shape and design requirements, and offered input at every stage of the build.
