- First of all, the craftsmanship is unsurpassed!
- Number two, they are very musical sounding guitars. What I mean by that is, the notes you are playing speak loud and true. If you want AC/DC, it's there if you want the Eagles' tone it's there, or if you want Tom Petty tones, they are there for the taking also.
- The push-pull volume knob is a great feature that splits the pickups to make the ultra-clean sounds available.
- The different woods that their master builder chooses are beautiful and unique!! Some of the detailed artwork on the hardware is unreal, and something I've never seen before.
The craftsmanship and creative design are second to none and the out of box playability is extraordinary beyond words.
You'll probably spend more time just gazing at these guitars let alone playing them.
The bottom line though is that they feel 'just right' in whatever style you play, and the sound comes through the amps with the warmth and tone compatible to any amplifier. The choice of woods and color tones are 'in tune' and unmatched. Just simply incredible work, feel, tone, and stellar quality in every guitar they build!
You don't even need to plug this guitar in to judge the sustain. Just play the open G chord and hold it to your body; the vibration goes on for days.
The neck has mass like an old 50's Les Paul, but the 'playability factor' with the flat fretboard makes it silky and fast.
The 'Hum-single-single' combination is a perfect addition to these guitars... very transparent, but very warm and fat.
I have just done the Pepsi Challenge with some of my guitars. I played through a Fender Custom Deluxe 64 Reverb with no effects. I played a Fender CS 60 Stratocaster, a Gibson ES-359, my Les Paul and my Gibson 335, and one of my three RH Custom Guitars.
Each of these guitars has its own special sound, but I was able to get all of those sounds put together from my RH Custom guitar.
So, my RH Custom Guitar is, in my opinion, "the best all-around guitar in my ENTIRE collection!"
I commissioned Rick to produce a guitar very similar to Jami Dupuis' and this guitar is not only a beauty but it is a rocking beast.
I have 20 electrics in my collection... PRS, Jackson Custom Shop, custom Les Pauls, custom Strats, a bunch of Music Man EVH's, Peavy EVH's and Fender EVH's (not the consumer grade versions)...
The RH Custom Guitars are the first to be played and are now my go to axes.
What more can you ask? Visually beautiful and tonally expansive. Thank you Rick.
I took it to Guitar Center to get the strings changed (I was having eye issues), and the tech there took tons of pictures of it. Said he has never seen woodwork that well done! Very happy with my guitar. I look forward to buying another.
The finish and set-up quality are second to none! The guitar arrives ready-to-rip with no additional tune-up required.
The impossibly low action is smooth and clean across the entire scale with zero fret buzz. The pick-up configuration has a killer range that can cross from mild-to-wild without compromise.
Every aspect of his work shows an attention to detail that cannot exist without passion and a dedication to to quality!
Rick's ability to to craft these magnificent axes is second to none.
This guitar ruined other guitars for me because none play as effortless as my "Paul E" and the pick-ups have an unbelievably versatile range for any genre I play.
If you're looking for a custom high-end player's guitar I'd recommend talking to Rick, you won't regret it.
I love my RH Custom Guitar because it does everything I wanted it to do; it is just perfect!
