Video Review- Jens Ritter Princess Isabella Guitar

May 18, 2010
PG's Pat Smith walks us through his latest review in the June 2010 issue of Premier Guitar -- the Ritter Instruments Princess Isabella Baritone Jazz Guitar.

The Isabella is Jens Ritter's (renowned bass luthier) take on building a hollowbody-style guitar but with a solid body construction. It also uniquely thin as it only measures 1" thick. Also, it has a very different bridge design/construction, which Ritter describes as "the hand cast bridge foot is mounted into a small hollowed area carved into the body that exactly matches the contour of the bridge foot. The bridge foot is held in place by a friction setting and only makes contact with a 2mm thin elliptical contour ridge along the hollow area. Thus, most of the surface area on the interior side of the bridge foot and the bridge studs float in the hollow area."

The body is made from a very light swamp ash, the neck is switenia mahogany and the fingerboard is Bavarian maple. The tuners are Gotohs, the bridge is a Schaller and the pickup is a Haeussel Custom Fat-Jazz.
