Saw this on G Guitar's site in Connecticut. First time I've seen a blackburst burled chestnut top. Ritter seems to be making some very nice instruments. JT - didn't you say you played some at NAMM? Here's the specs on this bass: Buckeye Burl Top, this stunning Ritter Bass features a transparent Blackburst finish over a Buckeye Burl top, Mahogany body, Bolt-on Maple neck, Lined Ebony board, 34" scale, Ritters own Pickups with Ebony Covers, Ritter Preamp. Nice!
