    Hello there!

    I contacted Jens Ritter in 2009 through e-mails and phone. We had a very good comunication but we did not meet face to face until last week. I am very excited because he will build a Roya 5 string bass for me.☺
    I am living in eastern Europe and lately I was traveling a lot in Germany and western Europe so was the perfect time for me to take a visit to Jens Ritter in Deidesheim, Germany, to talk about my future bass he will build and even to pick up the woods for my bass.
    Jens, is a very nice man to deal with, his suggestions were very helpful and preoccupied about every detail of the bass I am expecting to get from his hands.
    Everybody from this forum knows he is one of the best luthiers in the world and the german perfection is emphasised in his basses. I was playing a few basses and I can say they were magical.

    I will keep you informed here when I will have more details about my bass.
