CONVERSE Chuck Taylor Guitar & Holy Grail Guitar Show

Dear customers, dear friends,

a whilde back I was talking with a friend about the times we went skateboarding together.
I remembered the shoes I was wearing at that time: Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars.
This gave me the inspiration for an instrument I just finished a few hours ago.
You can see this guitar this weekend at the Holy Grail Guitar Show in Berlin, Germany.

RITTER Bass at the Metropolitan Museum of Art / New York City


I proudly announce, that the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City acquired a bass of mine to start their collection of electric bass guitars!

After visiting the recent exhibition of old Jazz Guitars in 2011, I'm extremely happy to be a part of this major museum which takes great care of the documentation of the musical instrument history!
