    Re: Ruhland A5

    I ordered mine in 2019 at that price right after playing one at the Tygh Valley Festival. Guessing the prices have gone up considerably as they should. Matt really has something special going on.

    Tone…none better? Reischman and Ronnie McCoury come to mind.

    Who all was in the Tony Rice Tribute Band at Rockygrass besides DG?
