My D-10 Rittenberry Prestige (dubbed "Big Red") is beyond a shadow of a doubt the best sounding, best recording pedal steel guitar I have ever owned. It has become a sonic game changer for me. Derek Puckett's commitment to quality and detail is to be commended. I see nothing but a bright future for the Rittenberry legacy....

This gorgeous 9x9 Rittenberry, I call "The Concord" is truly one of the best sounding guitars I've ever played.
