Ruf Guitars introduces Schrödinger, a high-tech tone machine with incredibly comfortable access to the high frets. You can configure your own Schrödinger dream guitar.
Have you ever heard about the Schrödinger cat? It is a thought experiment, in which (long story short) an entirely theoretical cat is both dead and alive at the same time. As a quantum object, it is simultaneously in each of the possible states (the so-called superposition) and only opening the box provides information about the cat’s state.
How is it connected to Ruffaine? It’s an innovative, fully adjustable and unlimitedly recyclable composite material scientifically designed to achieve the perfect tone – your tone. But before that, it can be everything you want it to be. It represents different types of wood at the same time and before YOU decide what you want it to be, it’s everything you can dream of.
RUFFAINE FLAVOURS: Choose one of the flavors and trust our years of experience or create your own sound from scratch.
RELIABILITY: Are you a touring musician? Choose guitars that are remarkably insensitive to changes of temperature and moisture in the air.
RESEARCH AND SCIENCE: Our guitars do not come from a design perspective but from research and science. This is why our instruments are so unique.
SPECS: Inspired by science. Created with R&D
BODY AND NECK: Ruffiane Plain
FRETBOARD: Richlite Black Diamond
PICKUPS: Fishman Fluence Modern
FRETBOARD: Jester Stainless Steel
Ruffaine is innovative, fully adjustable and unlimitedly recyclable composite material scientifically designed to achieve the perfect tone – your tone.
We’ve conducted research that proved we can achieve a sound similar to different types of wood or – create a unique one. Ruffaine is fully adjustable which means you can choose what kind of sound you’d like to get – and we can make it!
Compared with wood that is used for instrument production we observed perfect repeatability, without any differences between particular pieces of wood used for the neck, fretboard or the body.
Temperature and humidity fluctuations? Not this time! Ruffaine is remarkably intensive to changes of temperature and moisture in the air. The wood “works” which requires human reaction and when it comes to Ruffaine the reaction is non-existent, especially to moisture – it simply doesn’t matter. We also use modern lacquers that also provide sun resistance.
For our guitars, we use aircraft-certificated epoxide, which is a real top quality material.
Unprecedented ergonomics combined with the adjustable sound creates the most reliable and comfortable guitars for modern musicians. Add to that the improvements that were simply not possible 40 years ago, such as incredibly easy access to the last frets or the neck’s surface coated with nano-silver molecules that reduce sweating and bacterial growth – this is where science meets luthiery.
