I have encountered Aaron's instruments at festivals and from fellow players for a number of years. I have been impressed by every one that I have played and heard. After playing his two show models at the 2016 GFA convention alongside much higher priced guitars from well-known makers, I knew that my next guitar was going to be a Wood Ring. Aaron was a pleasure to work with and connected me with players who owned his previous 630 scale models, which was something that I was interested in for my build. I was able to play two of his 630 models before making my final decision. Each of those guitars had beautiful tone and projected beyond most instruments that I have played, regardless of scale. My guitar is a 630mm Spruce/cedar double top, with Indian rosewood back and sides, and an African black wood head plate. It remains one of the loudest guitars and my favorite of any that I have had the pleasure of playing. The tone is clear and precise, but with a beautiful warmth. Friends who have heard me play before and after getting my instrument from Aaron have remarked that they didn't realize how much better my musical ideas were than they were able to hear previously. On Aaron's guitar, everything comes out clearly and with broad expressive potential.
