This guitar will be produced in our new 10,000sq ft manufacturing facility in Sicamous BC Canada.
All new for 2023 NAMM the P555-CE A is a Grand Auditorium shape guitar with a solid Sitka Spruce top. This guitar has a cutaway design with a Fishman Flex 2-button pickup. The pickup system on this guitar will easily be at home on any stage and will faithfully reproduce the full guitar sound. It is braced for an excellent balance between powerful bottom end and a balanced warm top end. The infinity Indian Rosewood arm rest bevel looks as amazing as it feels. The "River" side port keeps the guitar sounding natural with crisp highs and warm lows. Back and sides are Mahogany with Mahogany binding.
This guitar is a performer in a classic styling.
Neck-thru Construction - The Patented Riversong Neck System
Our patented Neck-thru technology offers many benefits including strength, intonation, less bracing, easier playing due to the ability to make precise adjustments, variable top loading, an even balanced sustain tone, and volume up and down the neck (yes even on the body), eliminating the need of an expensive neck reset, slinky easy string tension, reduced heel, and the integrated strap pins are part of the structure of the guitar.
Riversong's unique patented Neck-thru design also has a truss rod that runs the full length of the neck. Most traditional guitars have a truss rod that ends at the 14th fret and continuing with an elongated screw head. Riversong necks have a full-length truss rod that adjusts the entire length closer to how an electric guitar is constructed.
The patented neck system has a small amount of flex (like a Strat) and this allows regular gauge strings to feel a lot less stiff further enforcing our electric-like feel.
Our Active Body System
Riversong’s innovation is the active body system. It works by moving the neck all the way through the body allowing two things happen:
The structure shifts from neck joint to the end block
The mass of the neck is now equal in and out of the guitar and it is free to vibrate like a tuning fork helping to ring up and down the neck and throughout the body. With the structure coming from the back of the guitar, the body and the neck has a little bit of flex (like a Strat vs a Les Paul) this flex gives the body the ability to freely vibrate and give the strings a really slinky feel (low tension)
