Introducing the all New 2023 Riversong Stylist Acoustic Electric Guitar part of our award winning Pacific Series guitars.
This new Canadian wood combination features a solid Sitka Spruce top, walnut back and sides, which includes a red wood binding in a high gloss finish. The maple neck has a satin finish.
This guitar elevates your sound and looks amazing on a stage, in the studio or any place you want to play.
The innovation includes Riversong guitars' patented Neck-thru adjustable neck system, allowing for less bracing and the ability to adjust intonation and string height with an easy twist of an Allen key.
The Stylist also features a 2 octave fretboard, 16” radius, plus a sound port monitor and Strat style string spacing that makes you want to riff all night long.
We integrated our patented Double Reaction bridge, which conducts sound to the top and under bridge plate simultaneously increasing overall volume by 10%. The Double Reaction bridge has a balanced mass encouraging increased resonant vibration.
The electronic pick-up system is a Fishman Presys w/ mic blender. Optional Miltimore Handwired Pickup system is available as an additional upgrade.
The Miltimore MMPS Upgrade Option
The exclusive Miltimore MMPS pick up system was developed in our electronics lab for 6 years, with the best sound engineers, electronic engineers, we built the next level electronic system for acoustic guitars.
This design incorporates the latest IC technology, giving the preamp a very low noise floor, high dynamic range and amazing depth of control.
The Stylist comes with a 2-way pickup system using an under saddle Piezo system and a condenser microphone with a blending circuit and tuner.
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)
D'Addario XT strings combine high carbon steel cores with an advanced corrosion resistance treatment, giving you enhanced break resistance, pitch stability, and long-lasting performance –– all while preserving the tone and feel of your favorite uncoated strings. These are strings made to stay, with uncompromising performance that never fades away.
