I will be returning to the Montreal Guitar Show this year on June 29th – July 1st to exhibit my guitars. My new flatpicking model inspired by the 1930′s Gibson AJ will be making its debut at this show. Click on the banner to visit the website.
Once again I will be proudly exhibiting my guitars at the Woodstock Invitational Guitar Show in Woodstock, NY on October 26-28. This is a very unique and intimate show that shouldn’t be missed. Click on the banner to visit the website.

When necessary, it has always been my policy to increase my prices at the beginning of the new year. It has also been my policy to announce price increases several months in advance to give those considering purchasing an RS Muth guitar an opportunity to place an order prior to the price increase. Having failed to do that I am now announcing that my prices will be increasing as of March 1, 2012. The standard base price on a traditional guitar will be $4700 and the base price on an Ascent guitar will be $5000. All orders accompanied by a deposit prior to March 1 will be honored at the current prices.
Just got back from Woodstock and had a wonderful time. It is always good to see old friends and to meet new ones. I was very busy at the show and my latest example of the Ascent Series guitar received a lot of attention. Paul Asbell did a great job playing and demonstrating my guitars and chose to use one for his fingerstyle blues workshop. My hats off to Baker Rorick for putting on this show and all the hard work he does. Next year!
I just added a new page to the website titled, “Sightings”. On this page I capture postings of photos, videos and articles pertaining to RS Muth Guitars. Check it out! Right now there are several postings related to the Montreal Guitar Show and the Cherry Seven Project, as well as links to some Youtube clips featuring my daughter, Haley.
I also added a couple of testimonials from satisfied customers on the “Acclaim” page.
Had a great time and a very successful show in Woodstock this past weekend. It was great to see old friends and to make new ones.
Kudos to Baker Rorick for another great show.
Thanks to everyone who stopped by my table. These shows are exhausting and exhilarating at the same time. Remember, don’t be shy about asking me any questions that you might have.
I’ve recently updated my website to reflect changes in my offerings. The “Americana” and “Performer” Series guitars are no longer called out separately.
All of the features comprising the “Performer” Series are available as options on all of my guitars with the exception of the externally adjustable neck set. I’m no longer offering this option, but I’m still offering an adjustable neck with internal adjustment.
I still highly encourage the use of local woods in the construction of my guitars. There are many high quality woods available including Adirondack spruce, black walnut, maple and butternut for necks. Any of my models can incorporate these environmentally friendly woods.
I am now offering a shallow cut Florentine cutaway as well as my standard Venetian cutaway. The price for both of these options is now $500.
Finally, I am now providing all of my guitars with Ameritage “Silver Series” cases equipped with an Oasis Plus Case Humidifier. The “Silver Series” has the exact same construction as the “Gold Series”, but excludes the build-in humidifier and hygrometer. I feel digital hygrometers can be misleading and I personally like the function of the Oasis Plus Humidifier much better than the built-in humidifier. I also like the color scheme of the “Silver Series” much better, dark gray and black.
I am pleased to announce that my guitars can now be found at Trinity Guitars in Jamestown, NY. Jim Holler is a great guy who just opened up a brand new shop and sells his guitars worldwide. If you happen to be near Jamestown, be sure to pay him a visit.
Unfortunately I will not be able to attend the Newport Guitar Show in Hollywood, FL this April. However I will be attending the Montreal Guitar Show for my fourth time this July. This is a great show that coincides with the Montreal Jazz Fest every year. I encourage everyone to try to make it if you can.
