Risa Acoustic Bean
Risa is a German Brand, (though I hear they are actually made somewhere in Eastern Europe), and most famous for their solid Body Electric range. This one is an Electro-Acoustic with a Spruce top and Walnut back and sides. It is fitted with a Shadow passive under saddle pickup with the jack socket being housed in the strap button. It has black Risa Fluorocarbon strings and I hope they last because I cannot see how they are attached to the bridge so I have no idea how to replace them?
I think it looks very distinctive and nice with the walnut sides and the headstock design. I also think it is really nice to play and sounds really good both acoustically and amplified
I have only seen it for sale in one shop and now that I have bought it, it is out of stock there. It is no longer featured on Risa's website so I might have brought the last one. It has the serial number 4099 on the inside label so I wonder how many were made?
