The Ronin Mirari Foilbucker is hand-crafted from centuries-old Redwood in California. The guitar gets its name from the Ronin custom-made Foilbucker pickups which are modern foil humbucker pickups specifically designed to compliment the tonewoods. Now available in new Aged Gold and Charcoal Frost Silverburst finishes…

The Ronin Mirari Foilbucker features a bolt-on one-piece neck which is hand-shaped from a very high grade of Honduran Mahogany, neck profile can be custom made Narrow C, Wide C or Wide V again hand-shaped, the fretboard is made from 5A high quality Rosewood and can be hand-shaped with 9”, 10” or “7.25-9.5” radius. The bridge is a Mannmade® 2 Pin Full Size Steel Block Tremolo and the tuners are Hipshot. The finish is a very thin matte of un-catalyzed nitrocellulous lacquer which is then hand aged/distressed.

It is the electronics which give the Ronin Mirari Foilbucker its unique revisionist-retro character. The two Foilbucker pickups are Ronin’s own creation, entirely custom-machined and designed from the ground up to replicate the hallowed tone of vintage Rowe/DeArmond “gold foil” units, but in a humbucking format. The controls include cool retro CTS Pots and a three-way switch and push-button coil taps for each pickup to give you even more tonal flexibility.

All Ronin guitars are hand-made by Izzy Lugo and brothers John and Jack Reed in Humboldt County, California. Many of the shop’s instruments are made from centuries-old redwood salvaged from trees fallen on the Reed family’s own land.
