RIVERSONG PATENTS GRANTED!
We received our patent for our adjustable neck, structure and build construction. This has been a long process and as our sales grow throughout the world, it is comforting to know that we have protection!
This system allows for an adjustable body angle, adjustable intonation and the one piece 24 fret neck runs continuously under the fretboard to the 24th fret for even tone and volume, while eliminating 14th fret hump. The tension free design reduces the tension across the guitar top allowing Riversong guitars to use less structural bracing and have more resonant area. With the straight pull headstock design there is no sideways tension through the nut, resulting in better tuning stability and tone.

INTEGRATED DIGITAL CONTROLLER
Riversong guitars announces the very first acoustic guitar with an integrated digital controller output. More at the Trad 2P GA TP page.
We have partnered up with Fishman Electronics to create an amazing guitar that can bridge the gap between digital music and acoustic guitar.
THE “SOULSTICE” SERIES
The Solstice uses our innovation technique of a composite materials / wood mix to produce a lower resonant frequency and an amazing playing neck. This new series has a limited edition run of all black (Eclipse) and a very cool linear fade called “Midnight Fade”. See more at the Soulstice page.
Here’s a shout out and eternal Riversong glory to Julian Dowless, one of the creative minds in our Beta Test group for coming up with the name “Soulstice”! Thank you Julian!
They just came out at the Winter NAMM show in California and are already getting rave reviews!

A Guitar Fit for Royalty
When the province of British Columbia, Canada was looking for a special gift to commemorate the coming of Their Royal Highnesses Princess Charlotte, Prince George, Prince William and Duchess Kate, they turned to Riversong Guitars to provide one of their patented Riversong Tradition Canadian guitars. Riversong proudly uses domestic woods located here in British Columbia in their products – from woodlands high alpine forest ranges, to magical old growth Giant Spruce and Cedar, and broad leaf figured Maple trees.
“It’s such an honour to build these instruments for Their Royal Highnesses. Music is the perfect alternative to screen time, where the whole family can enjoy being creative together. From my family to theirs, we hope the Royal Family enjoy these instruments”.
– Mike Miltimore, CEO Riversong Guitars
There are very few top international awards in the music manufacturing industry. The proud Canadians who run Riversong Guitars are over the top to have been not only the first to be received a Musikmesse International Press Award (MIPA) for having the best Acoustic Bass worldwide, but to then be nominated and shortlisted for the second year in a row for the MMR (Music Merchandise Review) Award for Best Acoustic Guitar is even more fantastic!
The guitar that’s getting all the attention is the new Riversong Tradition 2 Performer Grand Auditorium, with industry-setting comfort cuts and Riversong’s exclusive patented NeckNology system that gives precise control to action and intonation while relieving stress, making the body more resonant.
