Riversong Tradition Canadian N
The TRADITION Canadian (N)
The Tradition Canadian (CDN) guitar came
to life during the search for domestic woods for the instrument’s back
and sides. On one of Mike Miltimore’s hunts for unique woods, Sitka
Spruce was suggested as great material the back and sides and he decided
to try it out. Custom-milled for the Riversong Trad CDN guitar, the
wood turned out to be very dynamic with an impulsive bottom end. After
many experiments, Character grade Adirondack Spruce was chosen for the
top. The Character grade shows off Mother Nature’s art and each guitar
is top is unique and hand selected. The Black Walnut fretboard and mini
Maple Leaves finish off this understated beauty. Vintage Guitar Magazine
called the Tradition Canadian guitar the “Steel Flamenco” in the shop
we call it the Sprutar.

What’s Different about the Riversong Guitars – Tradition Series:
Adjustable Body Angle
Our action is raised or lowered by a
simple adjustment of the body angle. Changing the body angle eliminated
the need to adjust your action by destructively sanding your saddle and
Tension Free Design
Our patent pending “Neck Thru” design
reduces the tension across the guitar top allowing Riversong guitars to
use less structural bracing and have more resonant area.
Adjustable Top Loading
Whether you use light or heavy gauge strings, Riversong has a system for adjusting the stiffness of your guitar top.
The neck can move in and out of the pocket
where it sits allowing for micro-adjustments while under tension. NO
MORE COMPROMISE ON INTONATION!
One-Piece 24 Fret Neck
Our neck runs continuously under the fretboard to the 24th fret for even tone and volume, while eliminating 14th fret hump.
Straight Pull Headstock Design
There is no sideways tension through the nut, resulting in better tuning stability and tone.
Less Kerf = More Tone
We use 1/3 the kerfing, and our top is directly connected to the side and back for better energy transfer.
