Saw this on Facebook, Risto is looking to sell, says price is low and negotiable. Guitar is beautiful. If you don't have FB you can always reach out via the email from his website

Every note wants to go somewhere-Kurt Rosenwinkel
Nice guitar. I've always been curious about his work so I messaged him about this one recently. More details: Solid walnut back and sides, Spruce top, No truss rod or any rod at all, trad D-shape walnut neck for strength and stability. One year old and stable construction. His price is very reasonable. Would have jumped on it if it was laminate with a truss rod.
Oh thanks! Walnut, no wonder I loved the look of it. It's probably my favorite wood. He does his own laminates but only as a custom order. His guitars are also very stable without the truss rod. And the neck profile he usually uses is one of the most comfortable. Shallower D, not to deep but not too shallow, just right.
Good to know! I've always admired his work, and it's incredibly affordable.
The thick-ish all-black binding is cool on that guitar.
Yeah I really liked that too, it stands out making a nice contrast.
