RITZ
Instruments previously built in Calimesa, CA between 1989 and 1990. Also see WRC Guitars.
After luthier/designer Wayne Charvel left Charvel in the late 1980s, he went on to build guitars under a different name a shortwhile later. Charvel, along with luthier Eric Galleta and part owner Brad Becnel produced these guitars, and Ritz guitars are probably best-known for their cracked shell mosaic finish. The first guitars were labeled Ritz, but after only a few guitars were built, the brand was changed to WRC Guitars. For Ritz/WRC Guitar listings, refer to WRC Guitars. Currently, Charvel and his oldest son Michael own the music store Charvel Music and they build guitars under the Wayne Guitars trademark.
