KAMLOOPS — Kamloops' very own Riversong Guitars has been nominated for yet another prestigious award.    
After 4 years, the world famous, handmade guitars are now patented, and the company has been shortlisted for an International award in the Music Manufacturing Industry. For the second year in a row, the Music Merchandise Review Magazine, or MMR Magazine, has nominated Riversong for the Best Acoustic Guitar of the year, and Product of the Year.

"We've won a total of 11 awards, including these 2 nominations, I say won because even being nominated and shortlisted to me is a pretty amazing thing, as far as prestige goes, this is a worldwide global award, voted on by our customers, it's amazing," Says Mike Miltimore of Riversong Guitars.

The nomination is thanks to one particular guitar, that is getting all the attention. The new Riversong Tradition 2 Performer Grand Auditorium, is a top quality Riversong exclusive, that the company just released. 

"It's got some comfort cuts on it, it's kind of like the Tesla of the guitar of the guitar industry, it plays really well, it sounds great, it's 100% domestic woods, and it's our latest guitar, we've incorporated a lot of our custom shop features into this guitar, so it's really the latest and greatest guitar," says Miltimore.
