Today, Announcing the birth of Jim Ruiz Four!
We are pleased to announce we have acquired Mike Crabtree as an official member of our musical team and will henceforth be known as Jim Ruiz Four.

Mike has decided it is time to move his brand of “boss” guitar to the jazzier waters of the Jim Ruiz Four.
