IBC-Music Supplies Award Winning Acoustic Guitar

Northern Ireland company IBC-Music, who specialise in helping international guitars brands find manufacturing partners across the world, has been a key player in helping one of its Canadian customers win the prestigious MMR Award for Acoustic Guitar of the year.

Riversong Guitars from Canada, just captured the prestige dealer’s choice award in the USA for their River Pacific P2P Acoustic Guitar, beating leading International guitar brands such as Martin, Taylor and Yamaha.

Speaking from Tampa Florida where IBC-Music’s MD, Iain Wilson is currently on a whirlwind tour, visiting with a number of US guitar brands, Iain stated:

‘IBC-Music has worked hard to build an international reputation. Brands seek us out and thankfully our reputation goes before us.

This award for Riversong Guitars, brings us a lot of pride. The patented shapes and neck design were not easy to manufacture, but yet we were able to find a key partner and bring the guitar to market. Dealers and consumers have obviously reacted positively to the sound and quality as they voted Riversong guitar of the year, ahead of other very stiff competition and brands.

It’s amazing that a small team in Northern Ireland can offer a world renowned service and build up such an international client base. Our expertise is being used by more and more brands. We expect additional business to result from this trip in the USA as well, bringing the perfect Christmas present.’
