Manufacturer's Description

Product ships directly from the manufacturer, please allow 24-48 hours extra processing time.

Designed in conjunction with acclaimed Nashville musician, Richie Owens, the R60BCE has unique features that set it apart from the majority of resonator guitars. String spacing, neck and nut width are wider than standard, 1-7/8″ at the nut, to facilitate finger-style playing and fast and precise slide work. The top features a unique F hole and pickguard and supports a custom proprietary cover-plate of Richie’s design. It houses the spun aluminum cone and aluminum spider bridge for great sustain and a maple and ebony tipped top saddle for added crispness. At the heart of the R60BCE’s electronics is a Lace Sensor pickup with one volume and 1 tone control. This pickup has great overall balance and clarity, capturing the true essence, versatility and soul of this unique instrument. This round neck, acoustic-electric resonator cutaway is comprised of a maple top, back, sides and neck for powerful lows and rich mids. The Wilkinson Deluxe tuners feature green buttons and have a 15:1 ratio for quick, accurate tuning. The R60BCE features a matte black finish.

Richie Owens was brought up in a bluegrass family and began playing Dobro when he was just a boy. By the time he was in his teens, he was building and fixing his own instruments. Today, Richie designs, builds or repairs instruments for the likes of Nils Lofgren, Ron Wood and The Dixie Chicks. He recently was on tour with Dolly Parton as a featured performer, playing mandolin on her “Vintage Tour.”
