The Washburn R60RCE Acoustic Electric Resonator Guitar packs some unique features that set it apart from other resonators! Washburn worked with acclaimed Nashville musician Richie Owens to design this remarkable instrument. The R60RCE features beautiful flame maple top, back and sides as well as a round maple neck which is very comfortable.
The R60RCE is a round neck, acoustic/electric resonator guitar with a venetian cutaway for easy upper fret access. The body is comprised of flame maple for powerful lows and rich mids. The top features a unique F hole and pickguard and supports a custom proprietary coverplate 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.
The maple neck of the Washburn R60RCE is capped with a 20 fret rosewood fingerboard. String spacing, neck and nut width are wider than standard, 48mm at the nut, to facilitate fingerstyle playing and fast and precise slide work. The Wilkinson Deluxe tuners feature green buttons and have a 15:1 ratio for quick, accurate tuning.
At the heart of the R60RCE’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.
