Here’s a beautiful Rick Turner Guitars Renaissance RS6 steel string electric acoustic. I ordered this one with a redwood top and a 1 3/4 nut. The guitar has some nicely figured mahogany back and sides, a western red cedar top, mahogany neck and an ipe (Brazilian walnut) fingerboard.

If you play acoustic guitar live, you’re familiar with the challenges of getting a natural acoustic tone amplified to stage volumes without being plagued by feedback. All the mics, preamps and EQs in the world are rarely up to dealing with a loud monitor pointing at your soundhole. The thinline RS6 is built like an acoustic but has a mahogany center block to resist feedback. A Turner Timberline bridge pickup feeds a full-spectrum signal to an 18-volt D-TAR preamp with graduated volume and tone controls. The preamp runs off two AA batteries, easily accessible via the back panel. I have tested this at loud monitor volumes and it works great straight into the board. Lindsey Buckingham (Fleetwood Mac) loves his Turner guitars and plays a Renaissance live. These guitars also sound great through a conventional guitar amp.

With locking tuners, Access padded case and Timberline electronics.
