Designed in conjunction with acclaimed Nashville musician, Richie Owens, the R60RCE and the R60BCE have unique features that set them apart from the majority of resonator guitars. The R60BCE features a matte black finish and the R60RCE features a matte amber flame maple finish. All other features are the same for both models.
The R60BCE is a round neck, acoustic-electric resonator guitar with a venetian cutaway for easy upper fret access. The body is comprised of a maple top, back and sides 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 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 R60BCE's electronics is a Lace Sensor pickup with one volume and one tone control. This pickup has great overall balance and clarity, capturing the true essence, versatility and soul of this unique instrument.
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".
