Description

Here's a custom built Renaissance Nylon ES model, RS-6. This one features premium figured Walnut back and sides with a Cedar top, High Gloss Finish and the optional RMC pickup system with a MIDI output as well as the standard 1/4" output. So this is a very versatile stage Nylon string suitable for any style of music from Rock to Classical to New Age and Brazilian. Excellent tone and feel and zero feedback.

Rick Turner once told me straight up why he created his RS designs, he said people keep trying to get big acoustics to stop feeding back so I got rid of the big body and the soundhole. It really works, you can crank this guitar loud for on stage use and zero feedback. Lyndsey Buckingham and many others use this very model. It would be perfect for a stage setting or carefree wedding setup as well.
 
This is a cool little guitar, perfect for the jazz musician who needs to plug in and doesn't want to worry about feedback. I recorded the sample with no preamp using only the 1/4" jack, but you can use the polyphonic RMC preamp with the multi-pin jack to get a perfectly balanced string response with individual control.
