The Washburn R15RCE acoustic-electric resonator guitar is ideal for Blues and Bluegrass styles and features a spider-bridge and a single cone resonator design. It's patterned after vintage instruments of the 1920s and 1930s and takes you back in time with its traditional design and tone.
Resonator guitars (also known as resophonic guitars), produce sound using vibrating metal cones (resonators) instead of the wooden soundboard (top). The metal cone produces a completely distinct tone and timbre.
There are two styles of resonator guitars, the round-necked style played in the conventional guitar style, and the square-necked version played in lap steel guitar style. The Washburn R15RCE is the former.
Electronics on the R15RCE dobro-style guitar include one single-coil pickup with volume and tone controls. It produces the familiar bell-like tone and clarity that resonator guitars are famous for.
If you've been craving the distinctive tone of a resophonic guitar, the Washburn R15RCE cutaway resonator guitar delivers it with precision. Add it to the cart and get yours on its way.
