The Rick Turner Renaissance RS-6 Design

The Rick Turner Renaissance RS-6 Design

We have had a number Rick Turner's Renaissance RS-6 electro-acoustic guitars come and go through our London showroom - they never take long to find a home and it’s easy to see why!

Designed to bridge the gap between electric and acoustic guitars, the RS-6 models are built by Rick Turner and his team in Santa Cruz, California. Much like a thinline acoustic guitar but with an added cedar centre block to cut out any feedback, these guitars are quite unlike anything you have played before.

These guitars have been used by the likes of Lindsey Buckingham both on his solo work and with Fleetwood Mac, they are extremely popular among studio and touring guitarists due to their versatility and dynamic sound.

All Renaissance series guitars come fitted with Rick Turner's own Turner Timberline coaxial piezo pickup system which is mounted under the bridge. These pickups senses 360 degrees around their centre meaning they project the vibration of the strings as well as the warmth of the wood. This pickup then feeds to an 18v D-TAR pre-amp giving the guitar a distinctive tone perfect for both the studio and live performance.

There is also a Blended Deuce System available as an optional extra, this adds a Turner Shop-modified Seymour Duncan StagMag humbucker pickup that can be blended with the piezo.

The Renaissance RS-6 comes in three different models - Standard, Deluxe and Special. These different models feature the same Mahogany neck, Rosewood fretboard and electronics. The differences come in the body woods and the choice of pickup system.
