The RS6 is the standard Renaissance stage model. The "S" stands for "steel-string", and the "6" designates, of course, the number of strings. This guitar is a joy to play, and its plugged-in tone has the potential to sound better than even some full-bodied guitars. It has terrific response, sustain and clarity, and it performs equally well fingerpicked or strummed (although it doesn't take to heavy strumming all that well, just because of its low action). It lights up in dropped tunings, which is more than I can say for some regular acoustic guitars.
This is my main stage guitar, and although I use it in live worship with a full rock band, I never have even a hint of feedback. I also occasionally use it in smaller venues where fingerstyle guitar can actually be heard, and again, it sounds fantastic. I've played it at weddings and solo shows, as well as singing along with it in multiple venues, and it is always performs great.
I love this guitar. The way it plays, the way it sounds, the way it looks.................. It's a beautiful thing man. Beautiful!
My wife likes it so well she said, "You should frame it and hang it on the wall in the man cave like a piece of art" (She doesn't play, but I still love her to pieces).
This was one fine guitar buying experience. Having never purchased a guitar on the internet before, I was a little Leary, but when it arrived so quickly (Michigan) and played like a dream (set up was great), I realized my concerns were misplaced. I'll do it again with the next one.
Thanks Rick Turner for the great guitar and Thanks John Fowler for the good advice when I called.
