RB-0 #7

 
First recording of my newest RB-0 two days after putting strings on and before dialing in the set up. The saddle needs some intonation adjustments, but both myself and Joe, who graciously agreed to be filmed (even though he was just picking up his guitar that was in for some work) really like how this guitar sounds.

The slightly larger twin of parlor #8, this guitar shares the same uniquely grained top with a similarly superb sound. It is decidedly brighter, but still has a pleasant balance. It has an incredibly fast and clear attack as you can hear in the impromptu phone recording above. It shares the same hand rubbed vintage sunburst under nitro lacquer as #8 and also unfortunately similar finish imperfections. It is also being offered for a special low price because of this, but is a fantastic guitar to play, with only small aesthetic imperfections.
