Lucky number 13 in the count of guitars I have built and number 10 to be built under the Queen City label, this guitar is something special. From the subtly figured claro walnut framed by matching binding cut from the same board to neck featuring a juxtaposition of contrasting elements; Smooth Curves and angular lines abound. Maple accents on the body provide further visual contrast and draw attention to the fall leaves floating down the back.
This small guitar feels like a parlor, but plays with a bass and presence foreign to that association. It has a tone clear and crisp that feels solid and responsive. The RB-0 model provides a pleasing balance of strong treble and full bass and this guitar is a fine example of that.
