The No.6 exquisitely captures the spirit of Rathbone Guitars with its time-honoured short-scale Parlour design matched with visually captivating and great sounding tonewoods.
The all-mahogany tonewoods of this R6ME Parlour model exude a classy vibe and deliver a warm and mellow tone that performs especially well as an accompaniment instrument. It responds well to strumming and fingerpicking, occupying the midrange with balance and personality.
No.6 models are the first series in the Rathbone Guitars range to feature slotted headstocks. This headstock design increases the angle at which strings cross over the nut, thus increasing the downward tension which gives strings – particularly open strings - greater tonal clarity and note articulation.
Furthermore, as smaller bodied Parlour shaped guitars like the No.6 have a naturally delicate voice, the slotted headstock design works in harmony with the 12th fret neck join to deliver all-important tonal warmth, punch and dynamics… so not only will your Rathbone No.6 radiate a traditional Troubadour aesthetic, it’ll sound fantastic too!
