Rock the Stage with This Roundneck Resonator!

Pick up a Washburn R15RCE roundneck resonator guitar and get all of the bluesy rasp, growl, and honk you could ask for, without having to change your playing style. This acoustic-electric roundneck resonator plays just like your favorite 6-string, only it comes loaded with a real aluminum spider resonator cone. A top, back, and sides made from mahogany start you off strong with a warm and woody base. And when you add the R15RCE's aluminum spider resonator cone, you get the kind of natural breakup that practically defines the blues. And check this out: the R15RCE even comes loaded with a single-coil pickup, so you'll get the same great tone onstage. Ask your Sweetwater Sales Engineer about a Washburn R15RCE today!

Washburn R15RCE Roundneck Resonator Guitar at a Glance:
  • Spider cone rasp meets the warmth of mahogany
  • Resonator style with standard guitar playing action
  • Single-coil neck pickup delivers soulful blues tone
Spider cone rasp meets the warmth of mahogany

To give their R15RCE roundneck resonator a warm and smooth tonal foundation, they went with a time-tested tonewood selection favored by singer/songwriters, which is a top, back, and sides made from mahogany. This bass rich recipe complements the naturally brighter and throaty sound of the R15RCE's spider-style aluminum resonator cone, while leaving plenty of breathing room for your vocals and other instrumentation.

Resonator style with standard guitar playing action

No need to learn how to play a squareneck in your lap when you pick up a Washburn R15RCE. That's because it is a roundneck resonator guitar. Sure it gives you the ringing rasp you'd expect from a classic blues slide guitar, but the R15RCE plays just like a regular acoustic 6-string. Grab a slide if you like or fret it like normal. Either way, you'll get all the bluesy vibe you want, without having to change your style.

Single-coil neck pickup delivers soulful blues tone

Here's something you don't see every day: a roundneck resonator with an electric-style single-coil pickup at the neck. The addition of this pickup makes the Washburn R15RCE an instant crossover resonator, providing you with the raspy sound of blues and the hard-hitting bite of rock. With bell-like clarity and a bright but not brittle chime, this pickup makes the R15RCE a wonderful instrument onstage.
