  • Rick Turner California Series Model 1 and Renaissance RS6 #3 of 10 (Sunburst Finish)


    The 2021 Rick Turner California Series Guitars have arrived!  This Limited Edition Twin set of guitars (A Model 1 and a Renaissance RS6) are an exclusive build by Master Luthier, Rick Turner.  The all Mahogany bodies are accented with Northern California Curly Redwood and Santa Cruz Black Acacia.  With a Maple neck and a Ipe Fingerboard (Brazilian Hardwood), this killer set of guitars sports a 7th fret California "Golden Bear" inlay made of gold Mother of Pearl.  

    The Model 1 is loaded with the full electronics package including the Parametric EQ and the Piezo Pick up with blending electronics.  You've also got a coil tap own board with this incredibly versatile instrument. 



    The Renaissance has a 5 layer satin neck finish making it smooth as silk for fast playing. Light as a feather, coming in at just about 5 pounds, this hollow body stage acoustic gives you pristine, true acoustic tone without the unwanted feedback commonly associated with amplified acoustic guitars.  Rick achieves this by running a Cedar block down the center of the body.  The guitar is a revelation!!





    Although Rick was raised on the East Coast, he is California through and through!  When he first made his trek to the Golden State he was just a young lad searching for inspiration as an up-and-coming musician.  He found that inspiration and excitement at a local club called "The Golden Bear".  It was there that he befriended many musicians and deeply immersed himself in the California music scene.  It has since  always held a special place in his heart.  "I miss that old place" Rick fondly says of the Golden Bear Pub.  "And I don't think I'll ever leave California... its felt like home from the moment I arrived".
