Washburn R70BCEK Richie Owens Signature Scheerhorn Cone Resonator

Condition: Refurbished
Price: $349.00

A Fantastic Resonator for Discerning Performers

You'll have all the rich, growling resonator tone you can handle with the Washburn R70BCEK guitar. Designed with Nashville musician Richie Owens, the R70BCEK is a resonator that's ready for the rigors of the road. The distinctive tone comes from the hand-spun Scheerhorn resonator cone, and many of us at Sweetwater think it nails that unmistakable sound of a vintage resonator. A single F-hole, custom coverplate, and pickguard give the R70BCEK a different look than most resonators on the market. And with the built-in Lace Sensor pickup, you're well equipped for crisp, clear plugged-in performance.

Washburn R70BCEK Acoustic-electric Roundneck Resonator Guitar at a Glance:
  • Scheerhorn resonator cone for that iconic resonator sound
  • This resonator is ready to rock with a built-in pickup
  • Since 1883, Washburn has been producing quality fretted instruments
Scheerhorn resonator cone for that iconic resonator sound

Because the resonator cone inside the guitar is a huge part of a resonator's sound, it's natural that tone will vary based on the cone design. Tim Scheerhorn designed his hand-spun cones because he wasn't satisfied with the stamped metal cones he had used thus far. Many players find the Scheerhorn cone to have all the jangle, sparkle, and growl you'd expect from a resonator guitar. So no matter what you play, the R70BCEK gives you a rich, wide-ranging sonic foundation.

This resonator is ready to rock with a built-in pickup

Washburn loaded the R70BCEK with a Lace Sensor humbucking pickup for those times when you need to plug in. From fingerpicking to strumming to slide playing, the R70BCEK gives you killer tone direct to your amp or mixer. The Lace Sensor humbucker is sensitive enough to pick up even the smallest nuances of your playing. Simple volume and tone controls give you control of your sound onstage. Make sure your performance is heard with the Washburn R70BCEK acoustic-electric roundneck resonator.

Since 1883, Washburn has been producing quality fretted instruments

With humble beginnings in Chicago dating back to the 1880s, Washburn is an American institution in musical instrument manufacturing. From guitars to mandolins, banjos, ukuleles, and more, Washburn has long been a recognized and cherished brand among musicians. Many of the biggest names in folk, blues, and rock 'n' roll have played these well-crafted, quality instruments.
