New ‘No.6’ Parlour Acoustics from Rathbone Guitars

New 'No.6' Parlour Acoustics from Rathbone Guitars

Rathbone Guitars are delighted to announce their new ‘No.6’ parlour acoustic guitars.

Available in two stunning models – R6SB (Spruce / Bocote) and R6M (all Mahogany) – Rathbone No.6 guitars exquisitely capture the spirit of Rathbone Guitars with their time-honoured short-scale parlour design matched with visually captivating and great sounding tonewoods.

The Rathbone No.6 R6SB combines a Solid Spruce top with highly figured Bocote wood for an eye-catching mix that responds similarly to maple instruments. It delivers excellent projection with wonderful clarity, whether stumming or fingerpicking. (SRP £415.00)

The all-mahogany Rathbone R6M parlour model exudes a classy vibe and delivers 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. (SRP £299.00)

Rathbone’s guitar series cover a wide range of body designs and tonewood combinations to cater for a broad selection of acoustic guitarists. With their No.1 Baby-Concert aimed at travelling musicians, through to their electro No.3 Grand-Auditorium models – players of all stages and tastes can easily find a model that suits them perfectly.

No.6 models are the first guitars available from Rathbone to pair a parlour body shape with a slotted headstock. Rathbone state, “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!”

Rathbone No.6 guitars are available to order now exclusively through UK distributors Barnes & Mullins –
