Often referred to as “The Father of Boutique Guitars”, Rick Turner’s contribution to musical instruments and pro sound may not be known to the general public, but his results have definitely been heard.He started as an apprentice repairing guitars with occasional coffeehouse gigs in Boston, growing into an established folk guitarist in Greenwich Village. That success led to a trip out West where he began repairing instruments for the Grateful Dead. His ingenuity contributed to the formation of a company focused on maximizing the live sound and instruments of Grateful Dead shows.After fine tuning 125,000 watts of power delivering impeccable sound to 450 drivers, his focus is redirected back to guitars where he found himself in the studio with Fleetwood Mac for the Rumours sessions. The iconic Model One guitar played by Lindsey Buckingham stemmed from those sessions and became the blueprint for Rick Turner guitars.Turner’s dedication and study of quality sound ultimately led to the creation of the D-TAR wavelength – an acoustic system utilizing a piezo pickup, a condenser mic, and an 18-volt preamp specifically designed to improve the quality of tone and performance of acoustic instruments in live situations.Turner’s incorporation of the D-TAR system into his handmade and licensed Renaissance guitars, including the MKB4SB 4-string bass is what makes these guitars unique and highly sought after.Neck Material – MahoganyNeck Finish – Natural SatinNut Material – BoneFretboard Material – RosewoodScale Length – 34″Body Shape – Turner RenaissanceTop Material – OkoumBody Material – Okoum w/ Abalone PurflingCenter Block Material – MahoganyBridge – Rick Turner Design w/ 7 degree saddle tilt – Strings through bodyElectronics – USA made Seymour Duncan/Rick Turner D-TAR SystemFinish – High Gloss Sunburst
