Product Description

The ROS-06 is a classic 12th fret OOO design that represents a first for the entry level guitar market. Crafted with the same attention to detail as our top-of-the-line Century Studio guitars, the ROS-06 packs a lot of refinement into a small package. The solid Sitka spruce top and mahogany back and sides give this guitar a warm, even tone, and the 1-13/16 nut width is perfectly spaced for comfortable fingerpicking. The bone nut and saddle help to insure perfect intonation and the body is bound with classic tortoise shell for vintage style.

The sound and balance of this instrument is excellent. Each string is well articulated and clear when strumming or playing finger style. Volume is much better than I expected for this size instrument.

I have bought a lot of guitars. Generally when I buy a guitar under $500 I don't expect much for setup and have a collection of files and tools to make the necessary adjustments. This instrument was set up perfectly with a nice low action and good intonation. The finish of the instrument was excellent and above what is expected at this price range.

The guitar does have a very chunky neck. I find it very comfortable for chords but some with smaller hands may not like it as much. Since this guitar is designed with finger style players in mind the spacing between strings is also wider.

If you ever thought this type of instrument might be your cup of tea, this guitar would be the perfect entry ticket into the style, I certainly am impressed with the instrument.

My only complaint is the poor packaging of the instrument for shipment by Amazon. I am fortunate that the guitar arrived in one piece.

I purchased one of these, an ROS-06, when it became available at a lower price as a customer return in "mint" condition. Shipping was delayed due to bad weather in the northeast, but after finally receiving it and observing that it had survived shipping unscathed, it was, indeed, mint.

Out of the box, my first impression was that perhaps I'd finally come across a true winner; the fit and finish were superb all around. The action was a bit high for my touch, making what felt like a typical 12-52 string set hard to play fingerstyle, though bold and full range sounding when strummed. (Better too high than too low, since the former is more easily addressed.) At that point, I could only echo the sentiment of another reviewer of this model, who could only wonder how they make a profit on such quality materials and workmanship at that price range.

Further into my maiden recital on the instrument, however, I noticed that the intonation was sharp in the upper frets, somewhat noticeably from the ninth fret or so on up, making higher pitch passages a little difficult to digest. Of all the reasons that give me pause in buying a guitar online, sight unseen and sound unheard, accurate intonation is at the top of that list, because I can live with a few visual imperfections as long as it performs as it should all the way up and down the neck.

So, I put the guitar up against a good chromatic tuner and, sure enough, some of the strings were as much as twenty cents sharp at the twelfth fret. Since there was already some reason to bring the action down, I immediately removed the strings, and sanded the saddle to bring within the standard height of 3/32" on the bass side and 2/32" on the treble side.

I would say that I am a novice to low-intermediate guitarist and I enjoy learning fingerstyle/classical guitar more than other styles. I have a classical nylon but sometimes I want that steel-string sound so for a budget fingerstyle steel-string I was deciding between the Seagull S6 Original and the RK-06. I played around with the Seagull S6 Cedar Original at the local guitar shop and while impressed with it, as a shorter female, the size of it wasn't very comfortable for me. Having a cedar classical, I also wanted something a little less sensitive to dents and dings. After a little more research, I decided to spring for the RK-06 while Amazon had a holiday sale on musical instruments.

Here are some of my thoughts:

Sound: it is better than I expected for the price range. I have no complaints about the tone. The intonation is great as far as I can tell and while the tuners seems small and dinky, they keep tune just fine.

Volume: Not as loud as a dreadnought but this is a plus for me as I was looking to avoid that loud, booming sound commonly associated with dreadnoughts. Volume is great for fingerpicking (and for my neighbors who have yet to complain).

Playability: The action is really good. Low but no buzzing - I actually enjoy playing this more than my nylon which still needs a set-up because the low action makes it so easy to play. Ready to go out of the box.

The neck is a little thinner than a classical neck but not by much which makes it great to transition between both guitars. Strings are farther apart than the strings on a regular acoustic guitar so strumming isn't ideal on this guitar. I find the neck very comfortable to play on even if I have short fingers.

Quick first impressions:

The strings have a rusty feel, probably travel (China)-related. Martin Marquis Silk and Steel strings are on the way, and I imagine they will sweeten the guitar up considerably. I tuned it up and tightened the truss rod (no tension on the truss rod whatsoever when I pulled it out of the box), got it into more or less playable neck relief, and found that this guitar has a really nice low end, great consistency of notes across and up-down the neck, and, perhaps most importantly of all, the intonation is very close to perfect (which, according to the laws of physics, acoustics, and western music, doesn't exist anyways). Let's just say it's pretty great. The saddle has to get pulled out and sanded down about 2mm, which should actually pull the low E and A strings into a more acceptable intonation (they are both just a tiny bit sharp when fretted at the 12th fret). My guess is that the fret placement will prove flawless once the saddle and nut are properly height-adjusted.

I have seen complaints in other reviews about the quality of the tuners on this guitar. That is not my impression at all. The gears are good metal, and they turn quite nicely. The strings, particularly the G string, get a bit stuck in the nut, but this can be fixed very easily with a small file and a bit of lubrication, which I do with every guitar. But the tuners seem perfectly adequate, and I would not recommend replacing them unless they are, in fact, defective.

Its appearance is better than average: nice finish, decent looking top wood, looks way better than a sub-$300 guitar should look.
