Gorgeous black finish electro-acoustic guitar from Rathbone.

 

A bright focused combination, the R3SMPCEBK combines Solid Spruce on the top with Maple on the back and sides in gloss black finish. This pairing delivers a bright immediate tone with superb projection, Maple is a very dense hardwood, This makes it a good choice for live performance because the clarity of tone cuts through the mix well.

 

The perfect all-rounder, the No.3 has the same scale length as the Orchestra Model but body dimensions closer to a classic dreadnought. The larger body cavity naturally produces greater bass tones, but without sacrificing clarity, and that's the beauty of the Grand-Auditorium. However, a larger body does not mean an unwieldy instrument. Far from it, in fact. The beautiful curves around the waist of the Rathbone No.3 ensure the guitar will sit comfortably on a knee or hang perfectly from your shoulders.
