Another remarkably good-looking instrument, the Rathbone R3SBCE combines Solid Spruce and highly figured Bocote wood. Similar in its nature to a maple guitar, this instrument is very powerful and offers the player superb projection, filling a room easily, whether strumming or fingerpicking. 

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.

SOLID SITKA SPRUCE TOP

Spruce provides an ideal balance between strength and flexibility, hence its overwhelming popularity as the wood of choice for tops of acoustic guitars. Spruce’s versatile sonic character makes it ideal for a variety of musical genres and playing styles.

BOCOTE BACK & SIDES

Bocote is considered an exotic wood and has the sound and apearance to earn that moniker. Acoustically, it stands out for having a powerful and warm sound. Bocote has high density and stability, good sustain and a great ability for resonance. This makes it perfect for an acoustic guitar's back & sides.

BONE NUT & SADDLE

Bridge nuts & saddles made from bone are allot denser then their counterparts made from artificial materials like plastic, Micarta or Tusq. Bone nuts & saddles give a brighter more resonant tone with better attack, it will bring any guitar to life.
