This wonderful R3SKCE combines the greater size of the Grand Auditorium body shape and the breath-taking beauty of Koa to stunning effect. Clear, bright and sparkly in tone thanks to the Solid Spruce and Koa combination, this instrument is powerful and linear in its delivery. Ideal for strident strumming and well-articulated fingerstyle playing.
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.
