Description

The Rathbone No. 2 Acoustic Guitar uses a now classic 'Orchestra Model' body shape. This beautiful body shape is said to have been originally created in an attempt to lure members of dance orchestras away from their Banjos, toward the greater projection of the steel-stringed Guitar.

The all-Mahogany tonewoods of this R2M Orchestra Model are rich and mellow in appearance and deliver a warm and vocal tone. Helped by the classic-sized body cavity, these Guitars are remarkably punchy and dynamic with good mid-range projection.

Due to the environment in which it was initially designed to be used, the 'OM' was not a large-bodied Guitar. Infact, few of the early 'modern' Guitars would be considered large today. So, the 'OM-sized' Rathbone No.2 is not a large bodied Guitar either, but the neck joins the body at the 14th fret, so the scale length is one that we would recognise from most modern Guitars. When first used, this 'long' scale length was found to help deliver a remarkably, and some may say disproportionately, powerful and dynamic tone. The tuned strings are under greater tension than on shorter scale Guitars, so they give a far greater tonal response and 'punch'.
