Description

Traditional aesthetics meet 21st Century technology.

The R2K Rathbone Orchestra Model 'Double Top' features a technologically advanced sound-table made of two super-thin layers of Koa with a Carbon Fibre lattice in-between.

This ‘Double-Top’ construction enables the sound-table to be a little thinner than a single solid piece of koa but remain strong and ultra-responsive. The result is a super-resonant and voluminous guitar with bags of both character and all-out power.

The all-Koa tonewoods offer stunning exotic visuals while delivering a smooth and focused tone with a good level of high end chime.

Due to the environment in which it was initially designed to be used, the 'OM' was not a large-bodied guitar. In fact, 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'.
