Rathbone No.3 R3BCE Double Top

Rathbone No.3 R3BCE Double Top

Traditional aesthetics meet 21st Century technology. 

The R3BCE Rathbone Grand-Auditorium 'Double Top' features a technologically advanced sound-table made of two super-thin layers of Bocote 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 bocote 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 highly figured all-Bocote tonewoods offer a mesmerising marbled grain while delivering a warm and articulate tone with superb projection. 


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.
