R&R 000-45 12 FRET MRW/AD
R&R number #19. R&R guitars are designed by Rudi Bults and made by Roman Zajicek, old guitar-friends, Roman the accomplished Luthier, and Rudi the owner of the Fellowship of Acoustics, you are all familiar with. This is the number 19 from the 2nd Batch. the first Batch of 9 guitars (2015) was sold much faster than we anticipated. Also the first 4 of the 2nd batch are sold already.. Establishing this new brand - R&R Guitars is born out of a deep desire to build a guitar - at any level, tone, looks and finish- able to compete with the major high-end guitars such as made by Collings, Santa Cruz, but also Blazer & Henkes, Merrill and even Wayne Henderson. This being an European Project, the only man to ask for this job was Roman Zajicek.
Roman's enthusiasm was inspiring, and together we've pulled out all every trick and piece of knowledge we had available together. Meaning every guitar is built with the best of old and new, with the single purpose to make the best sounding guitar on the planet. And we've gone all the way, meaning the guitar is obviously full hide Glue construction, Not only the dove-tail, but all the way, with a unique neck reinforcement-concept that is based on the T-bar found in old guitars, but improved- with two standing Carbon Bars in the neck to optimize the stiffness like the T-bar did. However we combined it with a trussrod and kept the dove tail neck construction!
Another thing we did is investigate what are the best frets on the planet and we came up with 'Jescar gold' frets. They are very endurable, and have more mass, and therefore more tone compared to nickle frets. Of course the nice gold looks are a cosmetic extra that underlines the quality of the guitar. Other features include X- bracing, forward shifted, scalloped & wide to provide optimum vibration on the surface and increase tone, beautiful Adirondack spruce top with maximum tap-tone, Selected Madagascar Rosewood for back and sides, 12-fret Honduras mahogany neck, custom Abalone fingerboard inlay, ebony fingerboard, ebony bridge, Waverly tuners, beautiful style-45 colorful Herringbone purfling matching the flame Maple binding, Bone Nut and Saddle. The guitar is extremely responsive to even the lightest touch. A very impressive guitar with a 12-frets 000 size body. And yes tonally it's all I imagined! 631mm scale length, 44.8 mm nut width and 58mm string spacing. Includes hardshell case.
