Description


The RS7SM Rathbone No.7 Orchestra Model is an all-solid tonewood beauty that pairs a solid Sitka Spruce top with solid Mahogany back and sides for a much-loved traditional aesthetic and sound. The OM body shape produces a naturally responsive and voluminous tone which is further enhanced through the use of a classic combination of all-solid Spruce and Mahogany tonewoods. You can expect a sweet and warm voice delivered with superb poise and balance. So, if you’re a guitarist with an affection for a truly authentic acoustic sound paired with a timeless vibe, the RS7SM delivers both in equal measure.  

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.7 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'.
