RL-18 Dreadnought Guitar # 043

We call our mahogany dreadnought style guitars RL-18's. We interchange Mahogany and Sapele for our Back and Side wood when we build this model guitar. This one was built using Sapele. It's pretty much the same as mahogany, just usually a little prettier. This guitar sports a Red Spruce Top, Sapele Back and Sides, Red Spruce Bracing, bone nut and saddle. We even used Spanish Cedar for the kerfing inside the guitar, so you get a delicious whiff of cedar when you open the case. We have found that using this blend of materials gives our customers the tone they are looking for in this style of guitar.

People usually buy big guitars because they want big sound. You know, to have the ability to be heard over other inherently loud instruments. No problem here. This guitar will deliver plenty of punch per pound. Nice, sweet tone too, when that is what you are looking for.

We are currently offering this guitar at a reduced price of $2250, with a top quality Guardian hard shell case included.
