Overview

The all-solid RD-227 has a beautiful abalone rosette and abalone top purfling. Featuring authentic pre-war-style appointments, the RD-227 is perfect for players who want a great-sounding all-solid with high-end aesthetics.

The "Torch" with abalone has a solid Sitka spruce top, solid East Indian rosewood back and sides, fully scalloped forward-x bracing, a one-piece mahogany neck, a vintage-style beveled pickguard and an ebony fretboard and vintage-style slot-through bridge.

This guitar also has a wider 1-3/4" nut that makes it great for flatpickers, bluegrass players and singer-songwriters, as well as our redesigned “torch” abalone/M.O.P. headstock inlay and abalone snowflake position markers. The Fishman Matrix EQ pickup/preamp system does an excellent job of conveying your acoustic sound and offers plenty of adjustment with discrete volume and tone controls just underneath the soundhole. Case sold separately.
