The RD-316's top is made from solid AAA Adirondack Spruce. The back and sides are made from solid African Mahogany. The 316 has a nut width of 1-11/16 and the one-piece neck is fitted to the body with a hand-cut dovetail joint. The fretboard and bridge are ebony. It's finished in a thin coat of nitrocellulose lacquer for resonance and historical accuracy.
The RD-316's aesthetics have been heavily influenced by the standard workhorse dreadnought guitarists have relied on for the past 80 years. The tasteful appointments include descending sized dots on the fretboard, solid black bridge pins and endpin, subdued tortoise body binding and a traditional, understated rosette. The hardware is nickel plated, down to the Grover butterbean tuners. 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.
