Ryohei Echizen is quickly becoming one of our favorite builders, because his guitars are uniformly spectacular in tone, build, and aesthetics. This is the Echizen R3 model in Ziricote back and sides and a stunning Bearclaw European Spruce top. As we have come to expect from Ryohei, the build quality is top notch, with well designed and executed motifs. Apart from the beautiful looks, this R3 has the tone to knock out almost any thing you put up against it. This guitar is truly inspiring. The bass is proud and present, rumbling at the slightest touch, while the trebles sing with a distinct crispness and choral sound. Ryohei is one to keep an eye on, and surely before long it will be hard to get your hands on an Echizen guitar.

"I have loved watching Ryohei's progress as a builder. We had his second guitar here in the shop some time ago, and that one was spectacular. Fast forward to number 25 and it is even better; the tone is perfection, as is the build. The French Polish finish is gorgeous and thin for optimal resonance." - Paul Heumiller
"A bit more bass response than the R2 with the same attention to detail, design and playability that Japanese builders are known for." - Al Petteway
