We count our lucky stars when a fingerstyle guitar of this calibre comes into our store. Hot off the presses from St. Louis builder Thomas Rein, we have a brand new, 2016 RJN-3C that's packing some serious heat with its combination of Malaysian Blackwood and European Moon Spruce. In light of increasing restrictions on Brazilian Rosewood trade, many builders are turning to alternatives like Malaysian Blackwood--and we couldn't be happier. Check out the photos; the back and sides are gorgeous, with inky back bands to offset the chocolate grain pattern. Tonally, the Malaysian Blackwood gives this RJN-3C great depth of tone and a profound sonority that's balanced perfectly with glassy treble notes that seem to swell after the initial attack.
Rein's use of European Moon Spruce, moreover, gives this guitar a smooth and balanced voice with a pianistic separation of notes. Featuring Rein's proprietary RJN, or Rein Adjustable Neck joint, the player can quickly and safely modify the angle of the neck by adjusting a set screw in the heelblock inside the guitar, making this an instrument that will continue to perform flawlessly for many years to come. All of that is to say--this RJN-3C is an outstanding fingerstyle guitar that's built to last.

"The voice has real depth and weight in the lower and middle registers that sounds particularly rich in lowered tunings. The setup is slinky and low for fingerstyle, and every detail of construction has been executed elegantly." - Paul Heumiller
"A beautiful guitar with a warm sound, striking overtones, and lots of natural reverb due to the exquisite spruce top. " - Al Petteway
