Description

This is, frankly, a fabulous instrument. Our 2012 R1-12 from Tom Rein is proof that a big voice doesn’t have to come from a big guitar: this petite 12 fretter has a hearty voice with a clean fundamental and crisp trebles. We love the clarity of this Rein, all across the fretboard and/or capo’d. Straightforward Mahogany & Adirondack Spruce body in French Polish with some marks to prove it’s been played in, 24.9” scale with a medium chunky C neck. We enjoyed fingerpicking as much as flatpicking on this little wonder, which is not something we often find with smaller guitars, but it’s just another way in which this Rein R1-12 stands apart from the crowd.
If you’re looking for a small bodied guitar punching far above its weight class, this 2012 Rein will fit the bill handsomely.

Mahogany and Adirondack Spruce lightly finished with French polish creates a guitar with power to spare. This Rein R1-12 is a cannon that’s easy to hold, and will ensure you are one of the loudest players in the room. But don’t worry because there’s also beauty and emotion when you play lightly so this one will do it all.
