Description

Our latest Concert Classical from Thomas Rein comes to us in high style, with forest-grown Indian Rosewood and a tight-grained Red Cedar top. The Rosewood was processed in Germany in the 1960s before it was sold to Joseph Wallo in Arlington, Virginia, who then sold it to Rein in the 1990s when he closed up shop. Accordingly, this brand of Indian Rosewood proceeds the era of plantation-grown Rosewood, and as a result of having been “wild” harvested, it looks (and sounds) quite different from the Indian Rosewood found predominantly in the guitar world today.
The resonance and clarity of this Classical are delightful, especially for a brand new guitar. Extra warmth in the bass and miss fleshes out the voice, and the treble strings provide a crisp flavor to the top end. The Cedar top is French Polished for maximum resonance, and the rest of the instrument is finished in Catalyzed Urethane for durability. Ringing in the soundhole is a custom mosaic rosette, and Tom added premium Gotoh tuners to the headstock for a touch of smooth-operating elegance. The Spanish Cedar neck has a full, D profile that’s glass-smooth—as is the setup on top—and everything comes wrapped up in a TKL hardshell case for safe keeping.

Thomas Rein as one of our long-time builders whose work always impresses us. This classical guitar features forest-grown Indian Rosewood, which has been unavailable for years now. It not only has an amazing look, more dramatic than most plantation wood, but the tone has some extra magic to it as well. It’s rich and warm and musical. This is a world-class guitar.
