Description

We have a commitment here at Dream Guitars: to find the perfect guitar for each player who comes to us looking for an instrument to inspire them--and this brand new 2015 Rein RJN-3C might be the perfect guitar for just about anyone out there. Thomas Rein has been building excellent acoustic instruments since the 1970s, ranging from Classical to Lutes to Steel Strings, and has incorporated a series of unique design features to overcome many of the maladies of wooden-bodied instruments: tops with too much belly, bridges pulling up, necks needing multiple resets. His solutions include, and are exhibited here, an alternative top-bracing system which employs a curved brace across the lower bout below the bridge where tone bars traditionally reside, and a fully (and easily) adjustable neck.Innovations aside, this RJN-3C showcases some of the best characteristics of the finest fingerstyle guitars. With Cocobolo Rosewood back and sides for richness and depth, and a European Spruce top French Polished to be as light as possible for clarity and attack, this guitar both whispers and shouts with equal aplomb. Rein has given this guitar Maple and Nigerian Rosewood purflings and a superb glossy finish, imparting a glassy smoothness to the neck which dovetails perfectly with the slinky low action to allow for speed and clarity. But the dream continues! There's also a swooping Florentine Cutaway for easy access to upper frets, and a smaller body which is infinitely comfortable to hold and to play.As crisp as frosty breath on an icy morning, this RJN-3C from Tom Rein has an incredible potential for fingerstylists of all walks, capable of explosive crescendo and delicate ballad. It handles Blues-Jazz to fit Lyle Lovett, percussive taps, or Celtic fingerstyle arrangements with the same level-headedness of a beautiful machine--this guitar is a professional.

Thomas is a friend and a great builder. For fingerstylists, you really can't go wrong with this guitar: the string-to-string articulation is stellar, and Rein's managed to build a beautifully responsive Cocobolo guitar here.
 
One the coolest things about this guitar is its adjustable neck. Seems like all guitars should have this feature.
