The all-Koa tonewoods offer stunning exotic visuals while delivering a smooth and focused tone with a good level of high end chime. This is further enhanced by the construction of the 3 layer 'double top' construction whereby the top wood is crafted with two outer layers of wood and an inner layer of carbon fibre weave. The benefits include an increase in strength, greater flexibility, and a guitar which will give you exceptional resonance and responsiveness when playing.

Due to the environment in which it was initially designed to be used, the 'OM' was not a large-bodied guitar. In fact, few of the early 'modern' guitars would be considered large today. So, the 'OM-sized' Rathbone No.2 is not a large bodied guitar either, but the neck joins the body at the 14th fret, so the scale length is one that we would recognise from most modern guitars. When first used, this 'long' scale length was found to help deliver a remarkably, and some may say disproportionately, powerful and dynamic tone. The tuned strings are under greater tension than on shorter scale guitars, so they give a far greater tonal response and 'punch'.
